BHGE Launches Multimodal Facility Expansion in Angola
Baker Hughes, a GE company, announced the inauguration of its multimodal facility (MMF) for oil and gas in Luanda, Angola. The facility, with its additional capabilities across multiple product lines, will deliver a suite of products and services across the oil and gas value chain and serve as a hub to support customers and projects in the Angola and Southern Africa region.
The Luanda facility will service BHGE’s product capabilities in oilfield equipment and services, turbomachinery and process solutions, and digital services. In addition to subsea infrastructure manufacturing and installation, the facility now also delivers a 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 established 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/m2 load capacity.
Other capabilities include subsea tree assembly and testing, sand control, wellbore intervention wireline, surface logging services, drilling services, completion services, wireline services, cementing services, coring services, sand control services, and upstream chemicals. Other services and products available at the facility are reservoir development services, aeroderivative turbomachinery technology supply and services, offshore field installation and onshore support, and rental tool maintenance and certification. Inspection, recertification of H4 connectors and drilling risers, maintenance and storage of customer-owned equipment, and tubular fabrication repairs can also be serviced from this facility.
