Eni makes significant gas discovery onshore Niger Delta

39526728855 9deb356eb7 zItaly’s Eni has made a significant discovery of gas and condensates onshore Nigeria, with reserves estimated at one tcf of gas and 60 mmbbl of condensate as part of its near-field onshore drilling campaign in the Niger Delta

Eni’s, affiliated company NAOC, which holds a 20 per cent operating stake alongside the state-owned NNPC (60 per cent) and Oando (20 per cent), made the find in the deeper sequences of the Obiafu-Obrikom fields with the Obiafu-41 deep well.

The Obiafu-41 Deep well has reached a total depth of 4.374 m encountering an important gas and condensate accumulation within the deltaic sequence of Oligocene age comprising more than 130m of high-quality hydrocarbon-bearing sands.

The discovery has further potential that will be assessed with the next appraisal campaign, Eni stated.

The well can deliver in excess of 100 mscfd of gas and 3,000 bpd of associated condensates and will be immediately put on-stream to increase NAOC’s gas production.

The discovery is part of a drilling campaign planned by NAOC JV and aimed at exploring near-field and deep pool opportunities as immediate time to market opportunities.

Eni has been present in Nigeria since 1962, with operated and non-operated production, development and exploration activities on a total of 30,049 sq km in the onshore and offshore areas of the Niger Delta. In 2018, Eni’s equity hydrocarbon production amounted to100,000 boepd.
