The UK arm of Dutch energy service firm N-Sea Group said yesterday it had secured work worth a total of more than £100million since a change of ownership at the start of the year.
N-Sea Offshore, which recently moved into new offices in the harbour area of Aberdeen after outgrowing premises elsewhere in the city, told the Press and Journal the new projects involved a “significant number” of major, long-term contracts across north-west Europe.
The work also sees N-Sea, which employs about 40 people in the Granite City, providing inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) services to a variety of major operators and operational service companies.
Chief operating officer Roddy James said: “2014 has seen N-Sea’s success continue to grow, with the UK side of operations expanding considerably in a short space of time.
“The value of contracts won this year illustrates N-Sea’s game-changing technical capability, the excellent reputation we have within the oil and gas industry and our commitment to reducing clients’ operating expenditure.”
N-Sea Group provides IMR services to the oil and gas, renewable, utility and telecom industries, supporting customers’ infrastructure ranging from oil and gas platforms, pipelines and cables to offshore windfarms.
The company has been involved in subsea work since about 1968, when oil and gas developments on the Dutch continental shelf presented new opportunities offshore.
It announced its acquisition of the Aberdeen business, previously the subsea division of Stork Technical Services, in January.
The value of the deal, which saw Mr James, who was previously Stork senior vice-president, join the N-Sea Group board, was not disclosed.
