James Fisher Offshore expands Middle East footprint

offshoreJames Fisher Offshore (JFO), provider of specialist offshore engineering solutions, has announced that it is expanding its Middle Eastern footprint by establishing bases in Saudi Arabia and Dubai

The company’s commitment to the region follows a series of project wins for its pioneering ultra-high-pressure abrasive cutting solution, that will be resourced and managed in-country.

Ross Anderson, regional manager – the Middle East, said, “Our JFO hub in al-Khobar in the kingdom not only allows us to engage with project supply chains and relevant stakeholders but from this base, we can deploy equipment locally, including our hydraulic winches, subsea demolition tools and advanced abrasive cutting system.

“Similarly, from our Dubai office, we are providing engineering support, account management, equipment and personnel mobilisation. These regional bases streamline the commercial process, reduce mobilisation time and costs and provides assurance to our customers of our commitment and ability.”

According to the company, the Middle East is a vital market for them where the business is creating measurable efficiencies for some of the region’s most notable decommissioning projects. There are an estimated 1,000 assets and more than 3,000 wells set to exceed their operational life expectancy over the next 20 years.
