Offshore staff

PORT HARCOURT, NigeriaEiffel Nigeria has contracted AVEON Offshore (formerly GRINAKER-LTA Construction Nigeria) to fabricate components for the living quarters platform for the shallow water OFON Phase II project.

Operator Total Exploration & Production Nigeria had earlier the Engineering Procurement Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) contract for this platform to EIFFAGE Construction Metallique/Eiffel Nigeria.

The scope of AVEON’s program, valued at more than $50 million, is fabrication and load-out of more than 3,000 tons of structures including the OFQ jacket, piles, utility deck and helideck.

Construction will be performed at AVEON’s 240,000-sq m (2.6 million-sq ft) yard in Rumuolumeni near Port Harcourt, generating more than 600,000 man-hours of work.

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

This project should also ensure a high level of activity at the yard during 2012 and into 2013.
