International energy consultancy Xodus Group has grown its team in Perth, Australia by almost 50% after a batch of new contract wins in the Asia-Pacific region over the last twelve months.
Xodus said on Thursday that its APAC office saw its revenue increase by more than half and had secured A$1.2 million ($860.000) worth of work in the first few weeks of 2019.
The company added that the start of the year had led to the creation of new jobs and the company expects more additions over the next few months.
Simon Allison, Xodus operations director for the APAC region, said: “Last year was our strongest year since we opened the Perth office in 2012. We have had a very positive start to 2019 which is allowing us to strengthen our team in key areas such as field development, where we are expecting a rise in new projects this year.
“After a tough few years for the industry, it’s positive to see an increase of activity in Western Australia. As well as our Australian work, we’re also growing our presence in South East Asia where we have established relationships with several key players in the region.”
