LAGOS, Nigeria – After nearly four years of planning and investing more than $4.5 million in facilities, recruitment, and training, GE Oil & Gas (NYSE: GE) has added the capability to fabricate subsea wellheads in Nigeria.

The new wellhead production capabilities at GE’s existing Onne facility in River state align with the Nigerian federal government’s local content law and desire for increased manufacturing capacity, skill acquisition, and technology transfer.

“GE Oil & Gas has a vision to ‘Fuel the Future’ by delivering cost-effective customer solutions on time wherever they are needed across the globe,” said Uzo Nwagwu, COO for GE Oil & Gas in Nigeria. “By investing now in the development of our people and facilities, we are able to localize subsea wellhead assembly and partner with local suppliers to create a more sustainable business for Nigeria.”
