Chevron celebrates Sonam, Meren project milestone

Chevron Nigeria Limited has recorded another significant milestone in the accomplishment of its Meren Gas Gathering Compression Platform (GGCP) and Sonam Development project objectives for 2014.

Mr. Supo Shadiya, Director of Chevron Nigeria Limited, who represented the Management of the firm at the Ready-For-Load-Out (RTLO) Sonam NWP jacket ceremony, which held at Nigerdock, recently, hailed the project as one of the efforts Chevron has made towards Nigerian Content Development and Gas commercialization.

His words: “At CNL, we are committed to Nigerian Content Development not just because it is the law but also because it is the right thing to do and part of the way we operate”.

The Sonam project covers approximately 4,600 metric tons of fabrication work, including the Topsides, Jackets, Piles and Bridge – at the Nigerdock fabrication yard. It is one of CNL’s non-associated gas projects aimed at supporting the Federal Government’s Gas Master Plan. The project also supports the upgrade of Nigerdock’s Fabrication Yard in the country. It involves the subcontracting of fabrication of four (4) vessels and numerous pipe-spools to Dormanlong, an indigenous company.

Nigerdock Group Executive Director (GED), Mr. Mansour Jarmakani, who spoke at the event, said that his company was proud to be associated with the Meren Gas Gathering Compression Platform (GGCP) and Sonam Development project, which is said to be one of the biggest Non-Associated Gas (NAG) projects in Nigeria.

“The Meren Gas Gathering Compression Platform (GGCP) and Sonam Development project created jobs, trained thousands, and is being delivered safely and on time, this is a national achievement,” he said.

Mr. Jarmakani also added that through mentorship and the training of many Nigerians, the project has substantially contributed towards addressing the paucity of manpower; a key challenge in the industry.
