Shell operated Egbolom field, in Oil Mining Lease (OML) 23, is the asset to have in Nigeria’s impending Marginal Field round.
Ibe Kachikwu, the Minister of state for Petroleum Resources, has proposed an asset sale this year and the country’s regulatory agency, the Department of Petroleum Resources, is working frantically to deliver on the call.
Of all the 40+ fields likely to be on offer, Egbolom, an onshore (Swamp) asset, located in the Central Niger Delta, has the highest estimated Ultimate Recoverable (2P) Reserves of 85Million barrels, a volume that is over 30% higher than the second largest field, which is located in the prolific south east shallow water Niger Delta.
The smallest field in the play is Chevron operated Obira field, located in OML 89.
Egbolom was discovered in 1982, and has lain fallow ever since. The Central Niger Delta swamp is the site of one of the most militant, oil theft and crude oil flow disruption activity in the entire Niger Delta basin.

This is a welcome development , hope this will bring more development to the area and it’s citizens.
All resources and social amenities for the good people of Egbolom must be distributed accordingly!!
There shall be no room for discrimination…Any attempt to distribute peace and order must be avoided, God bless Egbolom!!

THANK GOD FOR THIS DEVELOPMENT IN OUR COMMUNITY,WE HOPE IT WILL FOSTER THE PEACE IN THE COMMUNITY.GOD BLESS (EGBOLOM)
Thank God for Egbolom. We pray this more development, peace and progress in Egbolom and Abua at large. May the company deal with the Community with a clean and clear conscience and use the policy of divide and rule as in other communities that had suffered from oil exploration. may God Almighty who deposited the oil be glorified.
Egbolom community are the Israelites of Abua, we pray for long life to enjoy all this incoming development.
Its unfortunate that some of our father’s that longed to see this day didn’t make it. But “abulor osugha abuor oleeh” meaning those remaining alive are meant to eat. ThankGod for life
