2023 Divisional performance

In 2023, the Division increased revenue c.10% to £266.5m with operating profit increasing by c.13% to £15.7m.

Highlights included:

  • Strong performance from well testing, bubble curtain and artificial lift products
  • Expanded artificial lift products and service offerings from new manufacturing base on Saudi Arabia
  • Awarded UK "Innovation in Decommissioning Award" for SEABASS plug and abandonment solution 
  • Strong demand for our technologies, secured our first US contract for bubble curtains
  • Joint collaboration agreement signed for offshore wind operation and maintenance (O&M) services in Japan to support Northeast Asia geographical expansion
  • Launch of James Fisher Academy to deliver skills and competency for offshore wind services

Against the backdrop of heightening focus on energy security, demand for well testing and production optimisation services remained strong, particularly in the US, Middle East and Latin America. This was demonstrated through excellent performance in the well testing and artificial lift Product Lines.

By contrast, the decommissioning market remained challenging, and the business will focus more on selective bidding, aligned to margin delivery and stronger operational performance. Renewable offshore wind market conditions improved from 2022 to 2023 and the business returned to break-even through a combination of selective bidding, technology differentiation and geographical expansion. Offshore wind market conditions are expected to remain flat in 2024 but are set to improve in 2025 and the Division will focus its core strengths on construction, operations and maintenance, data management and digital solutions. This includes geographic expansion through key strategic partnerships and collaborations.
