Estates & assets Nigeria

NIGERIA
In Nigeria, Siat holds 60% of the share capital of Presco Plc, a company listed on the Lagos Stock Exchange. Presco is a fully integrated oil palm venture of 23,600 ha of industrial oil palm plantation, an oil mill, a palm kernel crushing plant and a refinery/fractionation plant.

In addition, Siat also holds 100% of Siat Nigeria Limited (SNL). In 2011, SNL acquired from the Rivers State Government the assets of Risonpalm, which comprise a concession of 16,000 hectares of oil palm plantations, including the entire social and industrial infrastructures of the complex. To complete the full integration of all oil palm activities in Nigeria, PRESCO recently acquired 100% of the shares of Siat Nigeria Limited.

When Siat became involved in Presco in 1991, the Company had only the Obaretin Estate with an oil palm plantation size of 3,000 ha. Under Siat’s management, a new expansion programme commenced from 1993 onwards, as a result of which a total of 23,600 ha are planted at the Obaretin, Cowan, Ologbo and Sakponba Estates.

Presco has been listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange since 2002, and has recently been admitted into the NSE 30 index. The Siat Group holds 60% of the shares while 10,000 Nigerian shareholders hold the remaining 40%. Siat manages Presco under a management contract. Presco aspires to remain the leader in the oil palm agro-industry in Nigeria. Through its fully integrated production chain (from seedling to finished product) the company is able to produce speciality oils and fats of outstanding quality to customer’s specification and is able to guarantee reliability of supply of its products the whole year round.

By increasing planted areas and improving yields using modern planting material, the company expects its production to grow. In order to cope with this increase, Presco plans to expand its processing facilities accordingly. This expansion programme will help the company to face its ever increasing demand from its Nigerian clients. Presco continuously invests in research and development in high performing palm hybrids, but also for new products for the food industry.

Ubima estate is currently under replanting. More than 8,000 hectares have recently been replanted in both Ubima and Elele. The new palm oil mill has a capacity of 60 tons of FFB per hour, and the kernel crushing plant can absorb 60 tons per day.

Estates & assets Ghana

GHANA

In Ghana, Siat holds 100% of the share capital of Ghana Oil Palm Development Ltd. The subsidiary cultivates approximately 9,000 hectares of industrial oil palm plantations, from a concession of 14,000 hectares, and provides financial and technical support to 7,000 independent farmers, who cultivate a total of 13,700 hectares of oil palm smallholdings.

GOPDC runs a refinery/fractionation plant with a capacity of 100 tonnes per day. GOPDC has an aggregate storage capacity of 16,000 tonnes both at Kwae, which is located near Kade in the Eastern Region of Ghana, and Tema. A diversification into rubber has started on soils less suitable for oil palm. As at the end of 2018, 750 hectares of rubber have been planted at GOPDC.

Besides the industrial plantations, GOPDC also contributes to the development of plantations of many individual farmers.  These farmers purchase high quality seedlings and fertilizers from the company. GOPDC equally assures a ready market for their crop at a price which is linked to the sales revenue of the oil produced.

The company has been and still is today the driving force of development in the region. It is estimated that the company provides indirectly an income to not less than 50,000 people.

Estates & assets Ivory Coast

IVORY COAST
In Côte d’Ivoire, Siat holds 100% of Compagnie Hévéicole de Cavally (CHC). CHC runs a rubber plantation of 5,500 ha on a total concession of 7,700 ha. The company also operates an independent smallholders scheme with about 1,200 registered farmers cultivating a total of 13,500 ha of rubber smallholdings. A rubber processing factory is installed and functional within the premises of the plantation with a capacity of 50,000 t/a of crumb rubber. The estate is located in the well-established rubber growing zone near the Ivorian border with Liberia, 27 km from Zagné, in the prefecture of Guiglo in the region of Moyen Cavally.

In August 2007, Siat acquired 100% ownership of Compagnie Hévéicole de Cavally (CHC) from CDC London, who in turn acquired the company from the Government of Ivory Coast in the early eighties.

It is envisaged that Siat would seek an additional area of land to expand the plantation by about 5,000 ha. The development of this new area will be carried out to the highest industry standard. CHC expects to expand the smallholder sector by about 1,000 hectares each year. In order to harness the interest in that  scheme and maximize the area planted by farmers, the Company will actively promote extension services as well as making class “A” bud wood available for smallholder plantings at subsidized prices.
