Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), has announced the inauguration of its multimodal facility (MMF) for oil and gas in Luanda, Angola.
BHGE said earlier this week that the facility, with its additional capabilities across multiple product lines, would deliver a suite of products and services across the oil and gas value chain.
“It 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,” BHGE explained.
The company also noted that the location for this multipurpose facility would put it 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 & 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).
“BHGE is the only fullstream technology and service company, supporting oil and gas operations in Angola,” said Ado Oseragbaje, president, BHGE Sub-Saharan Africa.
“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.”
The multimodal facility is located at the Sonils Integrated Logistics Base, Luanda. With the additional investment, the MMF builds on BHGE’s track record and capabilities in subsea tree assembly and testing. The facility has added additional indoor turbomachinery overhauling services for gas turbines, and an outside storage area that can withstand up to 10T/SQM load capacity.
