The Tilenga Project is planned to develop nine (9) fields, namely; Jobi-Rii, Ngiri, Gunya, Kasamene, Wahrindi, Kigogole, Nsoga, Ngege, and Ngara. The Project will produce 190,000 Barrels of Oil per day during peak production. The crude will be treated at a Central Processing Facility (CPF) located in the northern edge of Lake Albert.
Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) for the Project was completed in May 2018. The Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) was completed, and certificate issued by the National Environment Management Authority in April 2019.
Award of the Tilenga Project contracts including Engineering Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contracts and drilling are awaiting FID. Once the FID is taken, drilling of development wells and construction of production facilities including the CPF, infield and feeder pipelines will commence.
