Under the strategic alliance between the two companies, JDR will establish a service and maintenance base in Proserv’s operations facility in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. In partnership, the companies will offer combined subsea solutions and local content support to the West African market. JDR will carry out maintenance and offshore installation services, product termination and testing and technical training.

Carl Pilmer, sales director for oil and gas at JDR, comments: “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.

“Almost every project in the deepwater basins off West Africa includes a JDR-supplied umbilical and this partnership marks the next step in our strategic plan to offer our customers high quality, reliable products and services on a global scale.” 

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

“Proserv has worked well with JDR for many years and this partnership will allow us to build on our long and successful track record through the delivery of world class subsea technology solutions and services to our customers in Nigeria, strengthening Proserv’s presence in the country.”

In recent years, JDR has supplied complex intervention, workover control systems (IWOCS) to major developments including Egina, Kaombo and Moho Nord in Nigeria, Angola and Congo respectively. JDR also delivered a hybrid steel umbilical to the ABO 12 field offshore Nigeria, and has since invested in a technical test and repair container for umbilical and reeler management.
