Africa: Nigeria, Sao Tome & Principe and Total sign oil Production Sharing Contract

Nigeria, Sao Tome and Principe and Total SA signed an oil production sharing contract on Thursday, according to a joint statement.

“Nigeria and Sao Tome and Principe through their joint oil zone organization have signed a production sharing contract with Total E&P (Exploration and Production) Nigeria Limited that will prospect for oil in three blocks,” the statement said.

Nicholas Terraz, the managing director of Total E&P, said the company would take on 100 percent of the financing, but may seek partners as discoveries are made.

The estimated reserves of the blocks – 7, 8 and 11 – were not disclosed, but Total will be the first to do seismic studies, the statement said.
