LONDON -- Mobil Producing Nigeria (MPN), part of ExxonMobil, has awarded a five-year contract to a consortium of AMEC, JAGAL, and NETCO for the upgrade and expansion of offshore and onshore oil and gas production facilities in southeast Nigeria.

The $220-million engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCm) program is an arrangement comprising multiple contracts that will be implemented in Nigeria and will exceed the Nigerian Content Directive, according to AMEC.

The consortium will provide project management, project services, and engineering design for the program. AMEC will provide project management and procurements skills, NETCO will provide engineering skills, and JAGAL will provide logistics and support services.

"We are naturally very pleased that MPN has selected the AMEC-JAGAL-NETCO consortium for this contract, which forms an important part of our plans in Nigeria and reinforces our capability in brownfield projects," says Neil Bruce, COO of AMEC's natural resources business. "In keeping with our policy of developing local resources, the work will be undertaken in-country providing job and training opportunities and delivering maximum value for MPN and Nigeria."
