Contract win in Nigeria


Project Development International (PDi) has secured a £1.5million contract with Nigerian oil service company Marine Platforms Limited (MPL), to provide technical support to the Chevron Agbami Phase 3 transport, installation and pre-commissioning project.

Due for completion in early Q2 2016, MPL has appointed PDi to support with onshore and offshore installation engineering activities in the Agbami Field, Nigeria’s largest deepwater development, located in central Niger Delta, west coast of Nigeria.

Commenting on the project, Mark Gillespie, managing director at PDi said: “On this project PDi will provide a dedicated project engineering team in MPL’s office in Lagos who will work on a rotational basis with the indigenous MPL engineering team and be supported by project management and discipline engineering teams in the UK. The Lagos team will include individuals with Structural Engineering and Installation Analysis capability.”

Taofik Adegbite, CEO AT MPL added: “We have established a strong working relationship with PDi and value the dedicated teams, engineering support and track record here in Nigeria. At MPL we adhere to the highest standards of professionalism and strive to exceed the expectations of our clients through integrity, maintaining a very strict safety culture and quality service delivery, standards we know are shared with the team at PDi.”

MPL has chartered the Polar Onyx and hired other project equipment to execute the offshore installation activities, with PDi providing the onshore and offshore installation engineering support.
