Lekoil, the Nigerian oil and gas exploration and development company, has had a heavy focus on West Africa of late. Therefore, they have been pleased to announce that oil is flowing on to onshore shorage tanks.
All onshore facilities have been commissioned and signed offshore by regulators at the Otakipo Marginal Field. The offshore pipeline leading from the storage tanks to the tanker offloading manifold is 80 per cent complete, according to the latest report released in December 2016.
CEO of Lekoil, Lekan Akinyanmi, said "We’re delighted to announce this key milestone from the Otakikpo field. I would like to thank the entire team that has worked so hard on this project, our partners Green Energy, investors, debt financiers, our host communities and our government regulators for their continued support.” The latest updates on Lekoil's progress at the Otakikpo Marginal Field can be found here.
