FMC Technologies has commissioned its first subsea production tree built entirely in Nigeria.

The equipment, manufactured for Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Ltd. (SNEPCo) Bonga Northwest project, marks the company’s first subsea equipment engineered, manufactured, tested, installed and serviced entirely in the country.

Oil production from the first well at the Bonga Northwest deepwater development off the Nigerian coast began on August 5, 2014. Four oil producing wells and two water injection wells in the Bonga Northwest Phase 1 development will be connected to the Bonga Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel from where oil is loaded onto tankers for shipping around the world. FMC Technologies is providing the subsea production systems to support the development which is led by Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Ltd. (SNEPCo).

Speaking at an event in Lagos to celebrate this achievement, Shelagh Daley, the Area Manager of FMC Technologies Africa Region Subsea said: “We have been working with SNEPCo to supply subsea systems for the Bonga Northwest development since 2010. This local manufacturing of equipment marks a significant milestone for the company and for the country’s energy industry.
