SURF contractor, Ceona, has expanded its West African reach after entering into a strategic partnership with Interoil Angola.
The partnership will see Interoil Angola, a player in offshore support vessel management in West Africa, support Ceona’s plans to expand into Angola.
Ceona is already active in West Africa through its Ceona-Seaweld joint venture in Ghana as well as the company’s strategic partnership with Marine Platforms Limited in Nigeria.
Bill Hickie, Ceona’s VP Business Development, 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. 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.”
Headquartered in Luanda and with a yard in Sonils, Interoil Angola’s core business is managing support vessels in-country.
