Egina field is located 150km off the coast of Nigeria and about 20km South-West of Akpo field. The field lies within OML 130 in water depths ranging from 1150-1750m.
The field was discovered in December 2003 with the Egina-1 well. Following the discovery, the appraisal well Egina-2 was drilled in October 2004 which preceded further seismic processing and drilling of three additional wells within September 2006 and January 2007. The five wells drilled in the Egina field encountered 60 to 80 metres of oil in Miocene sands. The light oil is rated at 28° API and the estimated reserves is circa 548 million barrels.
Egina has two major fields: Egina main and Egina South field. The Egina main field development plan (FDP) approved by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), proposed 44 wells including 22 producers and 22 water injectors with a network of Umbilicals, Flowlines and Risers connecting the Subsea production Systems to the FPSO. To date, 30 of the proposed FDP wells (16 producers and 14 water injectors) have been drilled, completed, and connected on-stream. The remaining development wells are planned for drilling in 2022 and 2023.
