Nigeria Saipem Wins Otumara-Saghara-Escravos Gas Pipeline Contract from Shell

 

In Nigeria, Saipem has been awarded the contract for the Otumara-Saghara-Escravos gas pipeline by Shell Petroleum Development, as part of Shell’s program to reduce gas flaring in the Country.

The 42-kilometre-long pipeline, of various sizes ranging from 2 to 12 inch, and passing through a swampy terrain with a major river crossing, will collect about 30 million cubic feet a day of processed associated gas from the Otumara and Saghara fields in the western Niger Delta and send it through the Escravos-Lagos system to the domestic market, helping to reduce flaring, or the burning of gas produced alongside oil.

The project will be completed in 18 months and will be fully executed in Nigeria, including Project Management and Procurement activities; also, up to 90% of personnel deployed will be Nigerian nationals, confirming Saipem’s well-established local content commitment to the country.

Furthermore, Saipem has agreed increases in the scope of its work on existing onshore contracts in Nigeria.

Saipem is organised into two Business Units: Engineering & Construction and Drilling, with a strong bias towards oil & gas related activities in remote areas and deepwater. Saipem is a leader in the provision of engineering, procurement, project management and construction services with distinctive capabilities in the design and execution of large-scale offshore and onshore projects, and technological competences such as gas monetisation and heavy oil exploitation.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
