The Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo) pioneered Nigeria's deep-water oil and gas production at the Bonga field, a project that increased Nigeria's oil capacity by 10% when output began in 2005.At full output, Bonga has the potential to add more than 200,000 barrels of crude oil and 150 million standard cubic feet of gas to Nigeria's daily production.
SNEPCo started oil production from the first well at the Bonga North West deep-water development on August 5, 2014. Read about First Oil produced from SNEPCo-Operated Bonga North West deep water project
A deep-water project off Nigeria’s coast has brought much-needed jobs, training and business for local people. The Bonga project helped create the first generation of Nigerian oil and gas engineers with deep water experience and stimulated the growth of support industries. Watch Joey Uyanwuye, Project Manager for Bonga North West, explain more about the project.
