Penspen, a leading global provider of engineering and project management services to the energy industry, and Nigerian engineering firm Crestech, have jointly won a major contract for four gas projects in the Niger Delta.
This is the largest contract to date signed by the duo after forming a strategic alliance in November 2016.
The project management consultancy services contract was awarded by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) across four gas projects in the Niger Delta region.
The scope of services under the project management consultancy (PMC) contract includes the following four identified critical gas development projects; Oil Mining Lease (OMLs) 24 and 18 Joint Development, OMLs 26,30,32,42 and Makaraba Clusters Development, OML 13 Cluster Development, OML 35/62 Okpokunou / Tuomo West Cluster Development.
The scope of work covers project management services, as well as personnel support, throughout the duration of the planned gas development, initially expected to be completed by 2020, it stated.
On the contract win, Penspen CEO Peter O’Sullivan said: “Our partnership with Crestech allows us to deliver the full range of work required by NNPC in Nigeria and this highlights a positive step in our relationship and growth in the region.”
“The strategic alliance allows the best of both companies to be brought together to deliver positive results for clients,” he noted.
“The seven gas projects will help NNPC to achieve its overall gas supply goals to support Nigeria’s National Gas Policy (NGP) 2017. We look forward to working with NNPC and Crestech over the next four years,” he added.
Crestech Engineering’s Managing Director Gbola Sobande said the company was excited to play such a key role in moving Nigeria closer to its gas development goals.
“Jointly delivering a project of great significance to Nigeria, along with Penspen, will help strengthen the relationship between the two partners, while also further solidifying Crestech’s position as a leading indigenous oil and gas engineering company that is recognised across Nigeria,” he noted.
“The partnership allows Penspen and Crestech to provide engineering, project management and asset integrity services for oil, gas and energy assets in Nigeria. This project will combine Penspen’s global expertise with Crestech’s strong domestic reputation,” he added.
A major global player, Penspen has been providing engineering, project management, asset management and integrity services to the oil and gas industry worldwide for over 60 years.
Originally founded in the UK in 1954 as Spencer & Partners, the company has now grown to include over 1,000 engineers with major offices in London, Aberdeen, Houston, Abu Dhabi, and Bangkok
