The venture is being operated by Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria (SPDC) on behalf of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (55%), Shell (30%), Total (10%) and Agip (5%). When complete around 2010 – 2011 it will at its peak produce one billion standard cubic feet of gas a day and more than 70,000 barrels of oil a day.

Roxtec has started supplying multi cable transit seals for the project. UK managing director Graham O’Hare said: “Roxtec has an established track record in the oil and gas sector. Our UK operation has played a key role in securing this deal cultivating our contacts in London, one of the world centres of the oil industry.”

O’Hare said Roxtec worked on both the electrical and instrumentation packages. “This particular contract involved special Electro Magnetic Compatibility ( EMC ) products,” he said. “These EMC products provide shielding in the SIS and sub-stations against electrical spikes in the air. In addition, the seals will also protect equipment from a further range of hazards including fire, explosion, flooding, vibration and dust.”

Roxtec UK’s products can be found in a number of high profile oil and gas projects including the Pearl GTL project in Qatar and Sakhalin Island in Russia.

O’Hare said Roxtec is keen to work with electrical, mechanical or instrument engineers who want to provide better protection for cables and pipes.

“More and more industries are turning to Roxtec to protect their people, buildings and assets,” he said. “We pride ourselves on a problem solving mentality. We work in a wide range of industries across the globe including construction, energy, telecoms and marine.”
