Offshore engineering solutions provider James Fisher Offshore (JFO) said it will establish bases in Saudi Arabia and Dubai in a move to deliver efficiencies across multiple regional projects through an enhanced Middle Eastern footprint.

The UK-based company said it has secured a series of project wins in the region for its ultra-high-pressure abrasive cutting solution, that will be resourced and managed in country.

JFO has identified the Middle East as a key market where the business is creating measurable efficiencies for some of the region’s most notable decommissioning projects. There are an estimated 1,000 assets and more than 3,000 wells set to exceed their operational life expectancy over the next 20 years.

Ross Anderson, regional manager – Middle East, said, “Our JFO hub in al-Khobar in the Saudi Kingdom not only allows us to engage with project supply chains and relevant stakeholders, but from this base we can deploy equipment locally, including our hydraulic winches, subsea demolition tools and advanced abrasive cutting system. We are also providing in region expertise and full project support.

“Similarly, from our Dubai office we are providing engineering support, account management, equipment and personnel mobilization.

“Our ability to support our clients and trade from these regional bases, streamlines the commercial process, reduces mobilization time and costs and provides assurance to our customers of our commitment and ability to deliver as their supporting contractor.”
