Subsea project-management and engineering company CSL is to open an office in Houston this year as part of its expansion plans.
The company, which has its HQ in Aberdeen, opened its second office, in London, earlier this year.
CSL said there was significant potential for it to develop its business in Houston. Managing director Mark Gillespie said: “Our strategy is to increase CSL’s international presence by taking our skills and experience to places where there is growing demand for subsea expertise.
“Houston is often described as the centre for the international energy sector and, with the high oil price leading to increased levels of development activity, it’s an ideal time for CSL to move into the market.”
CSL business-development manager Rodrigo Rendon, who is among the CSL delegation at OTC, said: “It is one of the largest and most important oil and gas trade shows of the year.
“It attracts a global audience and is a great platform for us to highlight CSL’s skills, capability and resources as well as giving us the opportunity to network with potential clients and identify how we will be able to help them in the delivery of their subsea developments.”
Founded in 2000, CSL employs more than 190 subsea specialists and supports clients in 20-plus countries.
It is a subsidiary of DOF Subsea.
