LONDON -- The Mobile Offshore Production Unit (MOPU) Veer Prem is en route to the Ebok field, offshore Nigeria.
The former jackup was converted to an MOPU by removing the drilling package and replacing it with a newly fabricated processing module. The facility has an initial production capacity of 50,000 b/d of oil, water injection capacity of 25,000 b/d, and gas lift/injection capacity of 9/6 MMcf/d. Crude oil produced and processed at the MOPU will be stored on an FSO, which will accommodate regular sales offtake by tankers.
Both the MOPU and FSO are expected to arrive next month. Production is expected by year end.
