RPS moved its strategy for developing its business in Norway forward this week by establishing an office in Stavanger. This is the main oil and gas centre in Norway and having a presence there provides a platform to further develop RPS’ business and range of services offered to clients operating out of Stavanger.
The office has been established by acquiring an oil and gas consultancy, Delphi AS, whose office is located in central Stavanger. Delphi currently provides personnel to oil and gas companies working on field development projects, both in Norway and overseas. RPS will work with Delphi personnel to assist with the further development of this business whilst also promoting the broader range of RPS consultancy services.
This step builds on the acquisition of Oslo-based OEC which joined RPS in November 2013.
Knut Hegge, Managing Director or OEC and now RPS in Norway commented: “From the time we joined RPS we declared our intention to open an office in Stavanger. The acquisition of Delphi has provided this and gives us the opportunity to grow both our oil and gas business in Norway and also to develop further our other consulting services within the Norwegian market. Over the coming months we will work closely with our colleagues from the UK and our new friends in Stavanger to start this process.”
