GCC Services, an integrated remote site service, has been selected by engineering and construction giant McDermott to provide camp services for the Tilenga Project Upstream Facilities in the Lake Albert Basin of Uganda.
GCC’s work, to take place over six years, begins in February and is to include camp management, catering, and camp support services for an international and local workforce that is expected to peak at 3,500 workers.
The Tilenga project, under the overall operation of Total Energies, is the centerpiece of oil projects projected to bring investments of over USD 10bn to Uganda and Tanzania. It will eventually have the capacity to process 190,000 to 700,000 barrels of oil a day.
During construction, the Tilenga project and related EACOP pipeline build are expected to generate 58,000 direct and indirect jobs, 2.1 million hours of training to build local skills, and USD 1.7bn worth of work for local companies, Total Energies says.
