Afren to install new offshore pipeline in Nigeria
LAGOS, November 14, 2014 – West African Ventures, a subsidiary of the international Sea Trucks Group, announced on Friday it would begin installation of a 60-kilometre offshore pipeline in February 2015. The project was awarded to the group by London-headquartered exploration and production company Afren.
