InterMoor expands in Nigeria, signs JVA with Century

InterMoor, an Acteon company, has announced that the company is finalising a joint venture agreement with Century Energy Services Ltd (Century) in Nigeria.

This will be a locally registered company and fully compliant with the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Bill, 2010. For InterMoor, securing a joint venture with an experienced and established partner like Century will ensure an effective local engagement with the Nigerian oil and gas market.

InterMoor has been working in West Africa for 10 years with bases in Luanda and Malongo in Angola. The company also has extensive experience with rig moves and mooring campaigns in Angola and Equatorial Guinea.

Philipp Stratmann, InterMoor’s global development manager, said: “Nigeria is the largest oil producer in Africa. Expanding in Nigeria is a strategic move for us while we continue to focus on international growth and new ways to address our clients’ needs. The joint venture will ensure compliance with Nigerian local content laws and enable us to participate in the increasing number of offshore projects being conducted in the region.”

Derrick Douglas, InterMoor’s new business development manager in Nigeria, and Osas Uwaifo, Century’s managing director for the joint venture, will manage the InterMoor offices in Lagos. Douglas brings 10 years of experience with Shell Nigeria to the job and holds an MBA from Cranfield School of Management in the UK. Uwaifo is a petroleum engineer with more than 13 years’ experience in business development and contract management in the oil and gas industry. She is currently in charge of business development and commercial activities for Century Group and has a BEng degree in petroleum engineering.

InterMoor currently has three permanent staff based in Lagos, including a local operations and a local commercial manager. It also offers shore-based support through its partner at Kidney Island and through the planned yard at the Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics Base.
