Akpo fields Discovered in , the Akpo field is located in ultra deepwater of Nigeria. Field Development Beginning in , the Akpo field development project includes 44 wells—22 production wells, 20 water injection wells and two gas injection—of which 22 have already been drilled, tied-back to an FPSO. The company performed a series of pre-commissioning services on the field's flowlines and umbilicals. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The subsea infrastructure consists of kilometers of a complex

Although the FPSO is similar to other existing ones in terms of size, it is unique, in some particular technical details and principals which have been incorporated in the design, such as:. Because of these particular characteristics, it was possible to start-up the AKPO field in a limited time frame ahead of schedule and without any major problems.

Akpo is a standalone development based on a spread moored Floating Production Storage and Offloading FPSO moored in m water depth with a storage capacity of 2 million barrels of condensate. The stabilized condensate is exported via offloading lines and a deep water buoy located 2 km away from the FPSO. The Akpo development involves five reservoirs, deposited in a complex channels and lobe arrangement, situated at depth ranging from mSS to mSS.

The reservoir fluid is a critical fluid, which implies that the fluid type is dependent on pressure, temperature and depth. Pressure maintenance in the reservoirs is necessary, with water injection in 4 of the reservoirs and gas injection in one. The development includes 44 subsea wells 22 production, 20 water injection and 2 gas injection drilled in clustered subsea architecture. For the initial production start-up, around half of these wells are required to be online for production and reservoir pressure maintenance purposes.
