Aveon Offshore Limited, a wholly Nigerian owned engineering and fabrication services company, has 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 five manifolds and modules with associated suction piles, various Xmas tree frame elements and control system foundations, according to a report on Web wire last Friday.
The project would be executed by Aveon Offshore at its 240,000 Square metre fabrication yard in Rumuolumeni, near Port Harcourt and would generate over 200,000 productive man-hours of work.
A dedicated 2,000 m2 high-bay workshop would be added to the yard’s existing infrastructure in order to accommodate the workload generated by the project. The planned Load-out and Sail-away of the manifolds and modules for offshore installation is between August and October 2014.
The project would 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 and gas industry.
