Africa Oil and partners submit FDP draft for Project Oil Kenya

16 Sep 2021

Africa Oil, Tullow Oil, and Total Energies have submitted a draft field development plan (FDP) to the Kenyan government for their US$3.4bn Kenya development project (Project Oil Kenya). The submission was made after the redesign of the project had been finalized by the joint venture (JV) partners.

Project Oil Kenya involves the development of oil discoveries contained in the 10BB and 13T blocks contained in Turkana County. Its first phase will now include the Ngamia, Ekales, Amosing, and Twiga (NEAT) fields, and will aim to unlock 390mmbo.

In the earlier plan, the partners estimated a higher oil production plateau of 72,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and the volume of the recoverable oil at 433m barrels of oil (mmbbl). However, the companies have revised their previous plans and now aiming to achieve a higher oil production plateau of 120,000bopd. The gross oil recovery is also expected to be 585mmbbl over the life of the field.

The total gross capital expenditure to achieving first oil from Project Oil Kenya is made up of approximately US$2bn for the upstream part and approximately US$1.4bn for the pipeline.
