Deep Sea Mooring (DSM) is expanding its international footprint with the opening of a new office in Perth, Australia. The facility, which will officially open 8 October, will provide sales and technical support to customers across Australasia.
To support its mooring operations, the company has also secured a 13,000m² yard in Karratha, 1500km north of Perth, which is a main access point to major oil and gas developments offshore Western Australia.
DSM CEO, Åge Straume, says the company has confidence in Australia’s future as a key global player in the offshore oil and gas industry.
“The number and size of developments offshore Australia has created a steady market for drilling rigs,” he explains, noting, “and with the local industry’s increasingly stringent standards we believe there’s now a strong foundation for long-term growth and success.
“Companies operating in Australia are very QHSE oriented,” Straume adds, “so they understand the benefits of quality mooring equipment, smarter mooring solutions and performing pre-laying in order to maximise uptime. This fits our profile and our offer is tailored to meet that market demand head on.”
