Following a ninety-day voyage from Korea, Total’s FPSO Egina arrived at the Port of Lagos in Nigeria on January 25.
The massive FPSO, which features a length of 330 meters and a width of 61 meters, is the biggest ship in West Africa, according to LADOL Free Zone.
“The arrival of the Total Nigeria Egina FPSO to LADOL Free Zone is a historic milestone for industrialisation in Nigeria,” LADOL stressed.
Egina started its journey in October last year, departing Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in Geoje. The newbuilding had 200 crew members on board during its voyage to Lagos, only calling at Mauritius and Cape Town.
The 219,830 gross ton vessel is designed to hold 2.3 million barrels of oil. It will be moved to Egina oil field operated by Total and located some 130 kilometers off the coast of Nigeria at water depths of more than 1,500 meters.
