TotalEnergies has brought on stream its long-delayed Ikike gas field offshore Nigeria.

Located 20 kilometres off the coast in a water depth of about 20 metres, Ikike has been developed via a fixed platform tied back to the French supermajor's Amenam facilities via a 14-kilometre multi-phase pipeline.

Originally, the Ikike field was due on stream in 2016 but a host of political, legal and financial issues saw the final investment decision delayed to January 2019, while the Covid-19 pandemic adversely impacted the schedule.
