PRESS RELEASE: Viper Innovations Celebrates Continued Success in Nigeria, in Collaboration with Cranium Engineering Limited

October 18, 2023

Viper Innovations and Cranium Engineering are celebrating the success of their collaboration in a recent deployment of Viper’s award-winning V-LIFE technology on a major deepwater operator’s asset in Nigeria. The operator reported seeing the benefits of V-LIFE’s technology for recovering low insulation resistance (IR), which responded quickly to increase the IR level on the channel and mitigated a loss of production.

Viper Innovations signed a marketing and distribution agreement in 2022 with Cranium Engineering, a leading provider of engineering solutions for the African offshore industry, providing project management and specialist engineering services in a range of core areas. The arrangement has enabled Viper to enhance its relationship with clients in Nigeria to bring the benefits of Viper’s cutting-edge insulation resistance monitoring and recovery technology to the Nigerian market.

Nigeria is one of a number of key global markets for Viper, where expanding upon previous successful deployments of V-LIFE in the region presents an attractive opportunity for growth in the region. The OEC reports that in 2021 Nigeria’s 1st most exported product was Crude Petroleum with $41.8B’s worth exported; resulting in the country ranking as the 7th largest exporter in the world. Investing in technology such as Viper’s award-winning control system monitoring and recovery solutions to ensure that operators in the region can ensure continued production of their critical assets is key.

Sola Adekunle, CEO of Cranium Engineering, expressed his satisfaction with the successful V-LIFE deployment, stating, “Our first V-LIFE deployment in Nigeria’s Deepwater assets is in line with our mission to provide technology-driven, cost-saving, safe, and effective solutions across Africa. Our customer was extremely pleased with how the V-LIFE application worked and has given us the opportunity to continue to provide V-LIFE services on their assets.”

James Carnegie, Sales and Delivery Director at Viper Innovations, added, “The Viper Innovation team is excited to work with Cranium Engineering to introduce our technology into this region. It is very satisfying to get such great reviews from a new customer, demonstrating the benefits of our technology to enhance production and mitigate insulation resistance and electrical integrity issues.
