Main field

Agbami is a subsea development with wells tied back to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. It has produced more than 1 billion barrels of oil and still counts with significant reserves. The field is located in a water column of 1.500 m.

The original Agbami development scope (Agbami phases 1, 2, 3) and the initial phase of the “Agbami Infill Drilling Program” are complete. Additional infills, backed by regular 4D seismic monitors (monitor 3), are planned in the short term.

PPL 2003

PPL (Petroleum Prospecting License) 2003 is located just adjacent to PML 52. The license covers an area of 145.4 km2. It includes the Ikija discovery and other leads/prospects to be developed and tied-in to the Agbami FPSO in the mid-term. Ikija is an oil and gas accumulation located in a 3-way anticline structure containing high quality fluids similar to Agbami. Prime 127 has 8% non-operated working interest in this PPL.
