Akpo, Nigeria,


Commercial Asset Valuation and Forecast to 2028


The Akpo field is located 160 km off Port Harcourt in Nigeria. The water depth of Akpo varies from 1,100m to 1,700m. The area of the field is 100 square kilometers. Akpo was discovered in the year 2000 and project was sanctioned in the year 2005. The production from Akpo contributes to nearly 9% of Nigeria’s total production. Previously, Akpo was operated under Oil Prospecting License (OPL)-246 but now it comes under Oil Mining Lease (OML)-130. Akpo is one of the largest deep underwater offshore projects. It was one of the largest oil production fields in the year 2009.

Total Upstream Nigeria Limited (TUPNI), a subsidiary of Total SA is the operator of Akpo field with 24% equity stake. The other equity partners are Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), South Atlantic Petroleum (Sapetro) of Nigeria, Chinese National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) of China and Petrobras of Brazil.

Akpo field produces condensate having 45.17°API and 0.06 % sulfur. The temperature at the reservoir is at a maximum value of 112°C and has a maximum pressure of 700 bars. Due to these conditions the trapped hydrocarbons inside the reservoir are light. The fluid separates into condensate and gas after extraction from the well.

The proved and probable reserves in the field are estimated to be 620 MMbbls of condensate and 1 Tcf (terra cubic feet) of gas. The production from Akpo started in March 2009 and during 2009 it produced 51.01 MMbbls of condensate and 85,159 MMcf of natural gas.

Akpo is expected to produce for about 20 years with complete abandonment by 2028. It is expected to generate $63.02 billion in revenue (undiscounted) during its remaining life (starting January 1, 2010) and is expected to yield an IRR of around 37.1%.
