Egina Project wins ‘Project of the Year’ award in France

Nigeria has been honoured in France for its floating facility, which is expected to add 200,000 barrels of oil per day to the country’s daily production. The facility built by Samsung Heavy Industries Nigeria (SHIN) bagged the ‘Project of the Year’ award on Monday at the Africa Assembly, organised by the Oil and Gas Council.


Along with its client, Total, the country bagged the 2018 ‘Breakthrough Deal of the Year’ and the 2019 ‘Project of the Year’ for the Egina Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FSPO) unit built for Nigeria’s Egina oil field. It is one of the many awards attracted by the Egina field operated by Total, which continues to demonstrate a relentless commitment to develop local expertise.


With 246 participating organisations from 41 countries, the award is an initiative that celebrates groundbreaking achievements, as well as the best performing companies and executives who have pioneered new frontiers, inspired others through their activities and achieved growth in Africa.
