Ensuring a Slippery Smooth Expansion of an Oily Affair in Sudan
On average, the Melut Basin produces about 200,000 barrels of oil per day and it is expected that it will increase to 500,000 barrels per day. That is the amount of oil that Melut Basin is able to come up. The Melut Basin produces the oil and readies them for shipment and export from the Peace Port and the cost hits a total of 1.7 billion dollars!
In 2005, Bentini NF Energy, a joint-venture company between Bentini of Italy and the Malaysian based Nam Fatt Corporation, an EPC contractor, was awarded a contract to build six pumping facilities for the Melut Basin Development Project in Blocks 3 and 7 in the Upper Nile and White Nile states.
Nam Fatt Energy decided to give the freight and logistics portion to us, where a total of approximately 300 FEUs of Shippers Owned General Purpose and Open-Top containers were supplied and utilized for the shipment of the materials from Malaysia to Sudan.
About 20 units of Light Construction equipment were shipped by part-charter vessel to Port Sudan during the mobilization stage.
In addition, we arranged for 2 air-charters of Antonov 124 from Shanghai to Sudan for the delivery of an urgent oilwell equipment which relates to this project in particular.
