In West Africa Hutton’s Remote Site Services (HRSS) provides an efficient, cost-effective supply network through its regional depots in Ghana and Equatorial Guinea, Ivory Coast and Liberia.
Our large depot in Takoradi, Ghana services the offshore oil and gas industry while our strategically important branch in Luba Freeport is uniquely positioned at the tax-free, deepwater port facility.

These area supply bases also support our smaller local supply branches – such as Ivory Coast, which services customers in the Abidjan area, and Liberia.
As our West Africa continues to grow we plan to establish more regional depots to deliver our successful supply solutions.
These ethically and environmentally aware supply bases in West Africa boast large, secure facilities providing full ambient, chilled and frozen storage for an extensive range of European-quality products which are delivered via a fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles, unique in this part of the world.
They are staffed by experienced and well-trained personnel who provide a high quality service and are assisted by computer processes linked to Hutton’s UK operations.
With direct supply links to the UK and Europe, the Hutton’s bases are Petroleum Corporation-approved and offer services such as consignment clearance, storage and logistics, handling of customer spares and consignments and a tax/duty-free facility.
