In 2001, RSK’s first work in Africa was in Angola supporting clients working on offshore deepwater prospects with environmental impact assessment (EIA) services. From there, we built our operations and our reputation through project-by-project expansion, eventually securing master services agreements with oil and gas industry giants.
Now, we operate in countries across the continent and providing a range of services that includes environmental, social and health impact assessments (ESHIA) and attendant management plans; site investigation and contaminated land remediation; due diligence; and an array of other services, including social milieu requirements for oil and gas, mining, industrial and government clients.
Its transnational pipeline experience, combined with wide-ranging skills, has led to RSK becoming a preferred contractor to companies such as Shell, BP, BG, Total, SINOC, Tullow Oil and Chevron.
We are also working with several international mining companies and, to this end, we partner with a South African mining consultant that also supports hydrogeological studies for the oil sector projects that we carry out.
By ensuring that our clients’ projects meet the recognised standards of good international industry practice and those of the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation with respect to environmental, health and safety, and social standards, we help them to maintain their corporate social and environmental licence to operate.
As a service provider to oil, gas and extractive industries in Africa, we have built an array of partnerships across the continent. We pride ourselves on our international expertise, our local investment in the communities where we work and the lasting relationships we have built with our clients and local consultants with whom we work closely to provide country-appropriate solutions undertaken to international standards.
Some of our key countries are Angola, Mauritania, Côte d’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique and South Africa.
