J P Kenny & MCS Kenny Complete First Full Subsea FEED in Nigeria
20 July 2010Leading international subsea engineering companies, J P Kenny and MCS Kenny, part of Wood Group, alongside Nigerian engineering company Dover Engineering, are completing the first comprehensive Front End Engineering Design (FEED) undertaken locally in Nigeria for the Total Egina Field development in deepwater, offshore Nigeria.
Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd awarded the subsea FEED to Dover Engineering in July 2009, and Dover contracted J P Kenny and MCS Kenny to support the project delivery. The subsea scope of work included comprehensive design studies and engineering assessments, development of specifications, documentation and technology studies, relating to the design of the umbilicals, flowlines, risers and the subsea production systems for the Egina Development.
"To complete the full FEED for the Egina Field, including for the FPSO and the subsea systems, in-country is a major achievement for the Nigerian oil and gas industry", said Dover's Managing Director, Eloka Ejeh.
Samir Ounnas, Project Manager, J P Kenny, Lagos added, "A team of J P Kenny, MCS Kenny and local Dover engineers worked more than 60,000 manhours in-country on the project. In addition to this being the first FEED work undertaken in Nigeria, it is also the first major subsea project that J P Kenny has completed in-country and it has been a great success. We aim to undertake further major projects in-country in the future."
