TotalEnergies confirms oil leak at Aegina oil field

TotalEnergies confirmed on Thursday that there was an oil leak on the Aegina floating production storage and shipping vessel, which has a storage capacity of 2.3 million units.

TotalEnergies Country Communications Manager, Dr. Charles Ebereonwu, disclosed this in a statement.

He said the accident that occurred on November 15 will not affect the company’s daily crude oil production capacity.

He added that the incident will not impact the coastline or the communities surrounding the facility.

“This was not a major leak and the sheen was treated with appropriate response and was mostly reduced.

“The coastline and local communities have not been affected,” he said, asserting that oil production at the 200,000 barrel-per-day facility, which can store 2.3 million barrels of crude oil, was “unaffected by the incident.” .

DAILY POST reports that Nigeria’s crude oil production capacity will decrease from 1.57 million barrels per day in September 2023 to 1.56 million barrels per day in October, exceeding the Oil Exporting Countries (OPEC) quota of 174 million barrels per day. It fell below 10,000 barrels.
