Prysmian wins submarine cable interconnection contract for French offshore wind farms

  On February 22, Simbi Wabote, Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) stated,

  The committee will prohibit imported wires and cables for domestic oil and gas projects. Wabote made the above remarks during the evaluation of the three ultra-modern wire and cable manufacturing plants of Coleman Technology Industries. Wabote said: "We are no longer allowed to import any cables for the oil and gas industry. Similarly, all pipelines need to be coated domestically, and the import of wires and cables for the oil industry will be prohibited.

  This is the only way to ensure that local companies operate and workers continue to work. "

  Wabote pointed out that international oil companies and other companies will need to purchase wires and cables from Nigeria for oil and gas projects.

  Wabote said, “We will follow the policy statement issued here today. Nigeria will not import any wires and cables required for oil and gas projects. Even if local manufacturers cannot meet the product quality and standards required by the project, we will ensure that oil and gas companies and Local manufacturers cooperate to meet standard requirements." Coleman Technology Industries Co., Ltd. CEO George Onafowokan had earlier urged NCDMB to ensure that international oil companies increase patronage to local wire and cable manufacturers. According to Onafowokan, Coleman Technology Industries’ 200,000-square-meter factory has an annual production capacity of 48,000 metric tons of copper and 24,000 metric tons of aluminum, which enables the company to control over 80% of Nigeria’s wire and cable production capacity, accounting for approximately 50% of West Africa’s production capacity.

  The Sagamu plant of Coleman Technology Industries started production of medium and high voltage XLPE cables in December 2014. This plant is the first of its kind in West Africa, and its capacity makes Nigeria rank sixth in Africa. Despite the huge investment, Onafowokan said that International Petroleum Corporation and other exploration and production contractors operating in Nigeria are not interested in it.

  Onafowokan regrets that the high, medium and low voltage cables used in the Akpo Floating Production Storage Unit, USAN Floating Production Storage Unit and Egina Floating Production Storage Unit project are all manufactured by overseas companies, which violates local content laws. Provisions. "In addition, the NLNG Marine LNG carrier project of the Nigeria LNG Company includes 6 vessels and imports about US$400,000 in cables, which is far from enough for one vessel. Most of the cables are made in South Korea." Onafowokan added. He pointed out that although a local cable company participated in the development of the umbilical cord system of the Egina Floating Production Storage Unit operated by Total. However, so far, this process has not been realized, and Nigerians have been deceived again.

  Therefore, in accordance with the spirit of the local content law, Onafowokan urged NCDMB to promote the patronage of local-made cables by international oil companies and their project operators. He also urged NCDMB to ensure that local wire and cable manufacturers can participate in the NAE deep-sea project under construction operated by Saaben Contracting Company and the Bangka Oilfield/Apalo project operated by Samsung Heavy Industries.
