An exciting technical visit to the Djeno Oil Terminal, a few kilometers south of Pointe Noire, attracted more than 20 YPs. The terminal’s technical director gave an interesting presentation on the facilities, followed by a plant tour. The Djeno terminal treats 250,000 BOPD, almost 90% of Congo production. It is the largest oil terminal in west Africa and the largest owned and operated by Total E&P. Two of the commercial oil blends sold from the terminal are the Djeno Melange and the Nkossa Blend. The visit was sponsored by Eni Congo and Total E&P Congo. The SPE YP programs have generated a lot of interest and motivation in Congo, with YP membership in the SPE Congo Section soaring from 2 to 32 in the past half-year.
