James Fisher Subsea Excavation launches in Nigeria

Global controlled flow excavation specialist James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE), part of the James Fisher & Sons PLC group, has completed its first project in Nigeria and established a base in the country.

Tools will be permanently based in Port Harcourt to service clients in Nigeria’s mixed, strong energy industry providing cost-effective, rapid, local solutions.

A team of six experts deployed JFSE’s Twin R2000 tool off the coast of Forcados for its client, a pioneer and leader of the petroleum industry. The six-week project involved post-lay trenching of 20” pipeline and backfilling.

Stuart Porteous, senior business development manager said:

“Through a number of conversations with subsea companies in Nigeria, we identified a need for our CFE services to improve efficiencies in the excavation of pipelines and cables for initial installation and IRM activities.

“Securing a base and permanently stationing tools in-country shows our commitment to developing our relationships with new clients in the region by offering a rapid response and cost-effective solutions for their excavation requirements.”

JFSE forms part of the larger James Fisher Nigeria team, supporting local expertise and delivery of support services to the Nigerian energy markets. James Fisher Nigeria’s range of services include floating and fendering products, hose management solutions and general rig air compressor solutions.

Kenneth R Mackie, managing director at JFSE, said:

“We are committed to growing our footprint both in response to, and in anticipation of, client demand.

“Our expert team and innovative technologies and services are unique in the subsea excavation marketplace and we look forward to delivering further successful projects in Nigeria in 2019.”
