Rockwell Automation increases its presence in African oil & gas with Nigeria LNG control upgrade

Rockwell Automation continues to grow its oil & gas footprint in Africa, with new control and visualisation products supplied to Nigeria LNG’s liquefied natural gas plant.

“With Rockwell Automation products already used by Nigeria LNG for the in-plant automation, this new contract further entrenches Rockwell Automation as a leading provider of industrial automation solutions in Africa’s burgeoning oil & gas markets,” explains Ahmad Tayel, Oil & Gas, Account Manager, Rockwell Automation Sub-Saharan Africa.

Nigeria LNG’s scope of work included the upgrade of SCADA and control equipment. The Rockwell Automation Mining Solution interfaces with a Wonderware SCADA. Upgrades were executed with minimal disruptions to plant uptime and will play a critical role in maintaining production stability and significantly extending Nigeria LNG’s plant life.


“In light of both the complexities surrounding the demands of project management and documentation support allied to the critical nature plant processes being automated, Rockwell Automation provides a high degree of project reliability, coupled with strong domain expertise and one of the largest teams of control and electrical engineers on the continent,” Tayel concludes.

Rockwell Automation also supports liquefied natural gas projects elsewhere in Africa, including Angola, where ongoing support and training contracts are currently in place.

By extending its collaboration with Nigeria LNG, Rockwell Automation is affirming its position as one of the dominant industrial automation solutions providers for Africa’s oil & gas producers in Nigeria and Angola.
