Flare Tip Replacement Offshore Nigeria
At the end of June 2014, one of Conbit’s specialist lifting crews replaced the flare tip on the OFON2 complex, offshore Nigeria. A team of 5 people completed the job within a limited shutdown period.
The OFON field is located in block OML 102, approximately 45 km off the southeast coast of Nigeria at a depth of approximately 40 metres. The field, initially brought into production in 1997, is owned by the Joint Venture NNPC/TEPNG and is operated by Total E&P Nigeria Limited (TEPNG). Ponticelli, a French EPC contractor, is responsible for maintaining the facility.
The Nigerian branch of Ponticelli awarded the flare tip replacement contract to Conbit, after another special lifting company refused to carry out the job. Conbit was happy to accept the challenge and was able to mobilise crew and equipment at short notice. The client was very satisfied with Conbit’s performance and the path is clear for further cooperation.
