In continuation of BOG’s drive for the expansion of local capacity and continuous development of local content in the oil and gas industry, we are currently spearheading a campaign that will culminate in the establishment of an OCTG threading mill in-country.
To this end, representatives of BOG’s technical partner, Shanghai Fanzhenglong, recently visited BOG to carry out market assessment and site location analysis.
During this visit, representatives of Shanghai Fanzhenglong and BOG visited the Lekki Free Trade Zone and also the Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL) Free Zone for site location analysis.
A couple of key industry stakeholders in the Nigeria oil and gas industry were equally visited. The stakeholders received the representatives of Shanghai Fanzhenglong warmly and were keen to see OCTG being manufactured locally.
The future of the OCTG business looks very promising as the threading mill will set the pace for local OCTG production in the country.
