According to the Managing Director, BW Offshore Nigeria Limited, Peter Walsh, the coming on board of the three new investors is a strategic partnership that better positions the company to compete in the Nigerian oil and gas industry, increasing its capacity to deliver a greater portion of any FPSO project in-country, from the engineering right through to the fabrication and construction scope.
Particularly, he noted that opportunities open to Nigerians as the company bids for future oil and gas projects as a full-fledged Nigerian entity.
The company’s boss said that the company is ready to take the Nigeria’s upstream sector of the petroleum industry by storm by providing hi- technology solution.
With a global fleet of 16 FPSO’s, BW Offshore currently operates two (2) FPSO’s in Nigeria namely; the ABO FPSO operating for Nigerian Agip Exploration (NAE) and the Sendje Berge FPSO operating for Addax Petroleum Development (Nigeria) Ltd (SINOPEC).
