Successful sail away of the Erha……
Aveon Offshore limited wishes to announce that it has successfully completed fabrication, supported Manifold/Suction Pile testing and loaded out these components in respect of the Erha North Phase 2 project.
The load out and sail away of the 5 suction piles, production and water- injection manifolds and Riser Base Lift Module with Choke Loop Bridge occurred in four batches between October 2014 and March 2015 with the final batch of 5 Mudmats with Foundation Base and 2 Production Manifolds with Pigging Loop sailing away on the 5th of April, 2015.
Other works such as the fabrication of the Xtree elements are currently ongoing and delivery is on schedule.
AVEON Offshore Limited, a fully Nigerian owned engineering and fabrication services company was awarded the contract by OneSubea Offshore Systems Nigeria Limited for the fabrication and load-out of approximately 1,200 tons of subsea structures including 5 manifolds and modules with associated suction piles, various Xmas tree frame elements and control system foundations for the Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited (EEPNL) Erha North Phase 2 Project in 2013.
In order to accommodate the workload generated by the project, a dedicated 2,000 m2 high-bay workshop was added to the yard’s existing infrastructure.
For achieving this feat, AVEON has received high commendation from Oddvar Bryne, Project Director OneSubsea offshore systems Nigeria Limited who stated thus:
“A day to remember, the total Manifold scope complete and last ENP2 manifold loaded onto the barge. An overall manifold scope delivered successfully and I do believe one of the most successful projects delivered from Aveon ever. I will never forget this team ever and you will be remembered in the OneSubsea/Cameron System for sure for an outstanding performance. Well done”
The project was executed by AVEON Offshore at its 280,000 Sqm fabrication yard in Rumuolumeni near Port Harcourt and generated over 550,000 productive man-hours of over 20 months.
Aveon wishes to thank the management of OSS and Esso for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this project which is a testimony of the success of the local content act.
