Following the recent brand transition of Transfield Worley (TW) Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the WorleyParsons Group to become WorleyParsons New Zealand Ltd, INTECSEA has taken the opportunity to expand its presence into New Zealand.
This expansion is a key step in delivering the global strategy, and will help strengthen INTECSEA and WorleyParsons’ market position in Australia and New Zealand. Philip (Phil) Furr will lead the upstream offshore and subsea business across New Zealand as Offshore and Subsea Manager, based in the New Plymouth office.
Commenting on the expansion and growth opportunities in New Zealand, Bernard Mackin, Senior Vice President for INTECSEA ANZ said, “We are excited to officially include INTECSEA New Zealand as part of the ANZ subsea and floating systems business offering. Local presence of a WorleyParsons and INTECSEA branded office demonstrates our commitment to generating a full wellhead to market offering for our customers.”
“We are familiar with several customers in New Zealand, having supported the TW NZ operation with business development and proposals in the past. The brand extension of INTECSEA into the New Zealand market will help strengthen these relationships and broaden opportunities to better serve our customers throughout the region,” he added.
Some of the key projects and proposals supported in New Zealand include: New Zealand Steel, Taharoa Calm Buoy Life Extension and Relocation, OMV Raroa FPSO, Offloading Hose Specification, AWE FPSO Umuroa FPSO Swivel Inspection and Repair Option Assessment, Refining NZ, TSA Subject Matter Expert Agreement for Marine Systems
Keith Nutting, Location Director for WorleyParsons New Zealand, also commented on INTECSEA and expansion into New Zealand, stating that “I have enjoyed a very good relationship with INTECSEA both in Canada and the UK, and look forward to working with Bernard and the team in New Zealand. INTECSEA’s leadership in deepwater subsea and floating systems coupled with our topsides and onshore processing facilities capabilities in New Zealand will enable delivery of a true integrated full field development solution for our customers.”
