The Oyo field, one of the earliest offshore oil discoveries made in Nigeria, is located on Leases 120 and 121, roughly 70km off the coast in a water depth of 410 metres.

Segun Omidele, vice president of exploration and production of Allied Energy, said, “We are prepared to begin drilling operations for the Oyo well-7 with the objective of increasing production from the Pliocene and exploring the potential of the deeper Miocene.”

In January 2013, the company had signed a deed of assignment with Transocean Limited and Nigerian Petroleum Development Corporation (NPDC) to spud the Oyo well-7. Drilling was expected to commence in April this year.

Allied Energy is the operator of the Oyo field, holding a 100 per cent interest.
