Aberdeen-headquartered Xodus Group hailed its “strongest year” in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) following a clutch of contract wins.

Revenues from its office in Perth, Western Australia have increased by more than half in the last 12 months.

In that same period staff numbers at the Perth base have grown almost 50% to 20 with plans for further additions.

Since the start of 2019, the energy consultancy has also won contracts in the Asia-Pacific worth £640,000.

The firm set up shop in Western Australia in 2012, and said the recent success comes following a “tough few years” for the industry.

Simon Allison, Xodus’ operations director for the APAC region said: “Last year was our strongest year since we opened the Perth office in 2012.

“We have had a very positive start to 2019 which is allowing us to strengthen our team in key areas such as field development, where we are expecting a rise in new projects this year.

“After a tough few years for the industry, it’s positive to see an increase of activity in Western Australia.

“As well as our Australian work, we’re also growing our presence in South East Asia where we have established relationships with several key players in the region.”

Xodus Group will be part of the Scottish Pavillion at the Australasian Oil and Gas conference in Perth, which runs from March 13-15.
