Nigeria’’s oil and gas industry is set to record another milestone as the $3.3 billion Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) vessel for the 200,000 barrels per day capacity Egina deep water oilfield will arrive Nigeria from South Korea on Tuesday.
The FPSO, which was built by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), sailed away from the quay side at Samsung Yard in Geoje, South Korea, on October 31, 2017, on its long anticipated journey to Nigeria, which was initially estimated to last for 90 days.
The Guardian gathered that when it arrives at the Samsung Yard (SHI-MCI FZE quayside) in Lagos on Tuesday, the FPSO, which is currently offshore Angola, will be integrated locally before it sails away to the deep offshore oil field.
