Aberdeen-based oil and gas service company FOCUS has acquired environmental, legislative and corporate compliance consultancy Trilogy Environmental Solutions for an undisclosed sum
FOCUS works with oil and gas operators and drilling contractors globally to manage and optimise the drilling fluid systems. Delivered on and offshore over the whole life-cycle of a well, its services reduce costs and waste, eliminate surface spills, and ensure environmental and regulatory compliance.
Trilogy was established in 2008 to provide environmental and regulatory compliance consultancy services to a range of industries, particularly the oil and gas and energy sectors. Alongside delivering its core services of environmental impact assessments, permits, audit, consents and assurance, and waste management advice, it has been involved in a major North Sea decommissioning project.
Trilogy’s core team will strengthen FOCUS’s 60-strong environmental team which is led by environmental manager Dr Colin Patterson.
Based at the firm’s Aberdeen headquarters, the team will continue to deliver a range of environmental services in three regional divisions – covering the Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Asia Pacific.
Colin Manderson, Chairman of FOCUS, said: “Acquiring Trilogy Environmental Solutions is a strategically important move us and forms the natural next step in the evolution of the company, which was only formed a few months ago, and strengthens our environmental service by offering a greater level of support to customers.”
