Aberdeen-headquartered Celera Support Services has launched a post-pandemic strategy of internationalisation by inking a Joint Venture with Gulf-based offshore services supplier, Remote Site Middle East (RSME).
Providing offshore catering and hotel management services to the Middle East energy sector since 2015, Celera’s Offshore division counts some of the industry’s major drilling and subsea players – including Saipem, Qatar Gas, Mermaid and Aramco – as clients in the region. Consolidating a partnership with RSME which has been in place for several years, Celera Support Services Director, John Wigglesworth, believes the Joint Venture will unlock significant benefits to existing and future clients.
He comments: “Combining the local knowledge and expertise of RSME with the track record and capabilities of Celera Offshore Services has resulted in a highly experienced and effective international alliance spanning six years. We are delighted to establish a joint registered presence in the KSA, Qatar and the UAE, elevating our existing regional offshore service to the next level in terms of local content requirements, commercial flexibility, operational turnaround and provision of on-the-ground personnel to support clients’ project operations.”
RSME Managing Director, Sagar Jadwani adds: “This Joint Venture serves to underline a highly successful relationship, the results of which confirm the good operational and economic sense of a formalised partnership. In doing so, we have created a compelling market proposition with an enhanced, in-country account management structure, which also illustrates our joint long-term commitment to the promotion of local content within the offshore energy sector.”
The Joint Venture between Celera Support Services and Remote Site Middle East has been created to enable significant project work in the Arabian Gulf during Q3/4 2022.
