ABS announced the forming of a joint venture with Notabene Classification Limited, in order to offer regulatory and technical support services, including key classification services to the upstream oil and gas market in Ghana.
ABS has been providing technical, integrity test and inspection services in the upstream oil and gas industry in Ghana since 2010 and this local partnership strengthens its support to the growing offshore energy sector in the region.
“This joint venture is an important milestone and demonstrates our strong commitment to advancing safety in all parts of the globe,” said ABS Executive Vice President, Global Offshore, Kenneth Richardson. “By working closely with our local partners, we will effectively deliver the classification, verification and certification services the offshore industry needs to operate more safely and efficiently.”
The joint venture will operate under the name ABS Ghana Upstream Limited.
“We are excited to work with a local company in Ghana that will complement our existing work and add even greater value to the services that we deliver,” said ABS Africa Regional Director Richard Taylor.
