Drydocks World recently held a steel-cutting ceremony to commence production on the single point mooring buoy 'Lekki SPM Project', which is planned to be installed in the petroleum product handling facility at the Lekki Free Trade Zone in Lagos in Nigeria.

Orwell has successfully secured the contract for the fabrication which includes the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) basis and installation of the Buoy by Pinnacle Oil & Gas, aiming to develop the petroleum product handling facility in Nigeria.

The Buoy is 16.5 metres in diameter and 10.6 metres high, weighing around 290 tonnes. The work on the project will require around 110,000 man hours to complete the fabrication and testing works.

Drydocks World Dubai's scope of fabrication includes: bulk procurement, fabrication engineering, assembly, machining, inspection, mechanical completion, testing, and load-out of the SPM Buoy. The project is scheduled to be delivered by the end of the first quarter of 2021.

When completed, the proposed mooring facilities will transfer petroleum products through pipelines between the offshore mooring facilities and the onshore storage terminal. The Lekki SPM Project will be certified in line with the requirements of the ABS Rules for Building and Classing Single Point Moorings 2014.

Rado Antolovic, CEO of Drydocks World, said: "Drydocks World has a strong track record in delivering complicated and challenging offshore projects with an excellent safety and quality level. These have positioned our yard as a global specialist with expertise in delivering large-scale projects of significant complexity."

Antolovic added: "Orwell Offshore has awarded this project to our Dubai yard based on our track record and the depth of the team's understanding. We look forward to further strengthening our partnership and collaborating with Orwell Offshore, for whom we have already delivered a number of major projects."
