Accolades as Indigenous Company, Nigerdock Plc Builds First-ever Well Head Platforms in Nigeria

By on March 19, 2012

An indigenous company, Nigerdock Nigeria Plc recently delivered three wellhead platforms built in Nigeria at its Snake Island facility to Mobil Nigeria Plc.

The wellheads were the first ever to be designed and fabricated wholly in Nigeria.

The company received financing from Fidelity Bank.

The Managing Director of Fidelity Bank, Mr. Reginald Ihejiahi speaking at the event testified to the bank’s willingness to enable such opportunities for Nigerians. He said the project catered for 2,000 jobs.

He added, “At Fidelity Bank, we are not focusing on short term financing. This is a project that will be here for a long time. If you look at what I happening here today, this is one of the biggest project not only in the country, but in the sub-Saharan industry.”

The President, ExxonMobil Production Company, Rich Kruger, said: “Today, we’re commemorating the sail away of two of three wellhead platforms developed under our Satellite Field Development Project.

“This occasion not only marks the completion of the first phase of the project but also represents the first time two platforms have been developed completely in Nigeria. This is a significant contribution to the national content initiatives supported by both the Nigerian Government and our ExxonMobil affiliates here in Nigeria.

“The project involves the engineering, fabrication and installation of one wellhead platform in each of these fields. It also includes production gathering pipelines and tie-ins to existing production facilities, as well as the drilling of future wells.

“I want to stress that underlining this project is a firm commitment to safety by all parties involved. On this project, over 4.3 million man hours have been invested with no lost time injuries.

At ExxonMobil, the health and well-being of our employees, contractors and the communities in which we operate is more than merely a priority; it is a core value of our corporation. Our goal is an incident-free workplace with a clear and simple objective: nobody gets hurt.”
