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.
