Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 04 February 2016 09:00

Panoro Energy announced that the final works on the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, for the Aje field operations, have been completed. The vessel has left Singapore and is expected to arrive in Nigeria mid-March 2016, following a brief stop in Cape Town.

All key equipment related to the field development has been delivered to Nigeria. Anchor handling operations in the field started in January and will continue until mid-February. The construction vessel has commenced operations and will install the subsea equipment including the manifold and flowlines during February. Once the FPSO arrives in Nigeria it will be hooked-up to the mooring system and risers and a short test of the production systems will be conducted.

“We are excited to be approaching first oil at Aje, offshore Nigeria,” said John Hamilton, Panoro’s chief executive officer. “Significant operational and contractual progress has been made on the final phase of field development. With the drilling phase now concluded, the installation work and the arrival of the FPSO are the main remaining work streams. The field is expected to be producing by the end of March 2016.”

Panoro Energy is an independent exploration and production company with assets in Nigeria and Gabon.
