Ghanaian-owned engineering services company, Harlequin Oil and Gas (HOG), has been awarded the ‘Indigenous Company of the year Award (upstream)’.
The company took home the coveted award at the seventh edition of the Ghana Oil and Gas Awards (GOGA) ceremony held at Kempinski Hotel in Accra.
The award was as a result of HOG’s commitment to excellence in service delivery, adherence to international QHSE standards and the professional development of Ghanaians within their community.
HOG, earlier this year, received the “Local Content Achievement Company of the Year 2020” by The Oil and Gas Year (TOGY), a prestigious oil & gas journal with global footprints.
The latest award from GOGA is a clear testament to HOG’s provision of outstanding world class fabrication, hydraulic and general engineering services to clients in the upstream oil and gas industry in Ghana and the sub-region.
The award was received by Messrs Daniel Christopher Hesse-Tetteh and Frederick Hermann Hesse-Tetteh, both executive directors of the company who dedicated the award to their staff whose hard work and innovation had enabled HOG deliver excellence to its clients.
Mr. Christopher Hesse-Tetteh said, “Harlequin aims to set the benchmark for engineering in West Africa. As a result of our relentless efforts to deliver projects on time with no defects and to the highest international standards of quality, HOG has become the preferred indigenous engineering service company. Our flagship facility in Takoradi has enabled us showcase that Ghanaian engineering firms have the capacity to deliver world-class products and services.”
On his part, Hermann Hesse-Tetteh gave the assurance that the company would continue to employ a considerable number of permanent staff from the Western Region and sponsor development programs that train fresh graduates, young engineers and technicians in various competencies annually.
“We are proud to say over 90% of our highly skilled employees are Ghanaians, and we intend to further develop our skill sets through on the job training, HSE training, new equipment training and professional development,” he said.
“The award will energize us to strive to be the West African oil and gas engineering Service Company of choice, offering a unique array of services for the benefit of the industry,” he added.
