Ceona, SURF contractor with heavy subsea construction capabilities, has entered into a Joint Venture (JV) with Seaweld Engineering which will act as a strategic partner for offshore deepwater construction projects in Ghana.
According to Ceona’s press statement, the JV allows it to extend its operations in West Africa and build upon the success it has already achieved in the region. The agreement will see Seaweld Engineering supporting Ceona in delivering its full line of products and expertise in Ghana. The companies have been working together since late 2014 and the JV was officially registered by the Petroleum Commission in Ghana in March 2015.
As part of Ceona’s growth plans, the company has opened an office in Accra as well as taking on a further office and yard space in Takoradi.
Mark Preece, Executive VP Commercial and Business Development at Ceona, said: “It was important for us to find an experienced and respected partner to support our move into Ghana as we increase our growing geographical footprint across West Africa.
“Seaweld Engineering is well known in the country and has a well-earned reputation for the high quality of its work in oil & gas. The JV will complement both companies as we offer our combined strengths to clients requiring specialist support in deepwater construction operations.”
Seaweld Engineering is headquartered in Takoradi and is a specialist in steel fabrication for the oil & gas industry. Established in 1979, Seaweld provides inspection, repair and maintenance service.
