TotalEnergies and its partners has announced the start of production from the Akpo West field on the PML2 license in Nigeria.

Located 135 km off the coast, Akpo West is tied back to the existing Akpo floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, which started-up in 2009 and produced 124 000 boe/d 2023. By mid-2024, Akpo West will add 14 000 bpd condensate production, to be followed by up to 4 million m3 of gas by 2028.

The Akpo West development leverages the existing Akpo facilities to keep costs low and minimise greenhouse gas emissions. The project’s carbon intensity is expected to be below 5 kg CO2e/boe and will contribute to reduce the average carbon intensity of TotalEnergies’ portfolio.

“After Ikike in 2022, TotalEnergies is pleased to start production of another tie-back project in Nigeria, Akpo West, which will contribute to maintaining the production of the existing Akpo facilities by developing additional nearby resources. This project fits the Company’s strategy of developing low-cost and low-emission projects”, said Mike Sangster, Senior Vice President Africa, Exploration and Production at TotalEnergies. “This project leverages TotalEnergies’ solid footprint in Nigeria and will quickly bring value to the country, TotalEnergies and its partners.”
