Total Goes Deep Off Nigeria

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Total reportedly launched its second Nigerian deep water drilling project, scheduled to come on stream in 2012 and expected eventually to yield 180,000 barrels a day, according to an AFP report. The new Usan project follows Total's first Nigerian deep water investment, the Akpo field. Deep water fields are further out to sea than offshore fields in shallower waters nearer the coastline. The new field will be operated by Elf Petroleum Nigeria Limited, a Total subsidiary. (Source: AFP)
