Foreword For Nigerian Content, Seeing is Believing T

he Chinese adage, which says that a picture is worth more a thousand words, is perhaps an apt way to describe this publication by the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, titled Champions of Nigerian Content. The Board commissioned this special publication to showcase the growth in capacity of service companies and ancillary businesses since the introduction of the Nigerian Content Policy in 2005 and signing of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Bill into law in April 2010. This is ahead of the Board's publication of a comprehensive directory in the NOGIC Joint Qualification System which will be launched in the first quarter of 2011with accurate Nigerian Content capacity of all companies operating in the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry.

The introduction of the Nigerian Content policy and attendant domiciliation guidelines by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation in 2004 laid the foundation for the development of in-country capacity to perform increased work scopes in the country. It also led to the birth and growth of many service providers and increased patronage of the industry from a dismal 5 per cent in 2004 to 35 per cent in 2010. This has translated to increased Gross Domestic Product, employment of thousands of Nigerians in the oil and gas service end of the industry and infrastructural development. Today, the structured implementation of the NOGICD Act, which spelt out specified domiciliation targets has upped the ante towards retaining a reasonable quantum of industry spend in Nigeria. In line with Federal Government's push to bring Nigerians' jobs back for Nigerians, the implementation of the NOGICD Act by the Board is centered on domiciliation of manufacturing of goods and services, promoting equipment ownership, giving first consideration to Nigerian indigenous service companies, ensuring that Nigerian Content targets are met for all projects and operations and creating training & employment opportunities for indigenes. The implementation is also focused on deploying the Nigerian Content Development Fund for

targeted capacity building, ensuring that local capacity investments have work to amortize investments and drawing on the power of the Honourable Minister to make regulations requiring operators to participate in establishing facilities needed to meet targets. By encouraging the establishment of yards and facilities in Nigeria, the implementation of the NOGICD Act will create employment for more Nigerians, link the industry with the wider Nigerian economy, increase the nation's Gross Domestic Product and create continued access to the oil fields especially when indigenes of the oil producing areas are integrated into the mainstream of the industry. Many investors took advantage of the NC Policy and its guidelines to set up facilities in the country and Board has continued to receive enquiries from investors both within and outside the country who want to latch on the opportunities provided by the NOGICD Act to set up facilities to do work in the industry. But despite all the growth recorded in the past six years and exciting interests being shown by investors under the law, some stakeholders, including top brass of the industry still hold on to the unfortunate mindset that Nigerians are incapable of owning and operating equipment or facility critical to oil and gas operations. This mindset must change for the industry to start impacting on the wider economy. The few companies showcased here demonstrated that much more can be done in Nigeria than we are often made to believe. Champions of Nigerian Content highlighted the jobs done by the featured companies, their expansion plans to take advantage of opportunities provided by the Act and how they are surmounting myriad of challenges facing their operations. The expectation is that operators in the industry and decision makers will at least glean through the pages and see the capacities that reside with the companies operating and begin to put work in their facilities. The Board also hopes that investors and multinational service companies across the world will look through this publication and identify local companies they can partner with in their bid to invest and operate in the Nigerian market.

This edition, which is the first since President Goodluck Jonathan signed the Nigerian Content Act into law on April 22, 2010, features about 40 companies, operating in different sub-sectors of the service industry who opened their doors to the Board while on this project. The Board will continue to carry out enlightenment programmes both within and outside the country in its bid to showcase existing capacities, attract the establishment of new facilities to the country and ensure the placement of jobs in the facilities so as to ensure return on investment. It is our expectation that you find the publication interesting and play your role in supporting the implementation of the NOGICD Act.

Introduction The clamour for Nigerian Content Development And implementation is a result of perceived marginalization of indigenous personnel, companies and products in the operations of the oil and gas industry in the country. While operators – the international oil companies operating joint ventures, petroleum sharing contracts and other agreements guiding operations in the upstream plead limited incountry capacity, hence the award of contracts to international service providers, indigenous services providers beg to disagree.

In the face of mounting capital flight, job losses and a seeming stunted growth in development of in-country capacity, last year, government gave added impetus to implementation of Nigerian Content policy through the instrumentality of an enabling law, as well as the establishment of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board. Since its establishment, the Board has initiated a robust initiative to ascertain actual level of installed in-country capacity, assist prospective investors ready and willing to grow indigenous capacity, identify critical areas where in-country capacity development needs attention and solicit investment, as well as resolve complaints of perceived marginalization, among others. The initiative to compile ‘Champions of Nigerian Content’ is part of the Board’s robust effort to identify and showcase installed in-country capacity. It is also an effort to correct the erroneous impression that there is limited incountry capacity. ‘Champions of Nigerian Content’ is an astounding revelation of installed in-country capacity – with indications that given the right encouragement, a Floating Production Storage and Offloading, FPSO vessel can be designed, constructed and integrated in Nigeria within the next 5 years or less. It is on record that some indigenous service

providers have engaged in major turn key projects including development of some of the world’s largest Single Buoy Mooring, SBM including that of Bonga, Agbami and Ehra as well as engineering design, fabrication and construction of about 70 per cent of the topsides of an FPSO vessel currently being integrated overseas. The effort to accomplish 100 per cent integration of an FPSO vessel in-country may not happen anytime soon owing to the dearth of projects that has bedeviled the local industry in the last 4 years. As we showcase these ‘Champions of Nigerian Content’ we implore you to note that there are indeed other budding and no less important ‘Champions’ whose existence and accomplishments we could not capture due to space and time constraint. However, a conscious effort would be made to capture and showcase their efforts and accomplishments when this edition comes up for review.

EPCI Contractors E

PCI - Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation. This is a common form of contracting arrangement within Offshore construction. Under an EPCI contract, the contractor will design the structure(s), procure the necessary materials, undertake construction and transportation, and set it up at the offshore site. The contractor does this either through own labour or by subcontracting part of the work. The contractor carries the project risk for schedule as well as budget in return for a fixed price, called Lump sum or LSTK depending on the agreed scope of work.

In EPCI contracts, the contractor rarely carries the project risk unconditionally. Rather, contractor and customer have detailed discussions on the division of the risk. Risk of delays and cost overruns due to lacking Weather windows is an example of a typical risk that may be born by the customer rather than the contractor.

est Africa's leading industrial Corporation focused on oil and gas construction and major marine services offshore and pressure vessel fabrication, ship building and repair, industrial training and specialized oil and gas and specialized maritime support. It is strategically located on Snake Island Integrated Freezone, an impressive industrial free zone facility and port development on an island in the coastal water ways of Lagos, with immediate access to the open seas. Nigerdock is organised into four main divisions including Offshore Fabrication, Pressure Vessels, Shipyard and the Training Centre. Each one of these divisions is a standalone unit headed by a General Manager reporting to the Managing Director. Nigerdock has a Quality Management System that has been assessed and certified as meeting the requirement of ISO 9001:2000 UKAS standards. Furthermore, Nigerdock is ASME U & R stamp certified for the fabrication of Pressure Vessels, the only company in West Africa with this distinctive accreditation. Nigerdock Senior and Executive Management are fully committed to the highest safety standards in the industry and have defined and maintained Health, Safety and Environment Manuals, Policies and Procedures for all of their operations. The company's workforce are consistently trained and re-trained in the safe working practices of their individual fields. The Nigerdock Training Centre is a world-class training facility focused on the areas of Welding, Pipefitting, Plating and Machining, Rigging, Safety, Quality and First Aid. It

has the ability to train and test Welders in SMAW, MMAW, FCAW and TIG processes, in all positions and to any Client's requirements whilst certifying to Lloyds, ABS and DNV standards. Nigerdock has an aggressive investment programme into new plant, equipment and technologies. It is also committed to the training of its workforce and the constant improvement of its systems and procedures. The development of this great facility is consistent with the government's Nigerian Content initiative. The management team at Nigerdock is totally committed to achieving the highest levels of success in the areas of quality, delivery and value in the oil and gas and maritime industries.

Operations Nigerdock is operating within the Snake Island Integrated Free Zone ("SIIFZ"), under the direct supervision and monitoring of the Nigerian Export Processing Zones Authority ("NEPZA"), the Nigeria Ports Authority ("NPA"), Nigeria Customs Services, the Nigerian Immigration Service and the Nigeria Police. The activities of these various government agencies in the Free Zone are to ensure due compliance and that appropriate security is maintained. SIIFZ also operate in compliance with International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) as issued by the Presidential Implementation Committee on Maritime Safety and Security ("PICOMSS"). Pre-Privatisation Nigerdock was originally owned by the Federal government of Nigeria, however, as at the time of privatization, Nigerdock, as a Government parastatal, had the following problems:

Low capital base compounded with operational losses; (b) Inadequate long-term planning; Poor cash management leading to liqUidity problem; (d) Failed marketing of its services and products; Weak internal control systems in operations, accounting, marketing and administrative functions; in short it appeared there was no effective operational code installed. Employee remuneration was not competitive and this affected the morale and productivity of staff; Obsolete machinery/equipments and dilapidated structures. Consequently these problems resulted in the collapse of Nigerdock's operations in March, 2003.

Post Privatisation When the consortium of six banks who financed the acquisition of the Core Investor shares were on the verge of taking over the company for non-payment, Jagal, in agreement with the consortium of banks and GEC, and with the consent and approvals of the BPE and NCP, upon compliance with all due process, paid and secured the release of Nigerdock's shares that were used for the acquisition of the shares. In July, 2004, GSMC with the consent and approval of the BPE and NCP acquired an additional 29% of the remaining shares held by the Federal Government. A share Sale/Purchase Agreement dated 30th July, 2004 was executed between the BPE and GSMC in compliance with due process. The current shareholding in Nigerdock is 80% held by GSMC and 20% by BPE, on behalf of the Federal Government. To effect the rescue and turnaround of Nigerdock, Jagal, as the new majority shareholder in GSMC, Provided working capital with which Nigerdock became


Nigerdock able to recommence its operations; - Settled all outstanding severance benefits; - Invested substantially in the refurbishment of existing equipments and infrastructure; - Acquired new plants; - Restructured and revitalised of the fabrication facility; - Upgraded the shipyard operation; and - Put in place the capacity to provide all logistical support services, as well as the settlement of other outstanding liabilities. These investments have transformed Nigerdock into a world class facility for:- Shipbuilding, ship repair and shipyard services, - Fabrication and construction of offshore and subsea structures and - The provision of logistic supply base services All operations are carried out in full compliance with the mandate of Government and in keeping with the Memorandum and Articles of Association.

Why JAGAL Invested in Nigerdock The investment by Jagal in Nigerdock under privatisation is predicated on its confidence in the assertive assurances of Federal Government implementation of the Nigerian Content Policy, as well as its policy to actively encourage investment into the nation's economy. Jagal also shared the vision of the government in the viability of Nigerdock under private sector participation. However, the present reality is that the Nigerian Content Policy remains yet to be fUlly actualised, resulting in capacity underutilisation of Nigerian fabrication yards, with attendant distressing retrenchment of workers. For example, the work that Nigerdock has been awarded in the last five years is what it has capacity to do in one year. There is an urgent need to redress the situation.

Achievements of Nigerdock Since its privatisation, Nigerdock has successfully achieved the following: Has developed a world class Shipyard capable of meeting the demands of Nigeria's maritime service needs and provides the necessary dry-docking, hull repairs, mechanical and topsides maintainence services. Nigerdock has also for the first time attracted Non-Nigeria vessels calling into its quays for services as it has established its reputation as a leading West African Shipyard. Nigerdock has built highly complex and technical components for deepwater field developments. Among them it has successfully built the four (4) largest Deepwater SPM Buoys for Bonga (Shell), Agbami (Chevron), Erha (Mobil), and most recent, which you have seen here today, the Akpo Buoy for Total. On your tour you would have also noticed 2 other buoys being finished off and ready to go to their location where they will greatly contribute to Nigeria's development. It is also noteworthy that Nigerdock is the first company in Nigeria to export a buoy. This was done for a Total project for a field in Cameroon. Nigerdock has developed the largest specialised Training School in the industry which has trained over 2,500 Nigerian youths in the last five (5) years with the highest levels of certification available in the industry. With this it has become the leading skills provider; Nigerdock has developed substantial in-country capacity for fabrication of decks, platforms, topside modules, subsea structures, and other offshore related infrastructure to globally recognised standards; Nigerdock has achieved an impressive safety record through a stringent implementation of Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) policies and training. Nigerdock operates an ongoing policy of continuous improvement in the provision of staff benefits, welfare and pensions, as well as pursuing community development programmes, including providing school and hospital facilities Nigerdock has become the leading company and champion for the actualisation of the Nigerian Content Policy. As a result Nigerdock is now proudly used as the example for Nigeria's Government departments in their efforts to market the Nation's capability and capacity as a leader across this industry. The transformation of Nigerdock under privatisation has translated into employment opportunities, the acquisition of new skills, and security for the youth of Nigeria. Address & General Enquiries

A Questionnaire from Mount Spiral Nig. Ltd. for Tv/documenary on the Nigeria Content Policy 1. Can you describe the state of Niger Dock installed capacity before the full implementation of the Nigerian Content policy from year 2005? Nigerdock as of 2005 already had the capacity to execute major fabrication jobs inclusive of jackets, modules, subsea equipment, decks, buoys, and platforms. With or without the Nigerian Content Law being passed, our vision was to be a premier yard in the region and our focus has always been to develop into a yard with capability to do process modules, topsides for platforms and FPSO's as well as pressure vessels and more complex fabrication scope. With this in mind we have had an investment profile that focused on training, equipment and project management to ensure we are able to meet industry standards and deliver projects safely, on time and on budget. The NC policy can only give us more opportunities if it is implemented efficiently. Financing is a major concern in the industry. How has Niger Dock been able to surmount this challenge? It's been difficult; Nigerdock has relied on its shareholders for financing. There are concerns that most indigenous operators may not have the requisite installed capacity to make the Nigerian Content law operable. Do you agree with this and what is the current installed engineering and manpower capacity of Niger Dock? Nigerdock can only speak for itself and not the rest of the industry, but as far as capacity and capability, Nigerdock has well over the amount needed to execute major jobs. A true gauge for this question is while many say Nigeria or Nigerdock does not have enough capacity, then why are most fabrication yards including Nigerdock struggling for work? Also of major concern is manpower training. How is Niger Dock dealing with this concern? Are there arrangements in place with foreign entities to facilitate training and possible technology transfer? Nigerdock has the most advanced training school in the country. With highly skilled development classes that offered international certification and development. We have been able to achieve world class results that have been translated into efficiency in our production and also offer training to external clients in the country. Inextricably tied to the success of the Nigerian Content law is the steady flow of jobs in the industry. However, following the delay in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB, there appears to be a dearth of investments in projects. What is Niger Dock doing in the face of dwindling projects from within the industry? We are barely coping with this major downturn. The little jobs available have been bundled as part of larger packages making it harder for indigenous yards to bid the scope. Overall the industry is really struggling, and it is a shame to see a yard such as ours with a lack of continuous work that challenges us as well as gives us confidence to keep investing. Nigeria has all the necessary ingredients to achieve major projects, we just need the support as well as the Jobs domesticated in country. Have you been forced to lay off workers? Yes, we have always been forced to lay of highly trained staff at intervals. This is primarily due to the lack of through put of consistent work in the yard. Overall the fabrication industry has been plagued with insufficient work being

awarded to Nigerian yards and suffers greatly from work scope being executed abroad. Have you resorted to surviving on bailouts from your foreign partners? Nigerdock is a wholly indigenous yard and we do not have any foreign partners in our company. It has been shareholders funds that have been invested and till date there has been no recovery of this massive investment. Are you satisfied with the current configuration of the NCDMB and its operations or are there areas where you perceive they can do better? It is still in its youth, only time will tell how it will impact the industry, we can only continue to champion the Nigerian Content drive and offer the solutions to our clients that we can achieve success in Nigeria. The security concerns in the delta are slowly creeping up again. How do you think this will affect implementation of the Nigerian Content law and how do you propose we tackle it? It is highly unfortunate that the issues in the Delta remain unresolved. It has a negative impact on the entire country, especially when we are asking both Nigerians and

international companies to invest in our economy. We can only support NCD, NNPC, Napims, and the government in pushing through the Nigerian Content Law and hope that it will impact more positively on the region.

SAIPEM SUSTAINABILITY TALENT Saipem's business strategy is based on the creation of long-term value by contributing to the development of local communities where the Company operates. The Company believes that a correct, open and cooperative relationships with all the stakeholders is vital for the success of each complex project Saipem carries out, frequently in very remote and most challenging areas. Saipem has a presence in many locations around the world, operating with a decentralised organisation in order to respond to local needs and sustainability issues. Everywhere it works, the Company plays an active role in the local communities, mainly offering employment opportunities, personnel training, etc.; by working effectively with local suppliers and subcontractors, creating economic and social value, and finally by contributing to infrastructures construction (e.g. access roads, construction camps with all the facilities such as hospitals, power generation, etc.). Saipem's international workforce and breath of internationalism is another facet of sustainability: all personnel is treated with dignity, always respecting their cultural values, local customs and traditions, their diversity and identity. The decentralised Saipem structure, with the strong empowerment of local operations and management, ensures that the 'voice of the customer' is heard throughout the organisation, and that the overall project strategy is aligned with the local project needs. For each project, social, economic and environmental effects are continuously monitored, as well as the satisfaction of customer's requirements.

SUSTAINABILITY ORGANISATION In 2007 the Sustainability Committee was created, joining together all Corporate Vice Presidents (representing Human Resources, QHSE, Procurement, Assets, Corporate Affairs and Administration Finance and Control, Legal Affairs, Risk & Opportunities Knowledge Management), the Chief Operating Officer and the Chief Executive Officer of Saipem sa, thus representing the entire top management. It now includes also Bus Directors. The Committee provides strategic guidance on aligning business strategy with a sustainable approach. Besides, a Sustainability Team has been established, at Corporate level, directly supporting the Committee and coordinating the sustainability activities of all relevant functions and operating units around the world. The Team focuses on reporting, planning, in cooperation with reference people in Corporate functions, assessing

social impacts, performing stakeholder engagement, identifying opportunities and providing advice on global scenarios and trends and on local sustainability initiatives as well. In the relevant geographical areas, a Sustainability Facilitator is responsible for the coordination of sustainability initiatives at local level. The Facilitator promotes and develops initiatives for the increase and improvement of local content, for the

good relationship with the local stakeholders and the sustainability accounting.

SAIPEM PRESENCE IN NIGERIA In Nigeria, Saipem's history and heritage in promoting Nigerian Content within the Group activities materialised by means of the constitution and the due incorporation of two Nigerian subsidiary companies. Saipem Nigeria Ltd (SNL) was the first Saipem Nigerian


Saipem Subsidiary, operating in the country since the mid 60s as an Onshore and Offshore Drilling Contractor. Saipem Contracting Nigeria Ltd (SCNL) is nowadays the main operating Saipem Nigerian Subsidiary Company. Incorporated in Nigeria in 1989, SCNL operates principally as Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractor for the execution of turnkey projects including oil, gas and water pipelines, oil, gas, and industrial plants, infrastructure, fabrication of offshore structures and maintenance services. In 1998, as a further step of Saipem's continuous commitment to the future of its presence and operations in Nigeria, Saipem invested in substantial infrastructure necessary to equip Saipem Contracting Nigeria Ltd and Saipem Nigeria Ltd, with a consolidated hub for their project related operations for the oil and gas sector in Nigeria: the Rumuolumeni Base. The Base is located at Rumuolumeni (a community about 10 km from the town of Port Harcourt). The complex covers an area of more than 700,000 square metres, including the Offices Area (main offices, the engineering building, the clients project office, the Clinic, the recreational facilities, the mess hall, the HSE Training centre, the stores, the maintenance area, etc.) and the Offshore Fabrication Yard with turner, mechanical, heavy equipment, steel carpentry, caravan repairs, blasting, painting, welding and motor vehicle workshops, jetty, electric power plant, and helipad. Saipem offshore drilling operations are carried out by Scarabeo 3 and Scarabeo 7.

THE APPROACHTO SUSTAINABILITY Saipem has been conducting its operations in Nigeria for over 30 years. Saipem strategy has always been based on the 'willingness to stay', with a strong commitment to create an adding value to the Nigerian economy and society. Saipem activities consistently interact with both the physical and social environment. In responding to the environmental challenges in the Niger Delta where it operates as an EPIC contractor in the areas of Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Construction for Oil and Gas companies, Saipem has adopted a holistic approach. In line with the Saipem corporate strategies, Saipem Nigeria strategy focuses on improving the quality of the physical environment while adding value to human capital an approach that has resulted in several initiatives that aim to ensure sustainable physical and social development. Saipem is working on the promotion and development of local content with the creation of long term investments, the creation of partnership with local companies, and the maximization of projects' value executed in country, of local employment, and of procurement executed in country. Saipem core values are employees' skills development and professional growth, their health and safety and the protection of local environment. Besides, the engagement with local communities and the support of local socio-economic development are a must for Saipem in Nigeria. Saipem executes projects within the broader framework of company policies, national statutes, international laws and conventions applicable to the environmental protection in Nigeria.

Local Content Nigerian Content Development is a major and ingrained concept in Saipem. In Nigeria over the past 30 years Saipem has been committed to developing an adding value to the Nigerian economy through its operations in the onshore and offshore oil and gas business. This has been achieved by the huge investment made in the Rumuolumeni base, as well as other related project investments to broaden the Saipem horizon in building and adding value to Nigeria. Saipem has participated and demonstrated total commitment in pursuing the Government's regulation coordinated by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corp (NNPC) on the Nigerian Content development. The strategic location of the Saipem Group projects in various Niger Delta host communities avails Saipem the opportunity to showcase its corporate commitment to sustainable community development while executing

To be successful, this security strategy had to reflect all those values that had contributed throughout the years to the success of the company; in a few words Saipem Nigeria had to develop a 'Sustainable Holistic Security Strategy projects in these communities. This commitment is expressed trough the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the local communities themselves or with Clusters of Communities. The Approach for Security Never before in its 30 years and more in Nigeria, Saipem has had to face as many security challenges as during the last three years (2006-2008). At a time when competitors were leaving the country because of a rapidly deteriorating security environment, which was putting at risk not only their

14 business but also the life of personnel, Saipem Nigeria management, in line with its motto 'Here to Stay', decided to further develop its existing security strategy and to continue its work in the area of the Niger Delta. To be successful, this security strategy had to reflect all those values that had contributed throughout the years to the success of the company; in a few words Saipem Nigeria had to develop a 'Sustainable Holistic Security Strategy'. Bearing in mind the paramount objectives of protecting people's life, material and immaterial assets through the use of Nigerian Governmental forces, this strategy had also to include strengthening even more than before the Company's relationship withlocal populations, its commitment to continuous development of host communities and its willingness to share with them the responsibilities of carrying a project to completion. Today, in every project in the Niger Delta local communities are also 'security' stakeholders and the company is using this approach to expand its local content policies even more; creating a secure environment for Company's projects to proceed unimpeded is a goal shared by those communities impacted and benefiting from the presence of Saipem Nigeria projects in their midst.

In order to achieve this all movement of materials and personnel in and out, the Base must be thoroughly planned and co-ordinated with the drilling operations for the Oil and the Service Companies. It is our goal to establish for all parties involved in the use of our Marine facility, a base whereby the planning and co-ordination of their activities is made possible through the implementation of a Quality Assurance System to ISO 9000 standard and Total Quality Management (TQM) System similar to what obtains in the North Sea Oil and Gas sector. Furthermore, the scope of services offered from the Base must represent the full range of services required by major Oil and Service Companies in both exploration phase and the production phase of Oil and Gas development. The Adamac Group of Companies Integrated Marine Base facility in Port Harcourt is totally owned and operated by our subsidiary Company, Suffolk Petroleum Services Limited. The Marine Base is situated on fifteen(15) acres of land and has a Quay in excess of 270 metres long with a minimum of 7-metre draft at low tide. Our subsidiary Companies owned Offshore Support Vessels, Diving and Field Maintenance Support Vessels fleet are based and operated from this facility. Our Base is completely self reliant and self sufficient in terms of electrical power, portable water, fuel communications, hotel accommodation, catering facilities, transportation and security.

History

D

orman Long Engineering Limited was founded in 1949 by a mechanical engineer named F. E. Turton Hart and Geo Cole. operating as Amalgamated Engineering Limited, one of the first structural engineering companies in Nigeria specialising in structural steel fabrication for bridges, factories and warehouses. In 1960 the company merged with British Steel's Dorman Long and became Dorman Long & Amalgamated Engineering Limited with a much wider product range including water and fuel tanks, and commercial buildings. The company, then 100% owned by British Steel, played a major role in the general industrial development of Nigeria from the 60's 80's including the spanning of the vast River Niger in the East a bridge which today remains the main link between east and west Nigeria. The name changed finally to Dorman Long E n g i n e e r i n g L i m i t e d i n 2 0 0 2 . The promulgation of the indigenisation decree in 1977 by the Federal Government, saw the beginning of a significant reduction in foreign and an increase in Nigerian shareholding and today the company is 100% owned by Nigerian institutions and individuals. By the 90's the company have moved into the manufacture of equipment for the rapidly expanding oil and gas industries starting with pressure vessels and to do so had developed the facilities and key state of the art skills required for a wide range of high precision heavy engineering products and services. The expansion of facilities and skills continues, most recently with the installation of Nigeria's only large scale engineering quality hot dip galvanising plant. Today Dorman Long is the leading Nigerian engineering company, manufacturing products and providing services to the oil, gas and other industries previously only available

West Africa Ventures Limited History 1974 Foundation of Roomans Eneli Flynn Insurance Brokers. 1978 Sea Trucks Nigeria starts providing inshore services in the Niger delta. 1980’s Sea Trucks marine bases established in Warri & Port Harcourt. Sea Trucks Group starts local vessel building businesses. 1990’s Sea Trucks Group expands rapidly adding capabilities: dry dock, supply base, offshore supply, anchor handling. 2000 – 2007 Further expansion including: - formation of offshore contracting division, - development of Jascon fleet, - fabrication yard developed, - Sharjah base, UAE. 2007 – FutureOngoing fleet development utilising strong vessel building relationships

Global Operations After the successful delivery of its first offshore pipe lay vessel, Jascon 5, in April 2004, the Sea Trucks Group entered the global contracting business. Based on the design of the Jascon 5, the group launched a massive new building program of 7 DP3 “hybrid” offshore marine construction vessels. The first three were delivered in 2007 and 2008 and the remaining four are scheduled for delivery in 2010 and 2011. The group’s headquarters are located in Lagos, Nigeria. The global management of the DP3 construction fleet is controlled from its new office in the United Arab Emirates. From this office engineering & procurement, vessel management and corporate QHSE are controlled, while project teams are located around the world to support local market requirements.

Scts, the group is able to play an important role in the global SUReastream With the launch of Seastream in 2007, a joint venture between the Sea Trucks Group and Wellstream International ,a leading manufacturer of flexible pipe produF market.

Operations West Africa Since the early 1970’s the Sea Trucks Group has been successfully providing marine services to the oil & gas industry in Nigeria. The group’s activities started in the Delta region where it has built up a fleet of passenger transportation vessels, self propelled tankers as well as tugs and barges. Today this fleet still consists of approximately 100 units. With its headquarters in Lagos and operational bases in Warri, Port Harcourt, Onne and Escravos the Sea Trucks Group operates a diversified fleet of AHTS vessels, LH tugs, cargo barges as well as offshore accommodation / construction vessels along the West African coast. In the Onne Free Zone the group operates a multi-functional oilfield supply base / fabrication yard.

West African Ventures With its indigenous operating company, West African Ventures (WAV), the group offers a considerable local content when executing sub-sea construction projects. WAV established its office in Lagos in 2001 and have since built its reputation of a reliable partner in Nigeria for

pipelay, fabrication and installation engineering services as wel as marine transportation. WAV have meanwhile built up a considerable workforce of qualified local engineering personnel managed by experienced expatriates in the Oil & Gas industry.

Offshore Contracting Due to the “hybrid” configuration of our new DP3 construction vessel fleet, which is unique to the offshore industry, the Sea Trucks Group is a diversified offshore contractor able to install both rigid pipelines in S-lay as well as flexible pipelines. Furthermore the vessels are capable to install jackets and topsides, sub-sea umbilicals and submarine power cables, mooring systems as well as Xmas trees and have well intervention capability. The Sea Trucks Group will be able to offer above services on day-rate or on a turnkey EPCI contract basis controlled from its office in the U.A.E. By means of competitive trading in a wide range of marine markets our vessels can be dedicated to a specific region avoiding the need for frequent and costly mobilizations.

Vessel Charters The Sea Trucks Group can supply additional marine spread to support the client’s offshore projects, such as Accommodation / Hook-up Barges Offshore Cargo Barges, AHTS Vessels and Crew Transporation Vessels

Experience WAV has extensive experience in fabricating in Nigeria for the Oil and Gas Industry. Prime costumers include players such as ExxonMobil, Dansole, Halliburton, Stolt, Chevron and Hyundai. To accommodate our clients requirements our Jetty and Fabrication Facilities is placing particular emphasis on the following project areas:

 Fabrication of Oil/Gas Platform Upgrade  Modification of Boatlandings and Top Sides Fabrication of Spool Pieces, Drilling Templates, PLETs etc. Fabrication of Offshore Jackets and Decks  Repair and construction of SBM Buoys Fabrication and Maintenance of Tanks

Furthermore the vessels are capable to install jackets and topsides, sub-sea umbilicals and submarine power cables, mooring systems as well as X-mas trees and have well intervention capability.

WAV FABRICATION

As the oil and gas production rose in the Niger Delta, lately also extending to offshore water, STG and WAV increased their core activities not only to marine, oil and gas spread, but also to the undertaking of oil and gas associated 'Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Fabrication' contract

Commencing with onshore oil and gas marine spread in the Niger Delta, Nigeria, in the late 1970s, STG and WAV quickly understood the importance of proximate marine service bases, in case of technical failures or lack of supplies and materials. Hence in the 1980s service bases were set up in both Onne and Warri for the servicing of both the in-house fleet but also for servicing of other shipowners vessels. As the oil and gas production rose in the Niger Delta, lately also extending to offshore water, STG and WAV increased their core activities not only to marine, oil and gas spread, but also to the undertaking of oil and gas associated 'Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Fabrication' contracts. As a logistical consequence of this company growth also the Onne, and partly the Warri, service bases had to increase their activities to accommodate for the requirements of the oil and gas industry. In the late 1990's dry dock activities were added and be the now the 'Onne Fabrication Yard and Supply Base' of STG and WAV provides full value chain services for the maritime and oil and gas industries.

EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIE To be able to perform the diverse range of fabrication required WAV has invested extensively in its equipment and people. WAV is constantly upgrading and maintaining its portfolio of equipment. A non-exhaustive list of available equipment is given below: PPE Pipe Profile Machines

The graph is an illustration of DeltaAfrik's personnel growth between the Pre-Nigerian Content Directive era and Post-Nigerian Content Bill era.

INTRODUCTION:

T

he Nigerian economy is largely dependent on the Petroleum sector. Contributions to national revenue from this sector are in excess of 70% and more than 90% of foreign exchange earning is from oil exports. However, historically the oil industry has had little direct linkage with the general economy with Nigerian entrepreneurs having limited opportunity to participate in the sector. According to NNPC before Nigerian Content Policy only 14% of the funds spent on serving the industry used to be invested in Nigeria which was quite low compared to other developing countries. The introduction of Nigerian Content Policy reversed the trend by promoting effective Nigerian participation in the sector. The policy's and recently enacted law's basis strategy is to domesticate the industry by developing in-country capacity and indigenous capabilities. By domiciling engineering in Nigeria several indigenous engineering companies have been established which are successfully providing engineering services including procurement and project management on some of the large projects. In the process Nigerian manpower is being used, trained and technical knowledge transferred; local resources are getting used thus helping to build incountry capacity and capability. It is against this backdrop that DeltaAfrik drives its Nigerian Content development efforts.

engineering services since inception till date for Oil and Gas (Producing and Servicing) companies such as Chevron Nigeria Limited, Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited, TotalfinaElf, Shell Petroleum Development Corporation, Addax Petroleum Development, Saipem and West African Ventures on the following areas: Engineering Studies Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) Detailed Engineering Design Project & Construction Management Services Procurement Services and Environmental Studies We offer the services itemized above for: Deepwater Production Facilities Onshore & Offshore Production Facilities Gas Gathering Systems Pipelines The execution of Nigerian Content Policies in DeltaAfrik Engineering was evident in the steady increase in the number of personnel from initial 68 personnel during PreNigerian Content Directive era to over 680 at PostNigerian Content Bill with 1,000,000 Billable Annual Manhours available. A total of 9,478sq metres usable office space is available in four different locations in Victoria Island Lagos out of which 7,484sq metres is available for our Lagos Engineering Design Offices in 3 different locations for execution of projects

NIGERIAN CONTENT ANALYSIS

1.Can you describe the state of DeltaAfrik installed capacity before the full implementation of the Nigeria Content policy from year 2005? From a small beginning 7 years ago, DeltaAfrik has steadily grown over the years into the Company of choice in Africa, asserting its leadership in Hydrocarbons and now expanding into Power and Infrastructure sectors in Nigeria. DeltaAfrik Engineering Limited was incorporated under the Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2003 to provide World Class Project Delivery Services in the Nigerian Oil and Gas Upstream and Downstream Sectors. The company became ISO 9001:2008 Certified in 2005 by BVQI and Lloyds in 2008. The company is jointly owned by DeltaTek Engineering Limited, an indigenous company with 51% Equity share-holding and WorleyParsons (Australian Company) with 49% Equity share-holding. DeltaAfrik Engineering Limited has performed various

Our approach towards Capacity building is a scientific Gap analysis to establish the specific skills and competency and prioritize our activities in closing out those identified gaps as shown in the diagram above. With high focus on adding value to Nigeria economic development, DeltaAfrik have strived to build capacity and maximize local content by engaging as many Nigerians as possible for every project. Labour is engaged for categories of work based on personnel level of skill and competence. During the period of employment, DeltaAfrik supervises and provides on the job training, as required, to increase the skill and competence levels of these personnel. Resources are deployed to identify and place a substantive number of top performing Nigerians in positions within the upper level of a Project Management Team to eliminate succession gap and retain the next generation of leaders for DeltaAfrik, while also improving on their leadership and management skills and to further demonstrate DeltaAfrik commitment in stewarding Nigerian content development on every project. DeltaAfrik have continuously promoted not only the enhancement of technical knowledge and capability of Nigerian personnel, but also their capabilities in terms of versatility, leadership skills, work ethics and methods in contract execution. To further demonstrate the company's determination to drive Nigerian Content Policies on manpower development, the management of DeltaAfrik Engineering Limited in 2008 approved the creation of Nigerian Capacity Building Development Department (NCBD) with the sole responsibility of developing and improving the capability of personnel with its robust and strong commitment to increased local value added approach for national economic development See below table 1 showing the state of our installed capacity before the full implementation of the Nigerian Content policy from year 2005?

2. How has the implementation of the policy boosted installed capacity and how will the enactment of the Nigerian Content law support your operations? Implementation of the Nigerian Content Development policy in DeltaAfrik provided a platform for high focus on adding value to Nigeria economic development. DeltaAfrik have strived to build capacity and maximize local content by engaging as many Nigerians as possible for every project. Labour is engaged for categories of work based on personnel level of skill and competence. During the period of employment, DeltaAfrik supervises and provides on the job training, as required, to increase the skill and competence levels of these personnel. Resources are deployed to identify and place a substantive number of top performing Nigerians in positions within the upper level of a Project Management Team to eliminate succession gap and retain the next generation of leaders for DeltaAfrik, while also improving on their leadership and management skills and to further demonstrate DeltaAfrik commitment in stewarding Nigerian content development on every project. DeltaAfrik have continuously promoted not only the enhancement of technical knowledge and capability of Nigerian personnel, but also their capabilities in terms of versatility, leadership skills, work ethics and methods in contract execution. DeltaAfrik's parent company WorleyParsons has provided its globally used systems and procedures for executing projects in Nigeria. DeltaAfrik has access to WorleyParsons global resources and expertise for incountry execution of projects.

Over 100

DeltaAfrik has leveraged on the enactment of the Nigerian Content law to explore the numerous opportunities provided in other sectors such as power, infrastructure, construction, transportation, environment and other areas in oil and gas sector. We have grown capabilities and strengths through the following strategies; •Commitment at the highest level of DeltaAfrik management and both parent companies, DeltaTek and Worley Parsons managements •Working with international firm (Worley Parsons) that imbibe and practice our culture of non-discrimination •Employing and training Nigerian technical and management staff •Employing competent and qualified local subcontractors to provide technical and non-technical services and support. •Carrying out our design with the objective of maximizing opportunities for local businesses. •Investing in office, logistics, and other business support infrastructure, goods, and services, all of which are purchased locally. •Access to Worley Parsons global systems, procedures, tools and expertise

Other major areas that have boosted our installed capacity include;

3. Financing is a major concern in the industry. How has DELTAAFRIK been able to surmount this challenge? DeltaAfrik have continually leveraged on the existing international banking relationship and goodwill enjoyed by its foreign technical partners Worley Parsons. But the most important factor to surmount this challenge is the commitment DeltaAfrik management and both parent companies, DeltaTek and WorleyParsons managements at the highest level

•The establishment of Business Relationship with qualified Nigerian Subcontractors •Specification of Work to be Performed by Nigerian Subcontractors •Engineering and Procurement Activities iinvolving Nigerian Subcontractors/Suppliers •Fabrication and Installation activities iinvolving Nigerian subcontractors •Use of Nigerian subcontractors Offices and Facilities

4. There are concerns that most indigenous operators may not have the requisite installed capacity to make the Nigerian Content law operable. Do you agree with this and what is the current installed engineering and manpower capacity of DELTAAFRIK? We agree. The lack of requisite installed capacity for most indigenous operators could be attributed to various challenges that they face operating in-country. They

 Pre-feasibility screening studies Business model development Feasibility studies Conceptual design Cost estimating Contract planning Preliminary Engineering (FEED) Cost estimating Execution planning Detailed Engineering E n g i n e e r i n g , P r o c u r e m e n t a n d C o n s t r u c t i o n Management (EPCM)

Project Management & Control (PMC) Brownfield projects Portfolio delivery Asset management Business improvement Operations and maintenance support Our strategies towards sustaining this built capacity include; The alignment of commercial and long-term business drivers Continuous investment in human resources and infrastructure to close gaps Application of DeltaAfrik full EPCM procedures, tools and systems for in-country execution Focus on long-term development, growth and profitability as opposed to short term project gains Our access to preferred global software license agreements plus other intellectual property from WorleyParsons Our proven execution capability able to fulfill commitments to our clients Our operational support is tied back to WorleyParsons technical engineering, management and systems support is readily available We are ISO 9001-2008 certified COREN Registered Engineering company SON registration in process 5. Also of major concern is manpower training. How is DELTAAFRIK dealing with this concern? Are there arrangements in place with foreign entities to facilitate training and possible technology transfer? DeltaAfrik has continued to promote not only the enhancement of knowledge and capability of Nigerian technical personnel in various projects, but also their capabilities in terms of versatility, leadership skills, work ethics and methods in contract execution. The primary objective of DeltaAfrik training program is to increase the discipline competencies of selected trainees, meet the contractual terms on training under the various projects and align with the Nigerian Content Law. In addition, a comprehensive on-the-job oriented Training & Development Program is continually implemented to broaden the knowledge and skills of the selected Trainees. This approach provides a framework where training can be applied to all departments in order to achieve an increased overall percentage of workers being trained during a project lifecycle. The training program is meant to improve the quality of work through a systematic improvement in the quality of the company workforce. These expose areas where


DeltaAfrik

26

deficiencies exist with a view to training and updating skills required to meet expected levels of performance on the project. The company adopted the bottom-up approach to the implementation of the training program. Young graduate engineers are recruited and are still being recruited. This is a deliberate policy predicated on the need to enable the relatively young minds to imbibe the culture of work, discipline and professionalism that the business requires. DeltaAfrik also instituted a staff training and development drive for different cadres of technical staff. This is to inculcate in them the requisite skills and competence for management, supervisory and operational positions throughout the company. Significant progress has been made with the employment of Nigerians in various supervisory and management cadres within the corporate organization.

These are strategically sustained through the following programs;

Succession Plan; Overseas Secondment and Training; Coaching/Mentoring (OJT) Aspire Program; NCD training Benefits of expatriate supervision; Rotation/Exchange programs;  Recruitments of Nationals working abroad; Vigorous recruitment of nationals so as to reduce number of expatriate (Adverts Newspapers (Lagos & the NigerDelta), radio jingles (P/Harcourt). 6. Inextricably tied to the success of the Nigerian Content law is the steady flow of jobs in the industry. However, following the delay in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB, there appears to be a dearth of investments in projects. What is DELTAAFRIK doing in the face of dwindling projects from within the industry? The delay in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB affected huge investments expected in the industry which will create millions of engineering manhours of projects. Because of our proven track record in delivering highly professional and quality projects within budget, schedule and meeting our clients project objectives; we have been executing some of the projects through the ongoing Engineering Service Agreements (ESAs) we have with most of the Exploration & Production companies. 7 .Have you been forced to lay off workers? NO 8. Have you resorted to surviving on bailouts from your parent company, the NNPC? NO 9. Are you satisfied with the current configuration of the NCDMB and its operations or are there areas where you perceive they can do better? The configuration of NCDMB as a parastatal of the Petroleum Ministry couldn't come at a better time and it is good to know that the new management is an extraction of the NCD team in NNPC that has worked from the scratch directive stages in 2004 to present day. However, the new board must work assiduously to get all the directorates up and running to consolidate on the gains made prior to signing the bill into law. Presently, major operational activities of IOCs are left unchecked and monitored with its attendant negative impact on Nigerian Content Development. Achieving the desired results require high commitment and drive on the part of management and or authority and NCDMB is that authority . 10. The security concerns in the delta are slowly creeping up again. How do you think this will affect implementation of the Nigerian Content law and how do you propose we tackle it? In our opinion the full benefits and objectives of the Nigerian Content law may not be realized if the Niger Delta region remains restive. In the light of the above, let us take a look at the Niger Delta from an analytical point of view. Components of Niger Delta Comprises 9 states within the south-south geopolitical region of Nigeria Predominantly populated by minority groups (Ijaw, Itsekiri, Urhobo, Ibiobios) A sensitive ecosystem rich in biodiversity

Halliburton established its presence in Nigeria in 1959 with the original Halliburton objective to help service Nigeria’s promising new oil and gas industry, recently started by Shell and British Petroleum. Since then, Halliburton’s service offerings have grown from primarily cementing to a wide range of other oil field products and services. Today in Nigeria, Halliburton comprises four major business groups—Halliburton Energy Services Nigeria Ltd., Halliburton Operations Nigeria Ltd., Baroid of Nigeria Ltd., and Landmark Graphics Nigeria, Ltd. Together, these groups have a work force of over 700 employees. Nigerian Content Halliburton Energy Services Nigeria Limited, as a front runner in the oil services industry in Nigeria, is providing growth opportunities for indigenous employees in accordance with the government’s Local Content policy. Personnel Levels

To support the operations locally, Halliburton provides to the customer three separate human resource categories: Field Personnel Field personnel are responsible for rig site service quality and safety. The vast majority of Halliburton’s field personnel in-country are Nigerian nationals. Technical Support Local Technical Advisors have the responsibility of responding to customer needs with in-depth knowledge of specific product lines.

Supervision Management The product service line (PSL) manager has operational responsibility and maintains regular contact with the customer. PSL coordinators are in charge of the job preparation, people scheduling, and equipment. This position consists of 67% Nigerians and 33% foreign Expats.

Q&A C

an you describe the state of your organization's installed capacity before the full implementation of the Nigerian Content policy from year 2005? As Halliburton has successfully operated in Nigeria for more than 50 years, we noted that nearly 30 percent of our 300-person strong workforce was expatriate personnel in 2005. We are proud to now have achieved more than 93 percent nationalization of our workforce that has almost doubled in size. 2. How has the implementation of the policy boosted installed capacity and how will the enactment of the Nigerian Content law support your operations? It is not expected that the implementation of the local content policy will immediately boost installed capacity as this will take sometime; however, in the future and given the right business atmosphere, we should see a boost in installed capacity. Halliburton believes the Nigerian Content policy ultimately will benefit the development of Nigerians and Nigerian industry. We started several years ago interacting with and supporting different Nigerian indigenous service companies. We continue to make these relationships success stories and look forward to sharing them in the near future. 3. Financing is a major concern in the industry. How has your organisation been able to surmount this challenge?

We continue to be proactive and have been able to successfully adjust our operations to the market conditions throughout the years. We have been in Nigeria for more than 50 years and we plan to stay for many years more to come by continuing our investments in our people and infrastructure. 4. There are concerns that most indigenous operators may not have the requisite installed capacity to make the Nigerian Content law operable. Do you agree with this and what is the current installed engineering and manpower capacity of your organisation? We believe the indigenous companies presently do not have the required installed capacity to make this law operable; however, we believe the Nigerian Content law is on-track to achieve its purpose and may change the future of local operations in Nigeria, although it is difficult to speculate regarding how much the law will change operations. Halliburton is proud that our local workforce capacity is comprised of 93 percent Nigerians. 5. Also of major concern is manpower training. How is your organisation dealing with this concern? Are there arrangements in place with foreign entities to facilitate training and possible technology transfer? At Halliburton, our employees are regarded as our greatest assets and therefore, we place a premium value on their

35 Halliburton’s Philosophy: SustainabilityIn today’s business climate our future is intertwined with the communities in which we operate. As such, sustainable sourcing and relationships are key aspects of our business strategy. Throughout our tenure in Nigeria we have steadily increased our Nigerian workforce and local supplier involvement. Today Nigerian nationals account for more than 91% of our overall Nigeria workforce and our local spend on Nigerian goods and services exceeds 38% of our total expenditure in Nigeria. Nigeria Sustainable DevelopmentAt Halliburton we recognize the need to transfer skills to both indigenous workers and businesses—by doing so we can create greater economic opportunities for the entire community. Our commitment to sustainability in Nigeria is demonstrated through: Over $100 million per year spent on locally sourced equipment, services, and personnel. Proven ability to deliver 60% of contract value as Nigerian Content for some service lines. Enhancing opportunities for Nigerians to manage the business, both locally and internationally. Working contracts with the following Nigerian companies: O Drillog Petrodynamics, Ltd. O Drillpet International O CISCON O Oilfield Inspection Services O WASCO O Gulflink Ltd. O Echodata O SDF O HydroServe O Oando O Eastline O Geoplex Ltd O ansfield

training. We have state-of-the-art training facilities located in strategic locations all over the world and have brought and conducted global training and business leadership development training from a world-renowed university (Texas A&M University) in Nigeria. We constantly seek opportunities for knowledge and technology transfer across our workforce. Annually, Halliburton employees receive on average of more than 60 hours of training per person and many programs are designed to provide compulsory training for specific job classifications as well as highlight and develop technical and professional competencies across work areas. Over 100 Nigerians currently are working in management positions with Halliburton globally and we expect many of these employees will continue as future leaders of our company in the coming years.

Community Development Community ProgrammesOur focus is to establish and maintain partnerships with other companies operating within the communities, as well as active involvement with NGO to deliver long term benefits.Our dedicated Community Relations Manager based in Port Harcourt, works in consultation with local Community Chiefs and client organizations. Initiatives to date include Investment in Education through Education Scholarships and provision and renovation of school infrastructure in Port Harcourt (Oginigba & Rebisi) and Warri (Effurun), and Community Projects. 5 million NGN is spent annually on a range of local projects:

6. Inextricably tied to the success of the Nigerian Content law is the steady flow of jobs in the industry. However, following the delay in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB, there appears to be a dearth of investments in projects. What is your organisation doing in the face of dwindling projects from within the industry? As we joined the industry in monitoring the PIB developments this year, we sought such opportunities to seek additional aining and development of our personnel for technical and business leadership technical skills development to ensure we remain fully prepared when industry activity increases.

Boreholes Power Orphans Road Repairs Sports Development Schools Scholarships Fish farming Safety training

7. Have you been forced to lay off workers? No, we are very proud to say that we joined our colleagues in many countries around the world remaining focused on maximizing value for our shareholders and continuing to develop our workforce so we did not have any personnel reductions. 8. Have you resorted to surviving on bailouts from your foreign partners? Absolutely not. 9. Are you satisfied with the current configuration of the NCDMB and its operations or are there areas where you perceive they can do better? We continue to support the Nigerian Content law and believe that active involvement and collaboration between international service companies and others in the industry with the Board will only help the Board's goals and objectives in shaping all facets of the policy implementation.

10. The security concerns in the delta are slowly creeping up again. How do you think this will affect implementation of the Nigerian Content law and how do you propose we tackle it? Security remains a priority for Halliburton and elsewhere globally and we believe all industry parties should continue to work together with local authorities in an effort to find ways to peacefully help the development of the area and the industry.

Laser Engineering and Resources Consultants Limited Capacity Development

L

aser Engineering Consultants was registered in 1990 in Nigeria (Reg. No: RC 363790) to render services to the oil and gas industry in particular and also to the general public. In 1999 Laser was incorporated under the name “LASER ENGINEERING AND RESOURCES CONSULTANTS LIMITED” and it is still 100% fully owned by Nigerians. We have built capacity and competence in our areas of service over the years and have positioned ourselves to be known as one of the trusted Nigerian companies in the industry. To position ourselves better to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Nigerian Content Act, Our services has expanded in the last six years from Reservoir Management Studies, PVT/Environmental Laboratory and Manpower training units to also accommodate a world class Geo science Training Centre, a Slickline unit. Expansion plans are also underway to acquire more equipment in the existing units especially PVT Cells in the Laboratory, start a Core Analysis Section and a Research Laboratory. Our office facility has also been expanded to include one and two-story buildings, an administrative block, a separate Water Laboratory building, and 3 classroom facility. The complex includes: Offices, Seminar/Class R o o m s , C o n f e r e n c e R o o m s , P V T L a b o r a t o r y, Environmental Laboratory, Core Laboratory (New), 2 Workstations/Reservoir Study Centers, Workshop and Living Quarters for Course participants. It also includes parking facilities for all personnel, storage facilities for machines and future expansion in the form of raw land. Our head office is situated at Km 5 East West Road, (Off Inco Petroleum), Rumuodara, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. It is strategically located aiding access by clients and movement of equipment and plants to and from sites. More so it is surrounded by good road networks. Before the year 2004, we have been making steady and continuos effort to train our staff who are the chief resources of our industry. Part of our business is training and manpower development and our staff are the chief beneficiaries of this aspect of the business. This can be confirmed from the fact that people who were trained in Laser are working in all parts of the globe including Nigeria. We have some of them in Saudi Arabia, Oman, USA (Houston- Texas) to mention but a few and a good number of them are now working for Shell Petroleum Development Company, Sclumberger, ExxonMobil etc. We believe in the development of human capital therefore we go all out sometimes to import expatriates to train our people on specific areas. Due to the explosion in terms of jobs and contracts being expected in the industry, we have also in the past few years sent our personnel abroad for training to ensure that knowledge is domiciled within in preparation to

take over the jobs that the industry will generate due to the NC Act. Our equipment are up to date and ready in expectations of the jobs being awaited for from the full implementation of the Act. Our Slickline equipment are Zone two compliant and that is the best you can get in any part of the globe. Out PVT Cells are also state of the art and Mercury –free. We also have some of the best software in Reservoir Management Studies in the country All these are geared towards ensuring that capacity is built in readiness for jobs. The staedy flow of jobs in the Industry depends so much on the full implementation of the Act and the Petroleum Industry Bill. Our installed capacity has risen in every aspect especially since the advent of the Policy and we strongly believe that the implementation of the Act will boost projects and our operations. The company is currently being financed internally and through retained earnings but we believe that with the introduction of the Nigerian Content Support Fund we will able to get more funds at less interest rates. Finally we want to commend the effort of the NCDMB for what they have started. Efforts should be geared toward ensuring that penalties are awarded to defaulters of the provisions of this Act to deter others who would want to default in future. This way the Act will be taken seriously. We salute the efforts of the Nigerian Content Divison and the Federal Government of Nigeria.

Our installed capacity has risen in every aspect especially since the advent of the Policy and we strongly believe that the implementation of the Act will boost projects and our operations

Services Slickline Laser Engineering recently added slickline to its numerous services. This is a dream come true as it will go a long way to improve services and add value to the industry by getting into data acquisition for the industry knowing the problems we encounter in analyzing data collected by vendors who pay little or no attention to appropriate procedures. We just acquired state - of the - art equipment for this service which includes rugged Slimline and CS Skid units from ASEP of Holland, Our reliable memory gauges have large memory capacities and excellent data quality.

Nigerian Ports Authority In Partnership With Intels Nigeria Limited Private Sector Participation in Nigerian Seaports Historical Background Intels formally called Nicotes came into being approximately twenty six years ago with a vision to developing an integrated logistic solution, offering a complete package of facilities and services to the Oil and Gas sector participants operating in Nigeria. Intels provides its clients with the following services: Terminal operator for supply and ocean going vessels, open pipe racks for tubulars, Offices and warehouses, cargo handling and transportation equipment, workshop for equipment maintenance, skilled personnel to coordinate and perform logistics operations, dedicated facilities, personnel and equipment, fresh water, Helipad services, Telecom center, Agency services for support vessels, Data processing for shipping traffic and materials stock control, 24hr/365 day operations

Oil & Free Zone Onne Strategic Regional Maritime Hub Onne OGFZ has an unparallel position in W Africa and is strategically located as a support Base for logistical services for oil & gas projects in Nigeria both onshore and offshore as well as the remainder of Sub Sahara Africa with its duty free status.

1982 to 1984 Nigerian Port Authority (NPA) invited the private sector to operate at the Federal Lighter Terminal (FLT) Eight companies took up the opportunity, but within two years, by 1984, there were only two companies still operating, one of which was Intels then known as Nicotes Services Ltd Onne Port Complex Federal Lighter Terminal FLT Completed in the late 1970s and meant to decongest the Lagos and Warri ports Federal Ocean Terminal FOT Conceived in the '70's to be one of the deepest ports in West Africa. 1982, the foreign contractors building the Onne Port Complex abandoned the construction due to funding challenges Early Partnership Mid 1980s In 1985, Intels applied for and was awarded a five‐year lease of NPA facilities at Onne with a vision to develop “One Stop” Transit & Supply Bases within the Government owned Port Complexes and in close cooperation with the Nigerian Ports Authority 1982 to 1984 The concept of a “one stop transit and supply base” by Nicotes proved extremely suitable for the offshore exploration and development embarked upon by the Oil Companies. In 1992, Nicotes in need of long term investment towards business development applied for a 21 year extension of its leases at Onne, Warri, Calabar Port Complexes and was one of the three (3) companies that were ultimately awarded similar leases by the government of Nigeria. The company embarked on huge investments in infrastructure, including the development of stacking area, the refurbishment of warehousing and quay apron and successfully berthed the first vessels to arrive the Federal Ocean Terminal FOT in late 1995 Ports concessions objectives Private sector participation in Ports development in Nigeria Efficient ports operation Employment generation Maximizing revenue generation for the Nigerian Government

The major IOCs and Oil Service companies now have their bases at Onne thereby saving large logistics costs. This in turn generated revenue for NPA and saved costs for NNPC/JV operations Nigeria's deepwater offshore industry has, to a large degree, been made possible by the fact that, thanks to the NPA‐Intels relationship, the Country has, in Onne Port Complex, a modern, well‐equipped, deep‐water port facility.

Some include: Roads, Power, Telecommunication, and of course, security. Strange as this may sound, the Onne Port Complex (OGFZ) is still being powered by Generators on a 24:7 basis. Urgent need to sand fill and develop additional facilities .(on going negotiation with NPA) The Onne Port link road was in a deplorable condition for a considerable number of years before the award of contract for the dualisation of the 7 kilometer road which is on‐going by contractor as we speak. Challenges: WARRI PORT OPERATIONS The Warri Port area is slowly getting back to its glorious days of full activity as a result of the Nigerian Government Amnesty Programme. Despite the lack of activity, Intels is still committed in the long term and is maintaining a workforce of about 500 staffers. presently we are collaborating with all the various stakeholders, youth bodies and community leaders towards the restoration of full economic activity back at the Warri Port. Challenges: Calabar Port With the current concession regime, INTELS has initiated moves to fence the entire area subleased to her by NPA. However, it is necessary to note here that the success

CONCLUSION Intels as a terminal Operator is committed to collaborate with Government vice versa to move the Nigerian Nation forward through ports development and employment generation. We estimate that 5000 new jobs could be generated in the next 5 years. There is the need for government to synergize its agencies, support and ensure proper implementation of policies that affect the growth of the Ports. Intels will continue to invest in new technologies to enhance operations and profitability and also maintain world class QHSE standards. Over 140 investors presently operating within the ports with a combine investment profile of over $3 billion and more investors are keen to establish their present in the Ports attracting additional investment at the Federal Government owned ports We solicit Federal Government assistance in ensuring the completion of the on going or abandoned infrastructural projects for the ports Speedy completion of the Onne Port dualisation of the 7 kilometer link road which is presently on going by contractor . Providing sustainable power supply to the Ports . The Onne Port Complex is still being powered by Generators 24:7 .

The Federal Government has recently re-emphasised it's support for development of Logistics facilities in Lagos by issuing a directive through the Ministry of Transport that oil and gas vessels can go directly into any suitable facility in Nigeria Further, there is an imminent policy clarification expected from NAPIMS, confirming that Oil and Gas Companies can also tender for logistics support in Lagos for the blocks, West of the Niger Delta. These important policy clarifications will enable the 6 oil majors, who have been waiting to issue tenders for support in Lagos to move forward with their programs ....which will signal the market that Lagos is well and truly open for business and opening the door to the US$20 billion that will be spent on deep offshore oil and gas development.

he oil and gas industry and the financial services sector are inextricably linked for obvious reasons. The finance industry encompasses a broad range of organizations that deal with the management of money. Among these organizations are banks, credit card companies, insurance companies, consumer finance companies, stock brokerages, investment funds and some government sponsored enterprises. However, in this edition, we have limited our focus to the insurance sub-sector.

Brief History We established business in 1969 as Nigeria Exchange Insurance Company Limited. Over the years, we have been through series of transformations that have brought us where we are and shaped us into who we are today. With a redirection of the internal and external dynamics of the company, we focused our core business on a yawning gap in the insurance industry: Energy Insurance. In 2003 International Energy Insurance, IEI was born. This was followed by a major recapitalization, which was needed to meet the challenges of this new direction. In 2007, and with a general insurance license from the National Insurance Commission, IEI became a Plc and raised capital in the neighborhood of N7.7Billion from private placement. Our authorized share capital of 8.5 Billion has N2.5 Billion paid up and a capital reserve of N6.0 Billion as at 2007 financial year end. The company’s security is backed by a consortium of local and foreign re-insurers coupled with our technical partners Mash Ltd., London, AON Corporation, London. AON is currently rated the No.1 Global Reinsurance Brokers. IEI has in a short period experienced phenomenal growth in its business production and gained the confidence of the market, demonstrating innovation and an aggressive business development approach in a notoriously conservative industry.

Pension Assets Are Safe Pension administration in this country had been chaotic with pensioners protesting all over the place. People made contributions under one pension scheme or another, but were not sure where their contributions were. Many employees in the private sector were not covered by the pension schemes of their employers and many of these scheme were not funded. These and many more were the reasons the Board of Editors of THISDAY engaged Muhammad K. Ahmad, Director-General of the Pension Commission of Nigeria, as part of the THISDAY Monthly Interview Series. The Stock market is reported to have lost some N3 trillion in the last six months. Considering that a lot of pension funds have been invested in the market, how

safe are the owners of the funds and you as Pencom. The pension funds are safe and I can tell you why. At the end of August, total pensioners funds was at N970 billion. Pension assets can be categorized into two main groups. The first is what we call Savings Account Funds. These are contributions that individual employees under the scheme have made. Those who have opened an account, as at today, are 3.4 million Nigerians. That fund is being invested by pension fund administrators, but not all the funds are invested in stocks. Under our investment regulation, the maximum that can be invested in stocks is 25 percent. In other words, about 80 percent of the funds are invested in fixed income, the money market, government securities, corporate bond and real estate. Clearly, you could say substantial part of the fund is outside the capital market. There were incentives to invest in the capital market when it was booming. Now the returns are slowing down, but they are above inflation rate. The essence of pension funds investment is that you have returns in excess of inflation. The second group of pension assets are the ones we inherited from the old scheme. It is usually funded by the employers. I will give you an example, Shell and Mobil or Total, they have their own schemes. They were existing schemes before the reforms, which the law has allowed to continue. Now, the law also provided that in order not to administer the scheme in a distressed manner, they could continue in the same investment profile they had, which means that they could continue in the capital market. They can continue because the law allows that. The second reason they are allowed to invest in the capital market is that because it is an employer scheme, the employer has given an undertaking to the Commission that in case of losses on investment, and the employer is required to meet the short-fall. For that group percentage of their funds invested in the capital market is about 29 percent. That means about 70% is invested outside the capital market. So to answer your question, we don’t think the pension assets have been affected by the capital market.

ompanies under this category are those engaged in the systematic collection of geophysical data for spatial studies. These companies conduct seismic investigations to be able to describe geological structures in the bedrock. At sea, sonar signals are transmitted from the ocean surface (pings), and the echoes are captured by special measurement instruments. Geophysical surveys may use a great variety of sensing instruments, and data may be collected from above or below the Earth's surface or from aerial or marine platforms.


IDSL Integrated Data Services Limited, IDSL NNPC set up the first indigenous seismic acquisition crew (Party X) in 1978. Following the success of Party X, a second crew (Party Y) was set up in 1984. The first indigenous Data Processing Centre (DPC) was established in 1984. In 1986 National Hydrocarbon Reserve Evaluation Centre (NHREC) was set up and merged with DPC. The Impressive performance of the two seismic crews, DPC and NHREC prompted the merger of all these units into IDSL during the 1988 commercialization in NNPC. IDSL was established in 1988 as a business unit of NNPC with a focus on seismic data acquisition/processing and reservoir engineering services.

United Geophysical ..pioneers in the acquisition of high quality seismic data

Introduction Welcome to United Geophysical, pioneers and leaders in the acquisition of 3D and 4D seismic data. For companies seeking the highest quality seismic data, acquired safely with leading edge technology within budget and timescales you have come to the right place. Beginning operations in Western Africa almost fifty years ago, United Geophysical has operated predominately within The Niger Delta. These fifty years of continuous operations have established cooperative relationships with local communities that strengthen and support United's presence as leaders in the acquisition of high quality 3D and 4D seismic data in the region. Acquiring high quality seismic data, requires teams of well trained and highly motivated personnel, the most modern technology and specialised logistical support equipment. A fleet of purpose built vehicles and boats enables safe and efficient access to even the most remote and challenging of locations. The results of our commitment and expertise economic, reliable, efficient data acquisition enabling you to make well informed business decisions. United Geophysical offices in London, Houston and Lagos are further supported logistically by workshops, offices, storage, slipways and state of the art communication facilities in many locations across Nigeria. N.B. United Geophysical does not acquire or process seismic data for our own account nor do we participate in oil or gas ventures. The data acquired and processed remains the physical and intellectual property of our clients.

Our history One of the first companies to provide geological services to the oil industry, the company was formed in The United States of America in 1937. The 1950's and 60's saw the expansion of the corporation Internationally and conducted seismic surveys in over 60 countries world-wide during this period. Ownership of United Geophysical has changed as developments have occurred. The owners during the seventies, The Bendix Corporation of North America, sold its interest to Seiscom Delta in 1981. Seiscom Delta United merged with Norpac and Grant Geophysical undergoing a re-organisation period. Only the West African operations arm of the several parent companies retained its corporate identity of United Geophysical. It was this company which was purchased from Grant Geophysical in 1997 as a management buy out by several present, past senior management staff and other investors. Leading to the present position as leaders of seismic surveys in the region.

Niger delta experience 3D operations in the Niger Delta require highly specialised equipment. Alongside United Geophysical's 50 plus four wheel drive vehicles deployed on land and urban areas, a fleet of houseboats, tugs and gunboats are put to work surveying swamp and rainforest in the region. Line equipment maintenance Acquiring seismic data of the highest quality is

quality acquisition of seismic data for all our clients. dependent upon many factors. Amongst of the most important is the quality and fidelity of a contractor's geophones and line equipment. Keeping line equipment at its optimum in harsh operating environments is challenging for any contractor. United Geophysical invest heavily in time and effort to meet the challenge to ensure the highest

United Geophysical has in place a robust and highly practical quality management system for line equipment maintenance. Our project management system defines clear standards for line equipment preventative and rotational maintenance. These standards are implemented into our workshop procedures and manuals. Frequent formal and informal training of our

workshop staff ensures the highest standards expected by our clients. All United Geophysical line equipment maintenance staff receive regular and ongoing training. Regular audit and cross audit maintained by staff and management further strengthen maintenance practices. Engineering workshop staff attend monthly quality control meetings, here problems are discussed and solutions agreed upon. Implementation of solutions are then put to use through the use of a corrective action register allowing the engineering manager to assign action parties and time frames to close out each action point. Achieving a quality loop of continuous improvement that ensures our line equipment is always at its best in the field and delivers data enabling our clients to make well informed decisions.

Project management system United Geophysical has a very comprehensive project management system which forms the basis of our quality management system. All key departments such as HSE, Recording, Surveying, Drilling, Engineering, Seismology, Transport, ALG, Community Affairs and Security have their own project management system documentation. Each of these key departments has its own set of operating standards set down in its company operating standards manual. The project management system manual is a detailed and comprehensive collection of work procedures which are compliant with the operating standards manual, also included is an organogram of the department and job descriptions for all departmental staff. A quality loop of continuous improvement is formed through staff training, scheduled auditing, monthly quarterly meeting and managed corrective action During the monthly quality meeting, corrective action points are agreed, action parties assigned and a time frame set, progress is then managed using a corrective action register. These action points can also be used as performance targets for employees and can also be incorporated into our performance improvement plan.

Project planning Once a client confirms the prospect's co-ordinates we research our unrivalled Seismic archive and database which stretches back through almost 50 years of Niger Delta operations. The data base provides us with very detailed information for the planned project. Making use of our extensive map and satellite imagery database determines the ground conditions before scouting teams are deployed from our advanced logistics group into the field. A typical team consists of a surveyor, an engineer and a community affairs manager supported by two or three 4WD vehicles. Scouting prospects by boat and helicopter where necessary. During the scouting phase ground conditions are confirmed, identifying major logistical difficulties, safety hazards, available resources and potential infrastructure sites within the prospect area. United Geophysical's team of seismologists then design the field grid geometry to client specifications and model the field of cover. On completion we determine our acquisition strategy for survey, drilling and recording operations. At this stage we formalise our HSE, Community Affairs and Security plans specifically for the prospect. Our HSE plan will identify the HSE team to be assigned to the project. The major hazards specific to the project and emergency response plans such as medivac procedures, all of which form the basis of the HSE case for the project. Our CA plan will include a community employment

strategy, community assisted projects, youth incentive schemes, crop assessment and compensation schemes. Communities and clans within the prospect area are identified and a series of meetings with the chiefs and leaders within the project area are scheduled. Our Security plan establishes a prospect specific security management system and includes contingency planning.

Community affairs United Geophysical's operational success in the Niger Delta has been more than ably assisted by the participation and cooperation of local communities. Strong and mutually beneficial ties are crucial to the obtaining of the most reliable seismic data in the region. Community Affairs planning, includes community employment strategies, community assisted projects, youth incentive schemes, crop assessment and compensation schemes.

These plants totally consume the natural gas supplied delivering Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Natural Gas Liquids (NGL), High Octane Fuel Additives (HOFA) as well as Excess Electrical power that can be transferred to the national grid if viable or used to power the plant utilities. iv. Early production facilities: Early-production facilities (EPFs) can help operators bring their new discoveries on stream fast (within 6 months) while full field development is being planned and permanent facilities are being built (Usually takes up to 24 months). v. Remote Monitoring Product solutions: Wireless sensors are deployed at well heads or process flow facilities to measure a variety of data such as pressure and temperature, flow rates, density of produced fluids etc. The sensors are tied into the clients existing telecommunications infrastructure or independently transmitted real time to the client via web interfaces accessible from client offices.

Technological Milestones Oildata has been at the fore of innovative solutions and has recorded quite a number of technological milestones which include: —Oildata was the first company to successfully record a horizontal well Production Log on an ExxonMobil Well in West Africa (Ubit71, Ubit 75, 1995) —Oildata was the first company to successfully record a horizontal well Production Log on an ExxonMobil Well in West Africa (1995) —Oildata was the first company to design and install an open-close-open straddle packer system to isolate a high pressure gas zone while simultaneously permitting the production of oil from a deeper horizon (ChevronTexaco, 1998, 1999) —Oildata was the first company to deploy a wireline tractor in a horizontal well in Nigeria to acquire reservoir data without coiled tubing or pipe conveyed logging equipment (Shell, 1999) —Oildata successfully re-established oil production from the abandoned Salt pond Marginal field, offshore Ghana. (SOPC/GNPC - 2002) —Oildata was the first company to successfully perforate a well using Slickline and/or Coiled Tubing in the Niger Delta —Oildata introduced the concept of Short String Perforation using the IMPACT-E. (Single rig up—single trip oriented perforation)

Championing Capacity Building in the Niger Delta Capacity Building in the Niger Delta in the past 5 years, the Oildata Energy Group has made tremendous contributions to the development and building of Human and Technological Capacity foundation. One of the major contributions is the Fast Track Development Projects for Marginal Fields. This is targeted to aid Indigenous companies who have just acquired Marginal Fields and are looking for quick and cost-effective ways to produce their fields while recouping their investments and further developing their assets. Another contribution is the installation of Total Gas Utilization Plants for Stranded Gas Fields also aimed at generating additional electrical power supply. The third contribution is in the establishment of the MIND foundation which is a not-forprofit organization focused on equipping less privileged children with IT and vocational skills.

Case 1: Energia Ltd—OML 56 (Fast Track Oil) The Field which was originally drilled and operated by Total E&P was transferred to Energia Ltd (a Nigerian company) with just one (1) prospective well. The challenge was how to produce the well and gain profitability before continuing with the development of the field. This was achieved with the Fast Track Development Plan for Marginal Fields.


Oildata The key concepts were the installation of the EPF and the Trucking of Crude. These lowcost alternatives enabled the company to recoup their investments and begin plans for the drilling of a second (2nd) well.

Production: Pre-Fast Track Project : 0 BOPD Post-Fast Track Project:: >2500 BOPD

Case 2: Walter Smith—OML 16 (Fast Track Oil) OML 16 was previously drilled and operated by Shell/Agip/Elf/NNPC JV and later transferred to Walter Smith (a Nigerian company). Again, the challenge was how to produce the well and gain profitability before continuing with the development of the field. This was also achieved with the Fast Track Development Plan.

Production Gains: Pre-Fast Track Project: 0 BOPD Post-Fast Track Project: >2000 BOPD.

Case 3: Installation of Modular Gas Plant The construction of Xenergi’s gas processing plant commenced in August 2009. The project was conceptualized and scoped to achieve the following primary objectives: —Completely utilize the associated gas produced from Energia’s OML 56 through the adjoining flow station, which would eliminate gas flaring and environmental pollution in the region. —Generate Electricity to run the plant and supply the neighbouring communities. —Production of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) and Propane which is a direct input into the domestic consumption pool of these products. An additional product for the export market is the High Octane Fuel Additives (HOFA™)

Key Contribution: —The plant is utilizing Gas that would have otherwise been flared adding to the country’s GDP. —This plant will provide job opportunities as well as develop a skilled labour pool within the host communities —The Plant will be an additional source of LPG supply to the Nigerian domestic Market

Case 4: The MIND Foundation The MIND Foundation was established by the Oildata Energy Group as one of its contribution to human capacity development in the Niger Delta with a mission to “Bridge the literacy and digital divide by using digital learning to foster life-long learning and hands-on education for children and youth of our nation and then Africa.” MIND’s efforts equip senior secondary students in rural community schools with skills and competencies required to reach their full potential in every area of personal and academic life by combining the strengths of the formal curriculum with a new and dynamic focus on ICT, vocational skills, enterprise training, leadership development and the community. Since 2007 till date, MIND has provided free training for a total of 585 students (male and female) from 5 community schools in River State, in the areas of Digital learning, Vocational skills and Leadership development.

ENGENEERING AND PROCUREMENT Nestoil has today carved a niche for itself as a none stop service provider in the upstream sub-sector of the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry. The company was awarded its first major project by Shell (SPDC); (The Edjeba Sewage Treatment plant in Warri) in 1998. The project was executed successfully and today the plant is still in active use at the SPDC Edjeba complex. It received from SPDC for that project, an award for excellence in quality and safety. This achievement was a significant landmark in the life of the Company and indeed a boost to the nation's local content Initiative. From that point, Nestoil earned its reputation as a local company with world class project execution capacity. Multi-million dollar projects have been rolling in ever since. In the sixteen years of the company's operation in the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry, it has developed human capital capacity and has invested several billions of Naira on equipment acquisition. In terms of equipment and facilities ownership in the industry, Nestoil rank as first among indigenous companies. The company's fabrication yard in Nestoil industrial Area, Abuloma port-Harcourt built by Julius Berger Plc is among the top threat best fabrication yards in Nigeria. Creek- Cawthorn Channel Trunkline replacement Project NCTL from this fabrication yard that was commissioned by the vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Sir, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, GCON in the year 2008. The NCTL project awarded by SPDC to both Nestoil and Saipem involves the laying of a 24 and 30 inch crude oil pipelines over a vast area.

DREDGING OPERATIONS Nestoil's dredging activities via its sister company B&Q Dredging Limited initially commenced as ancillary part of its routine oil and gas contract construction activities. During the implementation of the SPDC Egbeleku Engineered Landfill Construction Contract in delta state, it became necessary to engage in significant dredging works. To this end, the company acquired a 12 inch cutter suction dredger (NNENNA). Subsequently during river crossing activities at its 20"x 38KM KoloCreekRumuekpe trunkline Replacement Project (SPDC), NESTOIL utilised its then newly acquired 18 Cutter suction dredgers (ADAOMA). The dredger was instrumental to the speedy, safe and successful cpmpletion of several complex river and creek crossing activities on the KCTL project.

There are concerns that most indigenous operators may not have the requisite installed capacity to make the Nigerian Content law operable. Do you agree with this and what is the current installed engineering and manpower capapcity of NESTOIL? We don’t agree to this in total. Nigerian Companies have grown in terms of engineering and manpower, but more needs to be done in terms of infrastructure and manpower development. For every company there are stages of growth which have to be nurtured to build requisite installed capacity. These growths are achieved through exposure to more complex projects. Also of major concern is manpower training. How is NESTOIL dealing with this concern? Are there

an you describe the state of B. G. Technical installed capacity before the full implementation of the Nigerian Content Policy from year 2005?

B.G. Technical Limited was 100%owned by Nigerians before the full implementation of the Nigerian Content policy in 2005. How has the implementation of the policy boosted installed capacity and how will the enactment of the Nigerian Content law support your operations? The policy has brought an added awareness of the inherent potentials which abound in B.G. Technical Limited in terms of getting more markets in the services that we render. Financing is a major concern in the industry. How has B.G. Technical Limited been able to surmount this challenge?

projects. What is B. G. Technical Limited doing in the face of dwindling projects from within the industry? B. G. Technical Limited is striving very hard to maintain our existing customers as well as diversifying its capabilities in order to be able to be relevant in various aspects of services we render to our customers. Have you been forced to lay off workers? Not yet. Have you resorted to surviving on bailouts from foreign partners? No Are you satisfied with the current configuration of the NCDMB and its operations or are there areas where you perceive they can do better? Implementation is still in its infancy. We need more time to

B. G. Technical Limited normally relies on self-financing. In other words, revenues earned are ploughed back into current projects and areas of interest. There are concerns that most indigenous operators may not have the requisite installed capacity to make the Nigerian Content law operable. Do you agree with this and what is the current installed engineering and manpower capacity of B. G. Technical Limited? It is a valid concern. However, in B. G. Technical Limited those Concerns are non-existent in that B. G. Technical Limited has demonstrated over time that it has the resources, equipment and personnel, to deliver projects that have safety, quality and value as their core points. Also of major concern is manpower training. How is B. G. Technical Limited dealing with this concern? Are there arrangements in place with foreign entities to facilitate training and possible technology transfer? Yes there are arrangements with both foreign and local entities for training to enhance knowledge and where necessary transfer technology. Inextricably linked to the success of the Nigerian Content law is the steady flow of jobs in the industry. However, following the delay in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill, there appears to be a dearth of investment in

How do you think this will affect implementation of the Nigerian Content law and how do you propose we tackle it? It obviously will affect the implementation of the Nigerian Content law in the sense that projects that would have been created as a result of investments in these areas may be stopped or postponed. How will these Nigerian companies work and earn the revenue that they require to grow and develop their capabilities? In other words, security is probably the most important issue with regards to Nigerian Content.

SCC Nigeria limited Manufacturers of steel pipes In correspondence with Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest for development, SCC Nigeria Limited, an international engineering company, which has been executing projects in Nigeria since 1976, has established a unique pioneering factory to manufacture high helical welded steel pipes. The establishment of the factory was initiated by the combined vision of the Federal Government of Nigeria and SCC Nigeria Limited in realization of the policy to increase local content of manufactured products for projects executed in Nigeria, thereby helping the Government meet its overall objective for development. The factory is capable of manufacturing steel pipes ranging m diameter from 508mm to 3000mm and wall thickness from 4.5 to 20mm, in accordance with customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; requirements Protective coatings and linings are part of the services provided by SCC Nigeria Ltd A program of quality assurance, registered with the American Petroleum Institute (Q1 program), and the International Standards Organization (ISO 9001 2000). is entrenched in SCC process and management systems. The pipe making mill has been equipped with top of the range ultrasonic testing equipment to meet the most stringent requirements of International Oil and Gas Companies

Helical Welded pipe The factory uses the double submerged arc welding process to manufacture helical welded steel pipes The process necessitates helically forming a hotrolled steel strip and welding it internally and externally to create a seam that is much stronger than the parent metal. Edge Milling and helical FormingHot rolled skelp is fed through an edge milling unit where after the edges are pre-formed by an edge rolling process. The skelp is then helically formed between 3 orbital movement roller beds that ensure softer forming of the steel plate.out is controlled by electric laser beams for guaranteed aligned welding even penetration. The hellical mill which was installed in 2002 includes the latest welding and ultrasonic technology for the manufacture of helical welded pipes in accordance with the highest specifications required by leading Oil and Gas companies

Internal and External welding The skelp is internally and externally welded by using two sets of welding heads. The welds seam tracking is by electronic laser been technology and ensures real time consistent weld bead positioning and on seem welding. For other special requirements the weld seam normalize system heats a 30mm wide submerged arc heat affected zone to approximately 1500 degrees Ferenheight. The steel is then completely recrystallised and any martensite formed formed in the welding operation is converted austenite. The hardness of the heat affected zone normally does not exceed the parent metal by more than 30 Brinell hardness after processing.

FINISHING AND FINAL INSPECTION The pipe passes through auxiliary machines for pipe end beveling, hydrostatic pressure test, offline UT equipment meet all requirements of the most stringent specification for oil and gas service pipes. Pipe ends and body are scanned for laminations and 100 percent of the weld is scanned.

ensure the overall fitness of the pipe.

Corrosion, Protection Application Facilities Carbon steel piping invariably exposed to different types of corrosive environment. Our pipes are protected against corrosion using the most advanced technologies available ranging from traditional bitumen glass reinforcement wrapping to Bituseal which is a high performance corrosion protection system.

BITUSEAL Bituseal is a specially formulated primer, enamel and outerwrap which in combination give the best possible performance over a Range of operational conditions. The Bituseal enamel is based on specially selected bitumen , modified with high performance engineering polymers. Preparation of pipes including removal of all surface moiture and the surface profile between 30 and 100 microns is achieved by blasting via wheelabrater. A lathe type machine is used to rotate the pipe.

LIQUID EPOXY LINING After a thorough process of surface preparation is conducted, liquid epoxies both solvent born and solvent free, are applied to the pipe inner surface through a lance and spray nozzle. For solvent free epoxies the 2 components are heated to 60 degree s Celsius using heated water jackets along the lance to the mincing nozzle.

Inspection The pipe passes through auxiliary machines which bevel the pipe ends, hydrostatically tests and x-ray to
