Increased North Sea activity prompts TGP to boost presence in the region
Increased activity in the North Sea is resulting in growing demand for project forwarding services, which is a sign for TGP to expand its presence in the region. The company has opened an office in Aberdeen, its second office in Scotland.
With an increasing number of energy companies fuelling the rejuvenation of activity in North Sea exploration and production, TGP has moved to extend its global presence to ensure it is readily available to support customers both regionally and internationally.
“TGP has had an office presence in Grangemouth, Scotland, for 30 successful years, servicing clients throughout Scotland and from there to all corners of the globe beyond,” said Colin Charnock, group chief executive officer (CEO), TGP. “By turning our full attention to Aberdeen in the light of the resurgent North Sea energy market, as well as the renewables sector, TGP is positioning itself to support and service both existing and new clients.”
Ross Mackay to head the new office
The Aberdeen office will be headed up by Ross Mackay in his new role as general manager, Trans Global Projects, having previously served as business development manager – North.
“TGP prides itself on expanding its operations strategically to ensure it is in full readiness for future demand,” said Mackay. “This is a logical progression for the TGP Group and we are ready to support and assist with all project logistics management on whatever scale, throughout what is an exciting time for both the UK energy sector and the residents of Aberdeen.”
This year, TGP has significantly strengthened its presence in two other major offshore energy centres, Houston, USA, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, through the appointment of several incoming staff in anticipation of growing market demand for the group’s services.
