TotalEnergies has started production from Ikike field offshore Nigeria.
Ikike platform, in OML99 about 20 km off the coast in water depth of about 20 m, is tied back to the existing Amenam offshore infrastructure through a 14 km multiphase pipeline. It will deliver peak production of 50,000 boe/d by yearend, the company said in a release July 25.
The project leverages existing infrastructure and is designed to minimize greenhouse gas emissions: estimated at less than 4kg CO2e/boe, the company said.
TotalEnergies is operator at OML99 with 40% interest. The Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. (NNPC) holds 60%.
