Aveon Offshore Building Key Components for Exxon’s Nigerian Oil Field
AVEON Offshore Limited, a wholly Nigerian owned engineering and fabrication services company, has recently secured a contract from Cameron Offshore Systems Nigeria Limited for the fabrication of some major components of the Subsea Systems for the Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited (EEPNL) Erha North Phase 2 Project.
EEPNL had earlier awarded an Engineering Procurement Construction contract for the Erha North Phase 2 Subsea Systems to Cameron Offshore Systems Nigeria Limited.
The AVEON Offshore contract consists of the fabrication and load-out of approximately 1,000 tons of subsea structures including 5 manifolds and modules with associated suction piles, various Xmas tree frame elements and control system foundations.
The project will be executed by AVEON Offshore at its 240,000 Sq m fabrication yard in Rumuolumeni near Port Harcourt and will generate over 200,000 productive man-hours of work. In order to accommodate the workload generated by the project, a dedicated 2,000 m2 high-bay workshop will be added to the yard’s existing infrastructure. The planned Load-out and Sail-away of the manifolds and modules for offshore installation is between August and October 2014.
This project will also ensure a high level of activity through 2013 and well into 2014, thus helping Aveon Offshore fulfill a strategic milestone in the development of the company as a sustainable Nigerian owned fabrication yard serving the Oil & Gas industry.
