OML 42 has a total of 7 flow stations with a combined capacity of 345,000 barrels of liquid per day. As at Q1, 2018, the Batan, Jones Creek and Odidi Flow Stations are operational, while Egwa will be re-opened in late-2018. The liquids are transported to the Forcados Export Terminal via the Trans-Forcados Pipeline (TFP).
Frequent failures of TFP due to age, crude theft and sabotage have made dependence on it for crude transport uneconomic, onerous and inefficient. In response to this, the OML 42 JV has developed an alternative evacuation route for its crude via barging to the Ugo Ocha FSO terminal. Implementing this alternative has necessitated introducing oil and water treatment in the field to meet export crude quality requirements and environmental standards for water disposal. The alternative evacuation solution for Odidi and Jones Creek will go live at the end April 2018.
A Central Processing Facility (CPF) for gas in Odidi is also currently being revamped to deliver up to 80 MMcf/d to Escravos-Lagos Pipeline System (ELPS) by the 4th quarter of 2018.
