Aberdeen-based Xodus Group’s Perth office has won more than A$3.5 million (£2million) in new contracts over the last six months.
Xodus’ Asia-Pacific (APAC) region has had significant success in the growth of its decommissioning business, both in Australia and South-East Asia, where the company has established relationships with several key players. The company has also enhanced its digital production optimisation and monitoring tools.
With the success, Xodus has increased its workforce locally and appointed Simon Allison as operations director for the APAC region.
Mr Allison is responsible for the management of the group’s office including business development and growing strategic new markets. Having previously been Xodus’ general manager in Scotland, he is maintaining an active technical role in projects, including project management.
Mr Allison has worked in the oil and gas industry for more than 20 years after graduating with honours in Chemical Engineering from the University of Melbourne. After starting his career as a process engineer, he later specialised in the field of flow assurance.
Mr Allison, who joined Xodus as a production assurance manager in 2011, said: “It’s a huge honour to lead the APAC team in Perth and we have had an excellent year with some significant contract wins and the addition of new members of the team. We continue to grow and enhance our digital production optimisation and monitoring tools.
“Over the next few months, we’re targeting sustained and supported growth while increasing our offering in the company’s core business areas of advisory service, field development, projects, asset support and decommissioning.”
