Bibby Offshore opens office in Stravanger, Norway
Bibby Offshore Holdings Limited announces its continued international expansion with the opening of an office in Stravanger, Norway. The Norwegian office for Bibby Offshore will be headed by Arne Lier, the company said in its press release.
Bibby Offshore has a leading subsea services position in the UK North Sea and the opening of the office in Norway further increases the Company’s growing international presence.
The Company is current participating in a number of tenders in the Norwegian Continental Shelf (“NCS” or the “Region”) and is focusing on expanding its existing services to offshore operators in the Region, benefiting from the depth of relationship that Bibby Offshore already has with the UKCS divisions of many operators.
Arne Lier, who joins the Company on 1 September 2014, is leading the recruitment of further key positions for the Norway office to increase the total headcount to approximately 30 during 2015.
Howard Woodcock, Chief Executive of Bibby Offshore, commented:
“The opening of an office in Norway is in recognition of the size and opportunity of the offshore market in the North Sea and specifically in the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Norway is a very important marketplace for us to operate in, as the Company looks to grow and expand our international presence.”
