An Aberdeen based specialist oil and gas services company – which was set up just three years ago –  has invested a six figure sum in a new base in Australia to meet market demand.

OEM Diesel Products, which recently relocated its headquarters from Dyce to Altens to accommodate the continued growth of the business, has opened a new office in St George’s Terrace in Perth, Western Australia.

The move places the firm, which was established in 2012 to provide a single point of contact for companies sourcing engine services or spare parts in the oil and gas, marine services and energy sector, in the heart of the oil and gas district, close to major names in the industry.

The specialist company recently signed a co-working agreement with the IPU Group to combine OEM’s expertise in the servicing of generator sets with IPU’s specialised knowledge of non-electric engine starting, long-term maintenance of stored fuel and extending the life of engine oil and hydraulic fluids.

The partnership has allowed OEM to launch a pioneering fuel cleaning system which is designed to prevent contaminated fuel causing major downstream problems of power failures on oil and gas platforms.

Managing director, Barry Park, said: “OEM continued to experience growth throughout 2014, and market demand for our new fuel conditioning systems made our decision to open the base in Australia relatively easy.”
