RusselSmith receives Approval in Nigeria for industrial 3D Manufacturing Solution in Oil and Gas Industry

The Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC) recently approved RusselSmith to deploy its industrial non-metallic additive manufacturing solution in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.

This RusselSmith additive manufacturing solution uses advanced 3D printing technology to produce fully functional and corrosion-resistant industrial components on site. The time required is significantly less than if oil and gas companies were to order such parts through traditional supply chain methods. In addition to significant time and cost savings, this allows companies to significantly reduce their carbon footprint and make their operations more efficient.

In collaboration with Roboze, a well-known provider of industrial 3D printing systems, RusselSmith’s manufacturing solution aims to not only address current supply chain challenges in the region, but also drive manufacturing in Nigeria through technology innovation.

Speaking on the approval, RusselSmith’s CEO, Kayode Adeleke said, “This is a new milestone in the Nigerian energy sector, and we are excited to be leading the charge in industrial 3D manufacturing. We are also proud that the NUPRC has once again exhibited its role in the industry as not just a regulator, but a facilitator of business in Nigeria. We are building the foundation for a digital supply chain across Africa, and this is just the beginning. With this approval, our non-metallic additive manufacturing solution is now operational and available to service the needs of the Nigerian market”.

RusselSmith’s solution uses high-performance materials such as superpolymers and composites. Such superpolymers are particularly suitable because they can withstand extreme conditions without compromising their functionality and desired properties.

“We at Roboze are proud to be associated with this innovative development,” said Alessio Lorusso, CEO of Roboze. “The approval by the NUPRC for the use of this additive manufacturing technology is a significant step forward for Nigeria’s energy sector in embracing digitalization, and we are fully committed to supporting our partner, RusselSmith, with our expertise and global network to ensure the success of this solution.”

With this approval and Roboze’s support, RusselSmith is well positioned to further develop and establish best practices for industrial 3D printing in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
