GE to go ahead with Calabar plant despite delays on Bonga South West


General Electric (GE) has said that it will complete construction of its Calabar Manufacturing Facility despite the fact that Bonga South West-Aparo (BSWAP), the deepwater oilfield project for which it was primarily conceived, has been put on hold, according to Africa Oil & Gas Report.

Ado Oseragbaje, President and CEO of GE Oil and Gas Subsaharan Africa, acknowledged that the non-taking of the Final Investment Decision (FID) on BSWAP, has “challenged” the plans for a manufacturing facility in Calabar.

Oseragbaje however said; “there is a project team that is responsible for delivering the project on time and on budget. Overall, in our long term strategy for Nigeria, the Calabar facility is part of our thinking both as GE and the oil and gas division”.
