Total's Nigerian operating subsidiary, Elf Petroleum Nigeria Ltd., encountered hydrocarbons in the area west of the Usan field discovery in deepwater Oil Prospecting License (OPL) 222, offshore southeastern Nigeria. The Usan 6 appraisal well is 110 km offshore and 4 km south of the Usan-5 well in 850 m of water. It is the fifth successful appraisal well on the Usan field discovered in 2002.

During the well test, Usan 6 flowed 5,800 b/d under restricted flow conditions. The well confirms the high potential of the Usan structure on an extension of the accumulation west of Usan 1 to 4 wells and south of Usan 5.

Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. (NNPC) is concessionaire for OPL 222 under a production sharing contract operated by Elf Petroleum Nigeria Ltd. 20%, in partnership with Chevron Petroleum Nigeria Ltd. 30%, Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria (Offshore East) Ltd. 30%, and Nexen Petroleum Nigeria Ltd. 20%.
