FOS Group, a new oilfield services company launched Monday in Aberdeen, is looking to create over 100 new jobs.
Combining the engineering knowledge of Apollo and the offshore construction expertise of AquaTerra Group Ltd, FOS Group states on its website that it delivers an ‘alternative’ engineering, procurement and construction solution for oil and gas companies operating in the North Sea and beyond.
“There is a truly authentic drive at FOS to help shape and build a more sustainable and responsible North Sea economy,” Jonathan White, FOS Group managing director, said in a company statement.
“FOS combines more than 20 years of experience from its founding organisations and our clients can immediately access over 100 multidiscipline onshore engineering and design personnel along with over 150 multiskilled offshore construction workers,” he added.
“We have the capacity to execute scopes across the whole project lifecycle including procurement and fabrication ensuring safe and appropriate installed solutions on, below and above deck,” he continued.
FOS Group is aiming to generate ‘substantial growth’ over the next 12 months, according to the company’s launch statement.
“The North Sea needs new solutions to enable sustainability whilst continuing to provide value for operators, supply chain, government and the local economy alike,” White said.
“FOS represents an exciting opportunity for our staff and clients and provides the market with a welcome alternative for successful project delivery in a mature basin,” he added.
