Eni Begins Production At Obiafu 41 In Nigeria


Italy’s Eni said Oct. 23 it has started gas and condensate production from the Obiafu 41 discovery in the Niger Delta.

The startup comes only three weeks after well completion thanks to a new integrated model in which various disciplines work in parallel from the exploration phase and all synergies with existing production facilities are properly leveraged, Eni said in a news release.

Production is expected to reach about 3 million cubic meters of gas and 3,000 barrels of condensate per day at the end of ramp-up.

For the most part, gas will go to the domestic market for its power sector. The company said gas will be processed at the Eni-operated Ob-Ob plant before moving on to the Eni-operated Okpai Power Plant, where an upgrade is underway to increase capacity to 1 GW from 500 MW.

“Once the upgrade is completed, Eni will generate 20% of the entire national electricity production, establishing itself as the leading electricity producer in the country,” the company said. Okpai is Nigeria’s first independent power plant.
