Dorman Long Engineering Limited, an indigenous company, has loaded out 2,000tonnes Conductor Supported Platform, fabricated by Dorman Long Engineering Limited, for the development of Madu oilfields in the Oil Mining Lease, OML, 85.

The facility was constructed for an indigenous oil exploration and producing company, First E&P, which operates a joint venture with the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited.

The wellhead platform, constructed by Nigerians would be used to produce more than 44,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

According to the Managing Director, First E&P, Mr. Ademola Adeyemi Bero, said Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria, PETAN, were involved in the project.

Similarly, the Chairman of Dorman Long Engineering Limited, Dr. Timi Austen-Peters, who commended the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, First E&P and others, said the platform is wholly indigenous.

Rear Admiral Ibrahim Hamza, Admin Superintendent of the Nigerian Naval Dockyard; Rear Admiral Ayo Olubode, CEO, Admiralty Maritime Services; General Manager of NAPIMS, an NNPC subsidiary, Mr. Duduwaya Zakariya; and PETAN’s Vice Chairman, Mr. Ranti Omole, and others were present at the event.

According to the company, “Dorman Long Engineering Limited was established in 1949. Dorman Long is a leading Oilfield Equipment, Structural Steel, Marine Structures Engineering, and Fabrication Company.

“Dorman Long has contributed to Nigeria’s industrial and infrastructure development with steel fabrication and erection services. Historic landmark projects which Dorman Long has been involved in include the Niger Bridge which crosses from Delta State into Anambra State at Asaba/Onitsha. Dorman Long has also provided structural steelworks for many Industrial buildings constructed from the 1950s to the early 1970s in Ikeja – Lagos State and Trans-Amadi Industrial Estate in Rivers State.

“Today, Dorman Long continues to play a leading role in meeting the needs of the Oil and Gas, Telecommunications Power and other heavy industries by providing a ready local supply of international standard products and services which previously could only be obtained as imports.

“Dorman Long operates out of three (3) yards in Lagos. Our historical head office at Idi-Oro, our galvanizing plant at Agege and our waterfront facility at the Nigerian Naval Dockyard (NND), Victoria Island. All these are fully equipped fabrication yards with the capacity to deliver world class fabrication service.”
