OEG Offshore Group ('OEG') has acquired a majority interest in the company by KKR, with the executive management retaining a significant holding in the company.
OEG manufactures and leases specialist Cargo Carrying Units which are essential items used by oil and gas operators and their service providers to transport equipment and supplies to and from rigs and platforms as part of their day-to-day offshore operations.
John Heiton, CEO of OEG, said: 'We have achieved significant growth in OEG to date but our teams have the appetite to accelerate our further development through both organic and acquisitive means. We believe that KKR will be an excellent partner to achieve those aims, given their global network and experience as a leading investor in the energy services sector. We are delighted to co-invest with KKR to develop OEG into a leading global provider of field support equipment to the offshore energy industry.'
