About Us


Bailey Bridges Nigeria Limited (BBNL) is an oilfield service company established in 1986 that specializes in providing specialized marine transport solutions to the oil and gas industry for access to onshore and shallow water oilfield locations.  The company secured its first contract with Shell in 1992 to design, supply and install prefabricated steel bridges at several locations for access to onshore oil field locations. In 1996, BBNL diversified into supply and operations of inland and offshore vessels to the oil industry and acquired its first pontoon ferry vessel with the signing of a three year contract with Nigeria Agip Oil Company (NAOC). Today BBNL’s primary business is to provide marine transport and offshore support services for the oil and gas industry.
