EXCEED, an industry-leading specialist in delivering well management and performance improvement solutions to the energy sector, has announced the launch of EXCEED Australia, as it eyes the country’s burgeoning decommissioning sector and a revitalised offshore market.

The company continues to implement an unwavering strategy of international expansion with its fifth overseas entity, which builds upon recent expansion into Mexico and Norway

Brad Girdwood has been nominated to steer the ship, after his appointment as Operations Manager, Australia. He brings 30+ years’ local and international experience to EXCEED Australia.

Girdwood commented, “In the pipeline for some years, the time is now right for EXCEED to make its mark upon the region. In particular, significant legislative developments surrounding the decommissioning of Australia’s offshore and onshore assets have accelerated the sector’s timeline. Honed in the North Sea, EXCEED’s spectrum of decommissioning capability provides this evolving US$40.5bn market with critical experience and expertise.”

In with ICON

EXCEED’s entry into the local decommissioning and well management market is bolstered by the advent of a collaborative relationship with Perth-based oil and gas services provider, ICON Engineering.

EXCEED Managing Director, Ian Mills said, “ICON’s impressive track record in delivering unrivalled innovative, practical turnkey solutions to the offshore field development industry in both facilities and in support of drilling operations is entirely congruent with our approach across all stages of the well lifecycle.

“Since 2010, EXCEED has built upon its well management service through the development and implementation of efficient intervention and abandonment programmes, expertly executed in full compliance with all North Sea regularity requirements. Initially, our joint objective with ICON is to provide the emerging Australian decommissioning sector with the end-to-end project service it requires, with full focus upon compliance, safety and efficiency.”
