Nigerian Aveon wins sub-contract

NIGERIAN company Aveon Offshore has secured a sub-contract from FMC Technologies for the fabrication of subsea structures for the Egina field, offshore Nigeria.

The agreement comes as FMC was awarded the engineering procurement construction and commissioning contract for the field by Total mid-way through last year.

Aveon will supply over 4500 tonnes of subsea structures to the field, which it will construct in its 240,000sq.m fabrication yard in Rumuolumeni, near Port Harcourt.

The company expects the project to generate over 1 million productive man-hours of work, and significantly expand its presence and reputation as a dependable local partner in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.

The company hopes to have the structures on the way to the field by the second half of 2015.
