Because of the ever increasing demand for fresh water, mainly coming from the development of new oil-related areas, a special water well departement was set up to meet the demand in 1994.

Since then, a specially trained and dedicaded drilling team has been established and technically advanced and innovative drilling rigs have been made available to the country. This departement covers design, development and construction activities, offering the most updated know-how and technology for modem drilling requirements. Among the project completed, a special mention should be made to the execution of the entire water scheme in the LNG Project, Bonny Island.
