We’ll also be looking to optimize the design to use less steel and maximize in-country logistics, as we do all we can to embrace our transitioning energy sector and reduce carbon emission impacts. West Africa is an important region to us and we want to continue increasing our work here, as well as sharing our skills and knowledge with local engineers and partners,” Stewart added.
