NETCO COMMENCES EXECUTION OF NGPTC FEED FOR 5.5KM PROJECT

Nigerian Gas Processing and Transportation Company (NGPTC) Limited, a subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), awarded to NETCO the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for 5.5km x 24” Gas Pipeline from OB / OB to OB3 Central Transfer and Metering Station (CTMS), with associated facilities to deliver natural gas to OB3 Gas Pipeline (under construction).

The project scope of work is Front End Engineering Design (FEED) of the following:

  • 5.5km x 24’’ Gas Pipeline from Ob / Ob to OB3 CTMS

  • Pig launcher at Ob / Ob.

  • Pig receiver at OB3 CTMS

  • Cathodic Protection of the entire Pipeline system.

  • SCADA and Telecommunications system.

    The proposed pipeline will enable the delivery of gas for the commissioning of the on-going OB3 gas pipeline. This gas supply project will enable NGPTC to realize its strategic business objective of increased revenue and will also impact positively on the achievement of the set National agenda for domestic gas utilization and industrialization.

 

The project kick off meeting was held in NETCO, Feyide House, 23, Engineering Close, off Idowu Taylor Street, Victoria Island on Tuesday February 28, 2017 to stream line the project aims and objectives.  The forum also afforded the client and NETCO rub minds with a view to delivering the project on time and in a most friendly manner.

 

To satisfy the client and deliver an excellent project to the satisfaction of all, NETCO has assembled a team of experience engineers in Pipeline, Process, Piping, Civil Structure, Technical, Health Safety & Environment, Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation & Control Systems, Corrosion & Material and other resources to fast track the execution of the project to completion within the ten (10) weeks handover of the final package.

Activities were broken into Time Line as follows:

  • Sourcing of Design Information     -      From First (1st) Day of Kick off

  • Site Visit Survey                           -      From First (1st) Week of Kick off

  • MDR                                             -      Second (2nd) Week of Kick off

  • PMS                                             -      Second (2nd) Week of Kick off

  • Engineering Deliverables:             -      IDC, IFR & AFD

  • Cost Estimate                               -      Ten (10) Weeks from Kick off

  • Final Package:                             -       Ten (10) Weeks from Kick off

 

To be able to give informed opinion on the project two (2) NETCO engineers visited the project site survey at OB / OB and OB3 CTMS with three (3) NGPTC personnel on Thursday and Friday March 9 & 10, 2017 for design data gathering.  The project is currently being progressed with the expertise of NETCO engineers in conjunction with NGPTC engineers working in collaboration to deliver the project to time and within budget.
