There is progress with the produced water handling system, as part of the last phase of the CPF debottlenecking exercise.
GAS LIFT OPERATIONS

Both the Umugini Pipeline Infrastructures Limited (“UPIL”) and the Nigerian Agip Oil Company Limited (“NAOC”) export lines suffered several downtimes resulting from pipeline sabotages and Tank tops during the period under review. However, the crude shipping activities was sustained during the period under review.
