KONGSBERG OIL & GAS TECHNOLOGIES ESTABLISHING IN GUILDFORD, UK

Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies (KOGT), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Gruppen ASA, has established a new EAME (Europe, Africa, Middle East) headquarters in Guildford, UK. The new office, which officially opens today (1st May 2013), will provide sales and technical support to customers across the EAME region.

 

“The growing number of upstream developments in increasingly sensitive areas within the EAME region is driving a requirement for intelligent decision support solutions, so now is the ideal time to grow our operations by establishing a new HQ in the UK,” comments Jon Stærkebye, Senior Vice President, Software & Services, KOGT.

The new office will be the focal point for all customers operating in the EAME region, initially concentrating on KOGT's solutions and services in the fields of process simulation and flow assurance projects as well as real-time information systems for drilling decision support. These disciplines are vital to ensuring the continued safety, growth and sustainability of upstream operations in the EAME region. Ultimately the aim is to increase the range of business activities to include KOGT's Subsea equipment solutions and services.

“This move to larger premises, closer to some of our key clients, and within the catchment area for the expertise we require is part of the planned growth for the business; it’s a key stage in our development providing improved facilities and additional space as we continue to increase our presence in the EAME region” said Mike Topp, KOGT UK Managing Director.

KOGT has a global presence with key regional offices in Perth, Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore, Abu Dhabi, Houston and Rio de Janeiro in addition to the corporate headquarters in Oslo.
