Leighton O’Brien lands large UST testing contract in Ghana

In partnership with local player Universal Engineering, LOB will test underground storage tanks at over 1,800 sites in Ghana.

Fuel analytics technology provider Leighton O’Brien, in partnership with Licensed Service Partner Universal Engineering Services, has won a major contract with the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) in Ghana to integrity test more than 1,800 fuel retail sites throughout the country.

The deal marks the largest international testing contract for Leighton O’Brien and its first major inroad into the burgeoning West African region.

The NPA is Ghana’s key industry regulator overseeing the project which aims to assess the tightness of underground storage tanks (USTs) and lines and develop a comprehensive database of test dates and UST status for compliance monitoring and follow up testing.

“This is a significant project and recognition of the quality of our leak detection technology and country expertise of our partner Universal Engineering. As environmental regulations grow, we’re well positioned to support the increased focus on environmental standards and protocols to monitor and lower UST risk in Ghana’s downstream petroleum industry,” said Leighton O’Brien Regional Director for EMEA, Munir Azizullah.

Universal Engineering is one of the largest independent petroleum service providers in Ghana.
