Amni is planning with Joint Venture partner NAPIMS, the investment arm of the Nigerian NNPC, the field development plan for the Tubu oil and gas field in shallow water southeast Niger Delta.
The undeveloped discovery is the main asset in the Oil Mining Lease OML 52 that Amni purchased from Chevron in 2013 who had previously performed a 7-well appraisal on the field. OML 52 is a shallow water block in the southeastern Niger Delta containing the Tubu oil and gas discovery. The block partially straddles Bonny Island where the Bonny oil terminal and NLNG are located. Tubu was appraised by ChevronTexaco in the 2000s, together with comprehensive geological studies and advanced development plans.
Amni plans to drill 8 new wells as part of field development.
