    Projects and Operations // July 27, 2001
    Stolt Offshore has been awarded a contract by Shell Petroleum Development Company Nigeria for the offshore pipelay associated with the construction of the Shell Offshore Gas Gathering System.

    The contract, which was awarded to a consortium of Stolt Offshore and DSNL, a subsidiary of the Adamac group of companies in Nigeria, is valued at $135 million to Stolt Offshore.

    The construction of the Offshore Gas Gathering System (OGGS) involves the installation of 88km of 24in pipeline from Forcados/Yokri to the Bonga OGGS Riser Platform and 18km of 16in pipeline from South Forcados to the Bonga OGGS Riser Platform. A 264km 32in trunkline, including 8km onshore, to connect to the Bonny Island Liquid Natural Gas plant, will also be installed. This is the largest trunkline to be constructed offshore West Africa to date.

    Pipelay operations will begin in the third quarter of 2002 following the landfall works. Adamac will construct the onshore receiving facilities as well as providing pipe coating, storage and loading services from their base in Port Harcourt.
