Fabrication Jobs for Train 7 will be done in Port Harcourt – Nigeria LNG

Managing Director of the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG), Tony Attah says the fabrication aspect of the Train 7 project will be handled by Saipem Contracting Nigeria and Daewoo Nigeria Limited in Port Harcourt.
This effectively puts to rest the controversy surrounding the location of the fabrication aspect of the project, which many speculated would be exported to Lagos.

Attah said this today when he led a delegation of the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor, Saipem, Chiyoda and Daewoo Joint Venture (SCD JV) partners on a visit the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, in Government House, Port Harcourt.

“Your Excellency, let me formally introduce the Train 7 project to you. The Train 7 project will create 12,000 jobs and will also boost the economy of the host communities.”

“The 12,000 jobs will all be here in Rivers State and the prefabrication jobs will be done here at Rumuolumeni and Abam by Saipem and Daewoo.”

Saipem Contracting Nigeria has a fabrication yard at Rumuolumeni in Obio/Akpor LGA while Daewoo Nigeria Limited has a logistics facility at Abam in Okrika LGA, both in Rivers State.

The Nigeria LNG boss was accompanied on the visit by the Managing Director of Daewoo Nigeria Limited, Yeongsoep Jung, and the acting Managing Director of Saipem Contracting Nigeria, Paviani Walker, General Manager, External Relations of Nigeria LNG, Eyono Fatayi-Williams, and Manager, Community Relations, Godson Dienye.

He praised the Rivers State Governor for his support for the company’s initiatives, especially, creating the conducive environment for the takeoff of the Train 7 project, adding that the project will boost the company’s plant capacity to 30 metric tonnes per annum.

On their part, Yeongsoep Jung and Paviani Walker pledged their commitment to ensuring local content in compliance with extant local content laws in the country.
