OKLNG (a joint venture between BG international, Shell, Chevron and NNPC) was seeking to create a new LNG export plant in a remote location within a very tight timescale.  The greenfield project site straddles the borders of the states of Ogun and Ondo, approximately midway between Escravos and Lagos.​

Originally, the dedicated marine facilities of the project for product loading included berths suitable for LNG and refrigerated LPG carriers, an 8 km jetty and single point mooring buoy for loading condensate. The LNG/LPG berth required protection by a breakwater. 

Royal HaskoningDHV was contracted to perform the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) for both the Marine Facilities as well as Site Preparation. ​

As well as design of the LNG facilities, our responsibilities included the preparation of a Breakwater Study Report, the organisation and supervision of laboratory testing of the breakwater and site inspections of quarries and other potential sources of rock for breakwater construction.​

During a subsequent value engineering process, our team assisted the client in further fine-tuning and optimising the facilities to drive down costs and programme.
