Group growth in the Middle East

James Fisher is fast expanding into Middle Eastern offshore and subsea markets with a comprehensive range of equipment and services now offering fully integrated solutions to support major oil and gas contractors in the region.

As part of this regional focus, Subtech recently signed multi-million dollar contracts to work on numerous projects in the Arabian Gulf.

The work, which also involves resources from the wider James Fisher group under one umbrella operation, includes the installation of flexible pipelines, umbilicals and power cables, combined with pipeline demolition works in the Safaniya and Manifa fields in the Arabian Gulf.

The integrated approach signals a new way of doing business in the Middle East for James Fisher and has been implemented thanks to feedback from clients which increasingly demand the option to access additional services via their established and trusted contractor.

Subtech's contract is one of many in the region now covering a range of works from installation and maintenance to demolition and decommissioning as James Fisher’s operations continue to grow, which are increasingly drawing upon further equipment and personnel from the James Fisher group to offer a seamless, integrated full service solution.

Paul Whiley, managing director at Subtech Group says:

‘Access to a comprehensive array of offshore equipment and skilled personnel within the James Fisher group allows us to offer a single point solution that many other service providers in the region simply cannot match.’

‘Subtech can now provide major contractors with single source supply, so effectively streamline the supply chain and make customer operations more efficient’ he adds.

Not only does the extension of regional capabilities like this allow for the provision of a rapid and responsive mobilisation of services, but it also benefits the local economy as the teams employ local subsea and offshore professionals with expert knowledge of the oil and gas sectors.

Faisel Chaudry, regional director at James Fisher adds:

‘Over the last year, we have seen a sharp increase in demand for our services in the oil and gas sector here. We plan to deploy even more of our resources and expertise, establishing a permanent presence so we can offer unrivalled support and truly integrated subsea service solutions.’

One such example of the new regional efficiencies is the sourcing and delivery of a heavy duty 500t linear winch along with tension spooling equipment, diamond wire saws and ancillary equipment by JF Offshore. The equipment is on route to the Gulf in preparation for new pipeline projects there.

With recent successful decommissioning and subsea trenching operations completed, James Fisher has quickly moved onto five construction and decommissioning projects including; cable installation, survey and diving operations and the cutting and removal of subsea infrastructure in the Gulf of Arabia.
