Nigeria: 3D Seismic in Place for Otakikpo Phase Two

Lekoil and Green Energy International joint venture has signed a contract with Sinopec Changjiang Engineering Services to acquire 197 sq km of 3D seismic data at the Otakikpo marginal field onshore and offshore in the south-eastern part of the Niger Delta, to update the existing 2D coverage.

The seismic acquisition over Otakikpo is expected to start in Q1 2018 to kick-off phase two development of Otakikpo.

According to Lekoil, all relevant permits are currently being pursued prior to starting mobilization.

Following the completion of this seismic acquisition, the company will then process and interpret the new 3D seismic data.

As the Otakikpo field nears Phase One target production of 10,000 bopd, the joint venture is now focused on phase two of the Otakikpo field development plan which aims to increase steady state production up to approximately 20,000 bopd.

Lekan Akinyanmi, LEKOIL’s CEO, said, “With significant milestones already achieved in 2017 as the Otakikpo technical and financial partner, today’s announcement demonstrates LEKOIL’s progress into the next phase of delivery and growth. The company expects the phase two development to be fully funded by industry players, which the company is already in discussions with.”
