Citing the recent lease renewal, the MD restated SNEPCo’s commitment to growing their assets, willingness to deliver big-ticket projects and exploit near-term opportunities to continually grow output volumes by working closely with NUIMS.

SNEPCo recently surpassed the one billion barrels of crude oil production milestone and is currently outperforming its production target for 2023 raising daily production output from approximately 90,000 BPD to 131,000 BPD.

Improvements were recorded from the onshore and swamp assets following the launch of the industry-wide security architecture.

Aiboni stated further that there is no reason Nigeria cannot grow its crude oil production output to four million barrels per day, leveraging on the vast array of prolific assets, especially in the deep water space.

Aiboni expressed her appreciation to the leadership of NUIMS for the level of collaboration geared towards maximizing the potential of the deepwater assets and delivering key projects to unlock value for stakeholders.
