This was to fill the niche for indigenous professionals to be actively involved in the Oil & Gas, Power, Infrastructures and other industries in order to increase local capacity and to help meet the challenges of creating and sustaining a visible presence and solutions in today’s competitive market.

The Ibom Industrial City project is intended to provide basic infrastructure for various industries such as petrochemical plants, power plant, gas plant, commercial port, recreational and tourist attractions, commercial and residential developments, etc. It is envisioned to be a multi-billion dollar project phased over the next 20-25 years and first of its kind in the country similar to industrial and commercial cities developed in other parts of the world.
3. Kaztec Engineering Limited.
Kaztec Engineering Limited (Kaztec) is one of the fastest-growing engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) companies in Nigeria. Established in 2005, the company has already completed several projects. Kaztec’s breakthrough project came in 2007, when it was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract by the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) to construct a 24-inch diameter, 107-kilometer long gas pipeline to convey gas to a gas fired power plant in Calabar from an offshore gas producing facility in Adanga. Based on its successful performance, Kaztec secured another contract from NDPHC in 2009, to rehabilitate and upgrade its gas metering facilities and perform integrity assessment tests on some of its existing gas pipelines.
In 2010, Kaztec was awarded a contract; TB-1921, by Addax Petroleum Development Nigeria Limited (Addax) to install subsea pipelines and topsides on Oil Mining Lease 123, offshore Calabar. Installing pipelines, risers and other subsea equipment and connecting them to newly-installed platforms and topside facilities required the full support of Kaztec’s fleet, which currently include the Ekulo Cheyenne, Ekulo Tornado, Ekulo Spirit and Ekulo Explorer. Kaztec also utilized remotely operated vehicles and air and saturation diving support in its execution of TB-1921.
Kaztec completed Campaign 2 of the TB-1921 contract in 2011 and started working on Campaign 3 immediately afterwards. By mid-2012, Kaztec and Addax had agreed to work together under an alliance framework based on the success of both Campaigns. The alliance framework entails the collaboration of personnel from Kaztec and Addax in the performance of the engineering, procurement, construction and installation, as opposed to the standard client-contractor relationship. This model ensures that Kaztec continues to develop its capacity as a full EPCI contractor and that TB-1921 projects are completed on-time and below budget.
Kaztec has received ISO 9001:2008 Certification and is currently a member of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM), International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) and Pipeline Professional’s Association of Nigeria (PLAN).
Kaztec is currently developing an oil and gas industrial facility on 531-hectares of land in Snake Island, Lagos. This facility is being developed in stages and when completed will include a fabrication yard, pipe coating facility, pipe mill, engineering base, office space, residential buildings, helipad, among other structures. The company is also acquiring more vessels to support its offshore engineering capabilities.
Kaztec is a subsidiary of the Chrome Group; a conglomerate with many subsidiaries operating in various sectors of the oil and gas industry, such as exploration and production, servicing, petroleum and petroleum products trading, logistics and inspection services.
4. NETCO Limited
National Engineering and Technical Company Limited (NETCO) is Nigeria’s 1st National Engineering Company and is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC). NETCO was established in 1989 as a Joint Venture company (JV) between NNPC and American Bechtel Incorporation, a world renowned engineering company.
NETCO started commercial operations in 1990 to acquire engineering technology through direct involvement in all aspects of engineering in the Oil and Gas industry. NETCO’s strategic vision is to provide Basic / Detailed Engineering, Procurement, Construction Supervision, Project Management, Quality Assurance & Quality Control, Environmental Consulting and Training.

This project was the most technological advanced engineering effort ever undertaken in Nigeria by Nigerians.
The joint venture between NNPC and Bechtel lasted until 1996 when Bechtel exercised its option under the JV agreement and withdrew. NNPC took necessary steps to purchase Bechtel’s shares thereby making NETCO a wholly owned subsidiary with effect May 1st 1997.
Since the exit of Bechtel, NETCO has executed many significant projects and was awarded the prestigious ISO 9001 Quality Certificate in May 2000 by Bureau Veritas Quality International (BVQI). This achievement is the first by any indigenous engineering company in Nigeria. BVQI also went ahead to award NETCO its prestigious 1SO 14001 Environmental Management System in 2004.
