How it all started

The beginning of our story

The Rigworld idea started while working as a drilling crew member on board the Atwood Hunter rig late 2010.
At the time, I knew very little about the oil and gas industry, and yet I had the desire to incorporate an indigenous logistics, oil and gas company that would become a local and international household name.

We started off as a small manning service provider operating within a small office in Osu, Greater Accra (Ghana) where we obtained our first regulator permits to operate within the sector from the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) in 2011.

Our first contract was to provide manning services and procurement services to Seadrill’s West Leo.

Our vision

To be the prime in upstream oil & gas service providing company with an impeccable record of excellence in all our deliveries.

Our mission

To provide timely and quality services to our clients to enable them achieve their business objectives.

Our values

Our values define us as a company and express who we are, how we think, and how we act.

Our success

We received a lot of skepticism from the inception, but with focus and aggressive growth, Rigworld transformed from being a manning agency to what we are today. We have become a household name in Ghana and are currently registered with the Petroleum Commission who is now the regulator.

Rigworld has diversified to capture a wider range of services amidst the formation of several Joint Ventures with foreign companies operating in Ghana. Steadily, our global presence is becoming very imminent.
