Lekoil said that oil has flowed from the Otakikpo Marginal field in Nigeria to onshore storage tanks, from which it will be transported when an offshore pipeline is finished. All onshore facilities have been commissioned and approved by regulators. The pipeline connecting the storage tanks with the tanker offloading manifold is 80% complete, the company said. Upon the line’s completion, shipments to an export terminal will begin, and field production is expected to ramp up gradually to 10,000 B/D. Lekoil is the operator with a 40% interest in the field. Green Energy holds the remaining interest.
