TotalEnergies begins production from Akpo West field offshore Nigeria

TotalEnergies and its partners in Nigeria have commenced production from the Akpo West field in the Gulf of Guinea.

Akpo West, which is located 135km off the coast, is producing through a tieback to the existing Akpo floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility at the Akpo condensate field. Operating since 2009, the FPSO had drawn 124,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) in 2023.

“This project fits the Company’s strategy of developing low-cost and low-emission projects.”
