STATS Group is targeting new opportunities in the Australian and Papua New Guinea oil, gas and industrial sectors by extending its relationship with OSD.
This follows on from a similar agency agreement covering the New Zealand market.
OSD is engineering, operations and commercial services provider to the oil and gas, pipelines and facilities, process, refining, water and hydro-transport sectors.
The companies have successfully collaborated on three pressurised pipeline isolation projects in New Zealand and plan to use this template to grow their businesses in Australia.
STATS also strengthened its track record in the Australian oil and gas sector with the completion last year of a 10” onshore pipeline isolation in Victoria and an 18” isolation on an offshore platform off Victoria, and is currently working on a further offshore project in the region for the same international operator.
STATS Group regional sales manager for Asia Pacific, Gareth Campbell, said: “The template we have established with OSD in New Zealand is working extremely well and we look forward to rolling this out to tap into the many opportunities that Australia’s onshore, offshore and emerging LNG markets has to offer.”
OSD’s asset services manager, Jarrod Woolnough, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce an extension of our successful New Zealand partnership with STATS as it further supports our drive for excellence in providing world class engineering, technical and innovative solutions to industries toughest challenges.”
