Africa focused oil and gas firm, Eunisell has restated its commitment to support local content in the oil and gas industry, particularly among marginal field operators in the country, with a view to early production in oil and gas marginal fields.

Patrick O’Callaghan stated that the changing times in the oil and gas industry now requires companies to embrace partnership, and innovation, if they must are to stay profitable. “The dwindling oil price is a major topic here today, companies are cutting cost and so the modus operandi has to change in many ways as finance, cash flow, releasing value from stranded assets, have become some of major concerns of operators today.  This is one of the reasons we are at the conference and exhibition to show stakeholders our central production facility which was built for Network E&P in a record time of 90 days from which significant quantities of oil from the field have been produced within the last 5 months”


He further explained, that a combination of modular construction processes and lease, operate, and own agreement has been a good choice for the field owner who is reaping the benefits of a producing asset while spreading the capital costs required.


“During the option period, the operator enjoys a reliable operation, gains valuable insight into his production profile, and can effectively manage his cost of managing, operating, and running the facility. This provides the opportunity to build equity that can be invested in adding additional assets”. O’Callaghan added that about a month ago, the company recorded 100,000 man hours at one of its facilities without any loss time incident which he attributed to the professionalism, quality of staff and a sound health and safety policy of the company.
