Total To Approve Nigeria’s Ikike Project In Coming Months

French oil and energy group Total will formally approve a decision to proceed with the Ikike project in Nigeria in the coming months, CEO Patrick Pouyanne said.

“There is a huge potential in Nigeria. It is probably the most prolific country in West Africa in terms of oil and gas, and it is time to launch new projects and we are working on many of them,” Pouyanne told journalists on Jan. 21.

Pouyanne was speaking on the sidelines of a meeting of Nigerian and French businesses in Paris.

The Ikike Field is located in OML 99 offshore Nigeria.
