What’s the Scope of Chevron’s Activities in Nigeria?
For over five decades that Chevron has been in Nigeria, the company has grown to become the third-largest producer of oil in Nigeria, investing more than $3 billion into the economy yearly. Operating under a joint-venture agreement with the Nigerian National Petroleum Commission (NNPC) which owns 60 percent, Chevron through its principal subsidiary, Chevron Nigeria Limited, as well as other subsidiaries in Nigeria, has assets on land, swamp and near offshore concessions in the Niger Delta region. Chevron also has extensive interests in deepwater blocks in Nigeria.
Now, let’s explore Chevron’s business portfolio in Nigeria:
Chevron’s Crude Oil Exploration in the Niger Delta
Most of Chevron’s activities in Nigeria are mostly in the onshore and near offshore parts of the Niger Delta.
Chevron has been granted Oil Mining Leases concessions to prospect, explore, produce and engage in the marketing of crude oil across Nigeria. These concessions include OML 113 which the company has an 18 percent non-operated working interest, the 80 percent-owned and operated OML 127 and OML 140 of which Chevron has a 95 percent working license. Other concessions include OML 139 (30 percent non-operated working interest), OML 132 (100 percent working interest), and OML 128 and OML 129. Chevron has also been granted Oil Prospecting Lease (OPL) including OPL 214 (20 percent non-operated working interest) and OML 247 (54 percent owned and operated).
Chevron’s Deepwater Interests in Nigeria
In the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, Chevron has interests ranging from 20 to 100 percent, in six non-operated and three operated deepwater blocks.
The Agbami field, one of Nigeria’s largest deepwater blocks spanning 45,000 acres about 113 km off the coast of the central Niger Delta region, is operated by Chevron, with the company having a 67.3 percent interest in the field. At an approximate depth of approximately 4800 feet, the Agbami field is a subsea development that’s tied back to a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel. In 2019, after the completion of the original Agbami development scope (Agbami 1, 2, 3), Chevron continued infill drilling to offset field decline.
Chevron has a 30 percent non-operated interest in the Usan field, reaching depths of 2461 feet, and is located 100 km from the eastern Niger Delta coast. The company also has plans in the works to develop wells in the Aparo field and third-party-owned Bonga SW field, which would be tied back to an FSPO vessel. These deepwater blocks, sharing a common geologic structure, lie in 4300 feet of water, and are 113 km off the western Niger Delta coast.
Chevron’s Involvement in Natural Gas in Nigeria
Chevron is also heavily invested in the natural gas industry in Nigeria. According to its website, Chevron is involved with the Western Niger Delta and Escravos Gas Plant, the Escravos Gas-to-Liquids facility and the Sonam Development Project.
The Escravos Gas Plant (EGP) operated by Chevron Nigeria Limited, has a total capacity of 680 million cubic feet per day of natural gas and LPG with a daily condensate export capacity of 58,000 barrels. Chevron also has a 40 percent interest in the EGP Project Phase 3B. The Escravos Gas-to-Liquid (EGTL) facility is jointly operated by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Chevron, with a total daily capacity of 33,000 barrels.
The Sonam Field Development Project on the other hand is designed to process the natural gas through the Escravos Gas Plant (EGP) and deliver to the domestic gas market, having an average daily production of 11,000 barrels of liquid and 89 cubic feet of natural gas in 2019, per Chevron website. The interest of Chevron in the Sonam Field Development Project is 40 percent. Furthermore, Chevron has a 19.5 percent interest in the Olokola Liquefied Natural Gas Free Zone Enterprise which will operate the Olokola Liquefied Natural Gas Project.
What’s more? Chevron has a 36.7 percent interest in the West African Gas Pipeline Company. With such a degree of interest in the West African Gas Pipeline Company, Chevron is one of the largest shareholders, hence allowing the company to jointly own and operate the 678km West African Gas Pipeline. Through this gas pipeline, neighbouring countries including Togo, Ghana, and Benin are supplied with Nigerian natural gas to generate electricity and for industrial applications. The West African Gas Pipeline is capable of transporting approximately 170 million cubic feet of natural gas a day.
