Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech has appointed its first Asia director to support its increasing operations in the region.

James Phu Nguyen takes up the newly created role having spent more than 15 years in the oil and gas industry.

He joins the engineering firm from Baker Hughes PPS, where he held the position of area manager for the Far East.

Based in Malaysia, he has held several “high-level” technical sales and operations roles at a number of oil and gas service companies across Asia and Australia.

In his new position, Mr Nguyen will be responsible for leading EnerMech’s personnel in Asia with a key focus on driving business growth in existing markets.

He will also be tasked with extending the company’s current activities across Brunei, Indonesia, India, the Philippines, and Sakhalin Island.

A “central” part of his work will be in expanding EnerMech’s process, pipelines and umbilical (PPU), cranes, hydraulics and industrial services offering in the region.

Private-equity backed EnerMech has been active in Asia since 2009 and currently employs workers across its bases in Malaysia, Singapore, India, South Korea and China.

Mr Nguyen said: “EnerMech has an enviable reputation across Asia so it’s an exciting time to be joining such a well-respected business as it gears up for a period of sustained growth.

“As the industry continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, there is renewed optimism as delayed projects restart and EnerMech is ideally placed to support this influx of activity.

“I’m pleased to be joining the team and look forward to working closely with the wider global leadership team to deliver our innovative solutions to the region.”

Paul McCarthy, regional director for Asia Pacific, added: “James has a strong network in Asia and his deep understanding of the region and its demands will be extremely valuable to the business as we implement our growth strategy.

“With extensive experience in delivering multi-million-dollar energy projects and leading large, international teams James is ideally suited to spearhead our operations.

“We have experienced a rising demand for our services across Asia Pacific and already have a number of large-scale projects underway across the oil and gas and industrial markets.

“With operators now planning substantial spend across oil and gas infrastructure assets we are well positioned to deliver our services to drive safer and smarter operations across Asia.”
