Eni is present in Ghana in the upstream sector with the Integrated Oil & Gas Development Project, in the Offshore Cape Three Points block, with a 44.44% share.
The OCTP project start-up was achieved in just two years and a half as well as three months earlier than scheduled and with a record time-to-market. Production will be carried out via a floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO), which will produce up to 85 kboe/d through 18 underwater wells. The development activities progressed and in 2017 production wells planned were drilled and linked to the production facility achieving the planned peak production of 45 kbbl/d one year earlier than scheduled.
The project includes the transportation of non-associated gas to the onshore facilities to be processed and linked to Ghana's national grid, supplying approximately 180 mmcf/d. Start-up is expected by mid-2018.
The OCTP project is the only non-associated gas development project in deep water entirely dedicated to the domestic market in Sub-Saharan Africa. This project will ensure at least 15 years of reliable gas supply with an affordable price, significantly supporting the access to energy and economic development of the country.
The project has been developed in compliance with the highest environmental requirements, zero gas flaring and produced water re-injection, including the Performance Standards on Environmental and Social Sustainability of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), which is part of the World Bank Group.
Eni progressed its commitment to support local communities in the western region of the country, nearby the operated OCTP project. In particular, the ongoing initiatives concerned:
- support for food needs, including training initiatives and specific projects aimed at restoring and increasing agro-zootechnical production and fishing activities;
- economic programs for a diversification purpose with initiatives to promote micro-entrepreneurial activities and professional training programs;
- improved access to drinking water and waste management;
- the renovation of the primary school infrastructure in Sanzule. Healthcare initiatives continue to increase access to mother and child health services.
Projects progressed to develop renewables power plant, particularly the photovoltaic plant.
