Project Story

We are absolutely thrilled to share that CUMIC, with deep commitment and attentiveness, contributed to a pivotal oil project in Nigeria, where we supplied 6308 MT of steel sheet pile S430GP for the construction of onshore oil and gas platform. To ensure the utmost quality and reliability of our materials, we conducted thorough inspections at multiple stages, including in the factory, during the charging process, and upon arrival at the port. This project is proudly owned by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Sterling Oil Exploration and Energy Production Company (SEEPCO).


In 2019, NNPC and SEEPCO entered into a substantial 15-year agreement valued at $3.15 billion, with the aim of developing Oil Mining Lease (OML) 13. This oil block, situated in Akwa Ibom State within Nigeria's oil-rich Niger Delta region, is of significant importance. It is estimated to hold a remarkable reserve of over 900 million barrels of oil and a staggering 5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.


The development of OML 13 is more than just harnessing these vast resources; it signifies the collaborative efforts of NNPC, SEEPCO, and the Akwa Ibom state government to bring about substantial economic benefits to local communities and to boost Nigeria's oil production capacity and reserves. OML 13 is pivotal to the growth of Nigeria's oil and gas industry.


Steel Sheet Pile

  • Strength and Durability: In the demanding maritime environment like an onshore oil rig, the structural integrity of the rig is paramount. Steel sheet pile can withstand high loads, impacts, and extreme weather conditions, ensuring the longevity of the structure.

  • Load-Bearing Capacity: It can provide a stable and secure foundation for the rig. They can effectively distribute the weight and prevent settling or sinking.

  • Ease of Installation: It can be driven into the ground quickly, reducing construction time and labor requirements.

  • Corrosion Resistance: Steel sheet piles can be coated with corrosion-resistant materials or treated to withstand corrosion, standing through harsh environmental conditions, including saltwater, moisture, and corrosive chemicals

In partnership with our valued client, we are making significant strides in advancing Nigeria's energy sector. The OML 13 also contributes to economic growth, regional development, and national progress. We remain resolute in our mission to provide top-quality steel solutions that empower critical initiatives. Together, we are shaping a brighter and more prosperous future for oil and gas industry and the communities it serves!
