GPPSL acquires new equipment, targets upcoming pipeline projects
Global Process and Pipeline Services Limited (GPPSL), a Nigerian company focused solely on process and pipeline services, has acquired three flooding pumps with the capacity of 3,150 USG per minute and close to 600 PSI each, to service the oil and gas sector.
“They are high pressure, high volume and no other company can boast of such flooding pumps in West Africa”, chief executive officer of GPPSL, Obi Uzu, said on the sideline of the just concluded 2019 Nigerian Oil & Gas (NOG) conference and exhibition held in Abuja.
Nigeria is on the verge of completing the 48-inch pipeline – the Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano (AKK) pipeline, and there are also plans for another big pipeline project that will run from Nigeria to North Africa.
“Those are massive projects that will need our kind of equipment. Besides, there is also a requirement for big pipeline services in-country”, Uzu said.
GPPSL also acquired 6 Air Loaders which include pneumatic suction pumps for cleaning of floating production and offloading (FPSO) tanks. The FPSOs will require cleaning according to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) related regulation.
“We have gone ahead to make these massive investments to keep the game alive – those clients we have been working for are happy but we want to make sure that they are happier with the services they are getting today and in future compared to what they got yesterday”
The GPPSL chief executive said that the company is also investing in organizational process and sustainable human resources.
According to him, “we are pursuing new operational certification ahead of ISO-9001-2015 which we have received already. We are getting into an integrated management system (IMS) certification that will look at our Environmental, HSE and Quality compliance all together to make sure we improve on all our processes”.
On the human resources, he said that the company developed “what we call the “Career Tree” plan for our personnel – thus when you join from the root of the company, as you are growing, you can see the branch available for you to go and concentrate on that” or branch out along the way depending on your interest and performance.
