Haihao Group pays attention to the safety of large ship pipeline systems
As an expert in the field of pipeline systems, Haihao Group understands the importance and potential risks of ship pipeline systems very well. The recent leakage accident of Egina FPSO in Nigeria reminds us once again that we must always pay attention to the safety hazards of the pipeline system.
In recent news, the Nigerian Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA) reported a leak incident on November 15th involving the Egina FPSO, resulting in the discharge of 3,000 barrels of crude oil. The FPSO, operated by TotalEnergies, is situated 130 kilometers off the Atlantic coastline and has a daily production capacity of 200,000 barrels, with a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels.
As the investigation unfolds, potential causes of the FPSO leak are under scrutiny. The Joint Investigation Visit (JIV) report estimates the leaked quantity at 3,000 barrels. Idris Musa, the Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of NOSDRA, emphasized the substantial impact of the incident. The response strategy, including the deployment of experienced personnel and the activation of the National Oil Spill Contingency Plan (NOSCP), has been put into action to mitigate the effects of this significant oil spill.
While the exact causes of the FPSO leak are yet to be determined, potential factors such as equipment failure, corrosion, or operational lapses are common culprits in offshore incidents. The complexity of marine operations requires rigorous inspection, maintenance, and adherence to stringent safety protocols to prevent leaks and minimize environmental impact.
