Ceona, Seaweld form Ghana partnership

Ceona entered into a joint venture with Seaweld Engineering, which will act as a strategic partner for offshore deepwater construction projects in Ghana.

The Ceona Amazon. From Ceona.

The JV allows Ceona 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 officially registered the JV 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.  

Seaweld Engineering is headquartered in Takoradi and is a specialist in steel fabrication for the oil & gas industry. Established in 1979, Seaweld provides a flexible and well-resourced inspection, repair and maintenance service. The company has over 20 years of experience in the fast developing oil & gas production fields of West Africa and other areas of the world. Last year, the company received the prestigious Indigenous Oil & Gas Company of the Year 2014 at the Ghana Oil & Gas Awards.

The news comes as Ceona’s flagship vessel, the Amazon, nears completion at Huisman’s yard in Schiedam, Netherlands. The Amazon, specifically designed for deepwater markets including West Africa, is a unique field development vessel built with the capability to operate in multiple pipelay and operational modes, changing from rigid to flexible pipelay within a week. Designed to operate independent of spoolbases, the Amazon is ideal for projects in Ghana where spooling operations create long transit requirements and increased costs.

The Amazon is due to finish construction in Schiedam in the coming weeks, and will have her firing line fitted before heading to Gulf of Mexico for her first rigid pipelay project for Walter Oil & Gas this year.
