TotalEnergies has pledged $6bn (€5.47bn) of investment to boost its oil and gas operations in Nigeria over the coming years.

The company plans to make investments in offshore oil projects and gas production assets across all terrain.

TotalEnergies’ reaffirmation of its long-term partnership with the country was made by its chairman and CEO Patrick Pouyanné during a meeting with Nigeria President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Abuja.

Pouyanné also discussed with Tinubu ways to improve the investment climate and security of operations, TotalEnergies’ future investment programme in the country, and the French company’s efforts to support Nigeria’s plan to reduce carbon emissions.

The company has also signed a cooperation agreement with Nigeria’s state oil company, NNPC, to undertake methane detection and measurement campaigns.

As part of this agreement, the parties will make use of advanced drone-based AUSEA technology at oil and gas facilities in Nigeria.
