Eni begins production at Obiafu 41 discovery in Nigeria


Eni has started gas and condensate production from the Obiafu 41 discovery in the Niger Delta, 3 weeks after well completion.

The discovery contains approximately 28 billion m3 of gas and 60 million bbl of condensate, and the gas from this discovery will largely be channelled to the domestic market in order to feed the power sector.

At the end of ramp-up, production will reach a capacity of approximately 3 million m3 of gas and 3000 bpd of condensate.

The gas from this discovery will be processed at the Eni-operated Ob-Ob plant, and then sent to the Okpai Power Plant, also operated by Eni. Okpai, Nigeria’s first independent power plant, currently has an installed capacity of 500 MW and an upgrade is underway which will double its capacity to 1 GW. Once the upgrade is completed, Eni will generate 20% of the entire national electricity production.
