Agbami is Nigeria's largest deepwater development, a light, sweet crude oil produced 70 miles offshore. Loading is accomplished via a single buoy mooring (SBM) located 1.2 miles from the Agbami floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. With an overall storage capacity of 2.15 million barrels the Agbami FPSO is one of the largest facilities of this type ever constructed.

Production began in 2008 and quickly ramped up to 230,000 barrels per day, with peak production expected in 2010. Agbami's location allows for co-load opportunities with heavier West African grades.

Agbami has very low levels of contaminants such as vanadium, nickel, and iron. The acid number is also low (less than 0.05 mg KOH/g).
