BOG continues to set the pace in Composite Pipe Systems (CPS) in Nigeria. This time, our engineers carried out repair works on 40-inch by 12-inch Glass Fibre Re-inforced Epoxy (GRE) Sea Water Line on Module E (Sky Deck) on ERHA Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility belonging to Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited (EEPNL), an affiliate of ExxonMobil.
A rupture of the 12-inch main sea-water line used for cooling on the facility, necessitated the repairs. As a result of the rupture, production had reduced to 30,000 barrels of crude oil per day as against the full functional production capacity of 130,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
BOG successfully repaired the ruptured lines, helping to restore the ERHA FPSO to full production capacity. This project has further deepened the existing relationship between BOG and ExxonMobil and has re-confirmed BOG’s status as the foremost choice oilfield services firm in composite pipes.
