Aveon to supply subsea components for Bonga NW

Offshore staff

LAGOS, Nigeria – FMC Technologies has subcontracted Aveon Offshore to fabricate components for the subsea production system for Shell’s Bonga North West project offshore Nigeria.

Aveon’s $30 million-plus contract involves structural steel procurement, fabrication, and load-out of around 1,000 tons of subsea structures, including two four-slot production manifolds with associated suction piles, well jumpers, tubing head frames, christmas tree ROV panels, and control system elements.

The company, formerly known as Grinaker-LTA Construction Nigeria, will execute this program at its 240,000-sq m (2.58-million sq ft) fabrication yard in Rumuolumeni, near Port Harcourt, generating more than 200,000 man-hours of work.

Load-out and sail-away of the manifolds for offshore installation is scheduled for March 2013.

To fulfil some of the project requirements, Aveon has acquired equipment including a horizontal boring machine, funded by Shell as part of its Nigerian Content development initiative.
