LONDON, Jan. 21 -- Mobil Producing Nigeria, a unit of ExxonMobil Corp., has let a $220 million contract to a consortium led by AMEC PLC for upgrade work for its oil and gas production facilities in southeast Nigeria over the next 5 years.

AMEC has teamed with Jagal and Netco to manage the project, provide services, and prepare engineering designs to extend the lifespan of production facilities. An AMEC spokesman told OGJ that it hadn't been yet given data on expansion increases as this was a long-term project.

Mobil has more than 800,000 acres in shallow water and production comes from 90 offshore platforms, with 283 flowing completions in 353 wells with a production capacity of about 720,000 b/d of crude, condensate, and natural gas liquids.
