Total Exploration and Production has achieved No-Routine-Gas-Flaring at its Egina FPSO offshore Nigeria. The achievement follows the commissioning of the gas compression system on the Egina field, according to Charles Ebereonwu, Total’s country communications manager.

Ebereonwu said in a statement from Lagos, that the associated gas from the field was now being compressed, transported via the Akpo/Amenam gas Export line and monetized through the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas.

He explained that Total has honored its commitment to the rule of law of its host country by fully abiding by the Nigerian Government’s Gazetted Flare Gas Regulations of 2018.

“This landmark achievement, a first of its kind in Nigeria, further drives home Total’s ambition to be the responsible energy major by actively reducing our CO2 emission footprints in all our activities, said the Senior Vice President Africa, Nicolas Terraz.
