Offshore consultants join forces

Published:  21 April, 2021

Following AqualisBraemar’s acquisition of LOC Group in December 2020, the two groups have successfully completed their integration process ahead of original schedule, operating as AqualisBraemar LOC group effective from  21 April 2021.

The integration allows AqualisBraemar LOC to offer clients in the oil and gas industry an even broader service offering and higher operational support capacity in more locations.

In the oil and gas industry, AqualisBraemar LOC brings expertise in upstream, midstream, onshore projects, and refining and petrochemical.

“For our clients in the oil and gas industry, this successful integration means one plus one equals three. We are now able to offer clients a much more complete and efficient service offering through a broader competence base and increased capacity worldwide,” says David Wells, CEO of AqualisBraemar LOC (pictured).

In total, AqualisBraemar LOC now has over 800 technical staff and specialist consultants in 303 locations worldwide, including 60 offices across 38 countries.

Within the oil and gas industry, AqualisBraemar LOC operates through three brands that going forward will continue to operate independently, whilst also cooperating closely to facilitate an even more complete service offering to clients:

• AqualisBraemar LOC: world-leading marine warranty and marine engineering consulting

• Longitude: independent engineering and design supporting oil and gas assets and projects, primarily to EPC contractors

• East Point Geo: specialist in geotechnical, geophysical and geological engineering and analyses

• JLA: marine surveyor and risk consultant specialising in MODUs

Energy transition commitment

AqualisBraemar LOC maintains its ambition that 50% of the group’s revenues should come from the renewables sector and other sustainability and CO2-reducing activities in 2025.

The enlarged organisation brings together the deepest pool of expertise across marine and engineering disciplines, including new capabilities in growth technology areas to support energy transition initiatives across the offshore landscape.

Oil and gas clients also benefit from the specialised knowledge of AqualisBraemar LOC’s extensive expertise in marine renewables and other GHG emissions-reduction technologies, enabling the group to support oil and gas industry clients in their energy transition journey.

“On the road to net-zero, many oil and gas companies are already actively increasing their foothold in green energy. Combining our long-term legacy in supporting some of the most complex offshore oil and gas projects, with the innovation and engineering power from across our group, we are well positioned to advise, support and help de-risk projects as clients across these markets look to transition to more sustainable practices,” adds David Wells.

AqualisBraemar LOC’s new website address will be www.abl-group.com.
