Saipem in the Country

Saipem is present in Nigeria since the late 1960s and has been involved in all Country’s major developments as one of the few international contractors able to operate maximizing the local content, ensuring business sustainability and therefore fulfilling the Country requirements.


The Egina project implementation plan confirms Saipem’s strong commitment to Local Content in the Country. The vast majority of fabrication works will indeed be performed at Saipem’s Rumuorlumeni Yard in Port Harcourt, that will be also used as a logistics base. The entire Egina project is run from Saipem Contracting Nigeria’s premises in Lagos, and most of the engineering is being performed in Nigeria. One of the main goals of the entire project is to prioritise the use of local vendors.
