Oil & Gas
Southey’s oil & gas footprint stretches beyond the borders of South Africa, with permanent facilities in Walvis Bay (Namibia) and Takoradi (Ghana) – and new operations in Mozambique adding to facilities in Cape Town, Saldanha Bay and Coega. Services the upstream, midstream and downstream oil & gas value chain.Our involvement in the industry dates back to the 1980s with the establishment of domestic production at the Mossel Bay (Mossgas) project. The near unlimited availability of gas resources along the African coastline and throughout the continent points to the industry playing a major role in future (global) power generation. Southey’s oil & gas division, with its existing (and rapidly expanding) African footprint, is perfectly placed to help the continent, and the world, gain maximum benefit from these energy sources.
"The demand for reliable power generation and supply is growing exponentially in Africa and across the continent – and is key to economic growth and stability as African countries ramp up efforts to compete on a global stage.
In order to meet such rapidly increasing energy demands, utility companies like Eskom need to not only ensure optimal performance of existing (and often dated) power stations but also rush to complete new projects across a vast spectrum of facilities, including traditional coal (and incoming renewable energy and/or nuclear) powered plants.
Southey Offshore provides multiple services across the industry. Southey Offshore is involved with maintenance, shutdowns and new build projects at various Eskom coal powered facilities and at the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station. In addition, we have undertaken projects at hydro-electric power plants and provide services to numerous wind farms, solar parks and bio-mass plants."
"Africa as a whole still has significant mineral resources that continue to drive the mining sector across the continent. Challenges relating to labour, operational cost and the political influences of the day are offset by the massive potential windfalls this industry offers. It is one that Southey Contracting knows inside out – having originally established ourselves in 1939 as an industrial painting and insulation company, servicing the African mining industry. We service gold, platinum, coal and other mining operations.
In addition to Africa’s reputation as the traditional powerhouse of mining industry, there are vast undeveloped resources in the rest of the continent. Substantial coal discoveries in Mozambique, gold in the DRC and iron ore in Sierra Leone, to name but a few, have led to mushrooming mining activity. As result, Southey Contracting has set up mining support businesses near to some of the most successful extractive operations in sub-Saharan Africa. These include diamond and uranium mining in Namibia, copper and cobalt mining in Zambia and the DRC, coal mining in Mozambique and gold mining in Ghana."
