 JDR to open a service and maintenance base in Port Harcourt, Nigeria

JDR has expanded its presence in West Africa through a partnership agreement with Proserv Instrumentation Nigeria.

Under the strategic alliance, JDR will establish a service and maintenance base in Proserv’s operations facility in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

Together, the companies will offer combined subsea solutions and local content support to the West African market. JDR’s offering will include maintenance and offshore installation services, product termination and testing and technical training, the company explained.

Carl Pilmer, sales director for oil and gas at JDR, said: “This alliance will enable JDR to increase local content support for projects in Nigeria and the wider region. We’re proud to work alongside Proserv to better service our clients with integrated solutions and develop the local skills needed to execute projects.”

Olu Phillips, Proserv country manager based in Lagos, added: “Nigeria is a key growth market for Proserv and given the very dynamic opportunities in the region, we are delighted to formalize our working relationship with JDR with the signing of this new strategic alliance.”

The partnership follows the appointment of business development manager, Tai Fadipe-Davids last year, to lead JDR’s strategic sales and marketing activities in the region.

JDR, a UK-based supplier of subsea umbilicals and power cables to the offshore energy industry, has been awarded a contract for intervention, workover and control systems (IWOCS) by the subsea division of Aker Solutions. The project which is scheduled for delivery in summer 2016 will include the first deployment of JDR’s ‘Mark II Reeler’ concept.

The scope of supply includes two 1,200 m umbilicals, which provide annulus circulation function to subsea systems. Both umbilicals will be supplied on JDR’s new ‘Mark II Reeler’ technology. The new reeler design will provide customers with a significant reduction in size versus conventional reelers, saving deck space, as well as a lower weight for lifting and handling. The reeler, which has no impact on umbilical capacity, will also lower costs due to reduced materials. In addition, the new design includes a number of key safety features, such as improved operator access and compliance with DNV lifting requirements.

“JDR has collaborated with customers to create a custom engineered reeler design that provides a number of operational benefits. In addition, the new design provides easier access to control panels within the reeler, enabling safer operations offshore,” David Currie, CEO of JDR, said.

The umbilicals will be manufactured at JDR’s state of the art facility in Littleport, UK, while the reelers will be designed and manufactured at JDR’s facility in Newcastle, UK, before delivery to JDR’s Littleport facility for in-house integration and testing.
