An independent Scottish oil and gas service company has won a global multi-year contract with a leading Anglo-Australian resources company.
TMS International, an Aberdeen-based drilling fluid systems specialist, has sealed a deal with multinational mining, metals and petroleum company BHP.
The deal comes less than a year after TEMS International was founded – and set up a new a US office headed by newly-appointed vice-president of operations John Donaldson.
Rigs operating in the Gulf of Mexico and in Trinidadian and Mexican waters form the initial part of the global service agreement, with the work involving four of TEMS International’s engineers. As the overall scope of the multi-year service agreement expands, the number of engineers employed by TEMS International will increase.
Bill Walkingshaw, TEMS International managing director, said: “Landing this multi-year contract is a major moment in our development. It affords great potential for our continued growth as a company and underlines the importance that exploration and production companies place on the services we offer our clients.
“Our independence from drilling equipment manufacturers and service providers is one of our key strengths, which is acknowledged by customers. Having a base in the US will allow us to better engage with customers, be more responsive to their needs and build solid long-term relationships with them.”
Meanwhile, Aquaterra Energy, an offshore engineering solutions provider, has appointed Christian Berven as its new business development director after opening offices in Stavanger, Norway.
