FMC Technologies has received an order from Chevron subsidiary Star Deep Water Petroleum for the provision of subsea equipment for operations in the Agbami field, offshore Nigeria.
Agbami field is the most prolific oil field currently in production in the country’s deep-water, and has consistently delivered at the plateau of 250,000 BOPD since August 2009. The field was commissioned in 2008 at 70,000BOPD.
” FMC Technologies has supported the Agbami field development for several years,” said Tore Halvorsen, FMC Technologies’ Senior Vice President, Subsea Technologies. “This subsea equipment will provide additional production and help extend the life of this deepwater development.”
Agbami straddles Oil Mining Leases (OMLs) 127 and 128, and is located in 1,463 metre water depth. Chevron’s partners in the project include Famfa Oil Limited (holder of the licence), Petrobras, Statoil and the state hydrocarbon company Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) .
