Total in Nigeria-2

Total says that its subsidiary, Total Exploration & Production Nigeria Ltd, in association with Conoil Producing Limited, has discovered hydrocarbons in the central portion of the Oil Mining Lease OML 136, offshore Western Nigeria.

The Agge-3B.T1 well aimed at exploring an undrilled compartment of the Agge structure. It was located in a water depth of 140 metres and reached a total depth of 2,710 metres. The well discovered several gas bearing reservoirs totaling a gross thickness in excess of 150 metres. A production test performed over the lower intervals yielded a production of 21 million cubic feet of gas per day on a 36/64'' choke. Studies are ongoing to assess further development options for the Agge-3B.T1 well, together with other discoveries on the block.

Total Exploration & Production Nigeria Ltd is a 40% partner in the OML 136 license, in association with Conoil Producing Limited (60%), operator.

Total's commitment to local communities Total is committed to promoting the development of local communities through its activities and actively encourages the use of Nigerian resources wherever possible, over and above local regulations.

The Akpo project, with production started in 2009, in which Total displayed its expertise to ensure sustainable development of the country's energy resources in the deep offshore, has generated more than 11 million man-hours in Nigeria and will generate up to an overall total of 15 million man-hours in Nigeria by the time it is complete.

The Usan project will follow suit with approximately 60% of man-hours planned in Nigeria. The basic engineering studies for the Egina field on Oil Mining Lease (OML) 130 are performed in Nigeria. The Group will continue to develop the expertise of Nigerian companies in deep offshore project-related work. This is particularly the case in the Niger Delta region, from which more than half of Total's Nigerian employees originate and where the majority of the Group's operations in the country are located.
