Total achieves flare-out on Egina field



Total Exploration and Production says it has achieved No-Routine-Gas-Flaring on its Egina Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO)  operations, following commissioning of Gas Compression System on the Egina field.

Mr Charles Ebereonwu, the Country Communications Manager of Total, made this known in a statement issued on Saturday in Lagos.

He said that Total had again honoured its commitment to the rule of law of its host country by fully abiding by Nigerian Government Gazetted Flare Gas Regulations of 2018.

“This landmark achievement, a first of its kind in Nigeria, further drives home Total’s ambition to be the responsible energy major by actively reducing our CO2 emission footprints in all our activities,” the statement quoted the Senior Vice President Africa, Nicolas Terraz, saying.

“The Egina Field is part of Total’s Oil Mining Lease (OML) 130, some 150 kilometres south of the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.

He said the execution of the Egina project also involved significant local content contribution in Nigeria, including the construction of the First FPSO Integration Quay in Africa.

“All these achieved with the first Nigerian based FPSO Project Management Team, with over, 46 million direct man-hours performed in-country and over 569,000 man-hours of Human Capacity Development training across all Egina Engineering, Construction and Procurement contracts,” he added.
