Wood and Nigerian-headquartered, Dorman Long Engineering Limited (Dorman Long), have signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to jointly provide their maintenance services in the Gulf of Guinea.
Bringing together the companies’ expertise and comprehensive range of services supporting the maintenance of offshore and onshore oil and gas facilities across the asset life cycle, the MOA will strategically support customer demand for greater efficiencies and enhanced innovations.
Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, said: “We are a global company that is committed to acting locally and we recognise the development of in-country relationships and expertise, as fundamental to our successful delivery.
“This collaboration with Dorman Long combines our four decades of experience providing maintenance services to the oil and gas sector with their deep local knowledge and talent. Our focus will be drawing together our strengths to support onshore and offshore assets, in particular focusing on safely extending the life of assets, reducing costs and improving productivity.”
Dr. Timi Austen-Peters, Chairman of Dorman Long, said: “This collaborative relationship with Wood will deliver clear benefits to the region’s oil and gas operators. Wood brings a fresh perspective to our business through their long-term experience providing maintenance services across global markets. This MOA positions us to deliver excellent services in the oil and gas, power and technology industries, while making a larger contribution to Nigeria in general and host communities in particular. It will result in our recruiting many Nigerian youth and providing them with first class on-the job training.”
