Subsea contractor Ceona plans to strengthen its presence in West Africa after signing a strategic partnership deal with Interoil Angola Lda
Interoil Angola’s partnership with Ceona will see it support plans for the firm to expand in Angola, according to Interoil.
Ceona is currently active in West Africa through its Ceona-Seaweld joint venture in Ghana, in addition to the company’s strategic partnership with Marine Platforms Limited in Nigeria, the firm stated.
Established in Luanda and with a yard in Sonils, Interoil Angola’s business focuses mainly on managing support vessels in-country, the company said.
“Interoil Angola is a well-established company and an approved supplier by the major operators in the region. It is also one of the few Angolan organisations that has a licence for vessel management,” stated Bill Hickie, Ceona’s VP business development.
“Partnering with them enables Ceona to officially enter the Angolan market, where our flagship Ceona Amazon vessel is highly suited for work offshore and at the same time continue to grow our strong footprint across West Africa.”
