Nigerian consortium bids to build Ashland FPSO

Dec 18, 1996 01:00 AM

A consortium of two Nigerian firms is bidding to construct a FPSO facility for Ashland Oil Company. The firms are Nigerdock and the National Engineering and Technical Company (NETCO), a joint-venture between state-owned Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and US Bechtel. "We are bidding for the design, procurement, modification and construction of a tanker vessel for a FPSO facility for Ashland Oil," Alex Ogedegbe, managing director of NETCO, said. NETCO and Nigerdock have signed a memorandum of understanding to form a consortium to bid for oil industry contracts. The Nigerian government said in October that contracts in the petroleum sector, would only be awarded to firms registered in the country. NETCO will undertake engineering services for Mobil's Nigerian production unit beginning next year, involving designs for new pipelines, civil and process engineering, to meet Mobil's expansion programmes.
