Baker Hughes, a GE company, said Wednesday it has secured a contract from Nigeria LNG, the operator of the giant Bonny export plant.

Under the deal, BHGE will provide asset performance management software services to reduce unplanned outages and trips for Nigeria LNG’s trains.

Using APM software, BHGE developed an outcome-based solution with a digital trip reduction program and has committed to a reduction of 20 percent of trips on the LNG trains and related balance of plant (BoP) within three years, the company said in the statement.

BHGE will supply the bundle of its software services, powered by GE’s Predix, the platform for the industrial internet, in a multi-year agreement that includes support from GE Power Services and GE Digital.

The company is also the main contractor of the project’s LNG trains, power generation and electrical motors units and has had a contractual service agreement in place with NLNG since 2003.

This new deal marks the first APM solution sold and executed both in the LNG market and in Sub-Saharan Africa by BHGE, the statement reads.

The Bonny Island facility consists of six trains in operation with a total capacity of some 22 mtpa of LNG.

Nigeria LNG is a joint venture compromised of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC (49%), Shell (25.6%), Total (15%), and Eni (10.4%).

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
