Baker Hughes, a GE company, has announced the inauguration of its multimodal facility (MMF) for oil and gas in Luanda, Angola
The facility will serve as a hub to support customers and projects in Angola and southern Africa region, and will also serve customers on a global scale.
The strategic location for this multipurpose facility puts BHGE in close proximity to serve important projects in the region.
The Luanda facility will service BHGE’s product company capabilities in oilfield services, oilfield equipment, turbomachinery and process solutions, and digital services.
In addition to subsea infrastructure manufacturing and installation, the facility now also delivers a broad range of oilfield services, well construction and drilling services, wellbore intervention, wireline services, completion services, aeroderivative turbomachinery, power and compression technology and maintenance services for upstream production facilities (i.e. oil platforms and FPSOs), midstream plants (i.e. LNG) and downstream (i.e. refineries).
Ado Oseragbaje, president, BHGE sub-Saharan Africa, said, “BHGE is the only fullstream technology and service company, supporting oil and gas operations in Angola.”
“We have operated in Angola since 1958, and this latest investment in the country further cements our unique position in the market and offers our customers access to world-class technologies and services, spanning the entire oil and gas value chain to help their business,” he added.
“Beyond serving our customers, this facility is another big step in our localisation journey and our long-term commitment to the African region,” he concluded.
