EPC Offshore has won the Subsea Company of the Year title at the Subsea UK Business Awards 2013.
The top accolade, which acknowledges excellence and achievement in the subsea industry, was awarded to EPC Offshore in recognition of its rapid growth, technical excellence and commitment to staff development and training.
The company’s recent successes include a major contract to select the optimum concept for the development of Hurricane’s Lancaster Field, one of the most significant oil discoveries in the West of Shetland in recent years.
The presentation was made at last night’s prestigious ceremony at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in front of more than 600 industry leaders and guests.
Keith Wallace, EPC Offshore’s chief executive, said: “Being named subsea company of the year is a great achievement for us and is testament to the hard work, commitment and professionalism of each member of our team across the company.
“The subsea industry is experiencing very exciting times and we are proud to be part of that growth. Our ability to turn opportunities into assets is helping the industry take on more challenging projects in deeper and harsher environments, improve the ability to capitalise on marginal developments and further increase the life of the North Sea.
“We will continue to invest in the development of our people, our systems and technology to ensure that EPC Offshore continues to offer the industry the most advanced solutions in this increasingly challenging sector.” EPC Offshore works with exploration and production companies to progress projects to sanction and final delivery. It uses a comprehensive and structured set of principles to achieve maximum project value, optimum resource utilization and quality assurance.
The company has experienced rapid growth since it was established in 2009, executing in excess of £20million worth of project management work in its third year and doubling its employee numbers to 75 people based at two offices in Aberdeen, as well as a team in Surrey.
EPC Offshore expects this to rise to 115 as it pursues its ambitious growth strategy during its fourth year in business.
