Boskalis acquires LNG - contract in Nigeria

Date: 31 October 2007

Royal Boskalis Westminster nv has received a contract for some 60 million from energy company Brass LNG Limited, a joint venture between NNPC, ENI, ConocoPhillips and Total, for the development of the "Brass LNG"-gas project in Nigeria.

The project focus includes the site construction for the new large-scale Brass LNG production and export facilities. Boskalis is responsible for both the design and the execution of the early soil improvement works as well as the related infrastructure. The objective is to strengthen the site's ground to allow future construction of heavy tanks. The sand for the soil improvement will be sourced from an onshore sandpit. Boskalis will deploy heavy duty equipment of its subsidiary Cofra (for vertical drains) to accelerate the consolidation process. The project will be executed in approximately one year starting October 2007.
