Eni starts gas, condensate production at Obiafu 41 discovery in Nigeria

Eni SpA started gas and condensate production from the Obiafu 41 discovery in the Niger Delta, which will help fuel power generation in Nigeria.

After the ramp-up, production will total about 3 million cubic meters of gas per day, while condensate will reach 3,000 barrels per day, according to an Oct. 23 news release from the Italian company.

The discovery contains about 28 billion cubic meters of gas and 60 million barrels of condensate, Eni said.

After the gas is processed at the Ob-Ob plant, it will power the 500-MW Okpai power plant. Eni operates both plants.

Eni said the Okpai power plant will increase its installed capacity to 1 GW after an upgrade.

The company will generate 20% of Nigeria's electricity production following the upgrade, making it the largest electricity producer in the country.
