Samsung Heavy Industries Nigeria Limited (SHIN) has successfully achieved the first oil of 200,000 barrels per day capacity Egina FPSO on Dec. 29 in 2018, according to a Nigerian newspaper 'LEADERSHIP.'
 
The Egina FPSO, one of the world’s largest FPSO, and indeed the largest FPSO ever deployed by the Total Group, was built for the French oil giant by SHIN. Production from Egina field of 200,000 barrels per day at peak will increase Nigerian current crude oil production by 10%.
 
Samsung Heavy completed the FPSO mooring well in advance – completed on September 17,2018 against target date of September 23, 2018, riser hook-up activities and required offshore commissioning, putting an exemplary effort in achieving First Oil in 2018.
 
The company had also successfully completed the FPSO work in SHI-MCI yard before it continued its work offshore under strict Nigerian local content regulations with similar safety and quality standards applicable in the company’s Geoje shipyard in Korea.
 
According to a statement by the company, this volume of onshore and offshore work had never been accomplished in Nigeria before now. 
 
“With all these accomplished, the high-risk portion of the Egina project has now been completed. This achievement have been followed by very good response from Nigerian authorities, international clients and earned major headlines in the press.
 
This leads SHI to gain competitive edge in future offshore project orders in West Africa, of course including Nigeria,” the company explained. A SHIN representative said “We are very proud to announce the successful achievement of first oil in 2018, which is adding another feather in our cap, subsequent to our completion of the first ever Nigerian Onshore Integration works for Egina FPSO with thorough preparation in compliance with Nigeria Local Content.”
