Wood Group PSN in Africa…

We're pioneering safety training and prioritising the direct hire of local people in Africa.

We currently operate in Algeria, Angola, Cameroon, Chad, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia and Uganda.

By working closely with local companies and vendors to strengthen their safety and operations, we help them both to meet our demands and to build a more sustainable future for themselves in the globalised marketplace.

Our intensive programme in language, communication and technical training, including local graduate secondments to our UK head office, ensures the rapid replacement of expatriate staff with local staff in leadership positions.

Each of our project teams gets involved in a range of initiatives to assist local communities; they form committees made up of expatriate and national workers to decide on priorities, and not only donate funds but also get involved in training and providing resources.

We are in Africa because we want to put our extensive expertise of mature fields and facilities to good use in building and extending the life of our customers’ new and established facilities.
