EXCEED has announced the launch of EXCEED Australia, as it eyes the country’s burgeoning decommissioning sector and a revitalised offshore market.

The company, which received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade earlier this year, continues to implement an unwavering strategy of international expansion with its fifth overseas entity, which builds upon recent expansion into Mexico and Norway.

Appointed as Operations Manager, Australian industry stalwart and ex-Add Energy VP of Well Management and Engineering, Brad Girdwood, brings 30+ years’ local and international experience to EXCEED Australia. Explaining the rationale behind the company’s latest development, he said:

'In the pipeline for some years, the time is now right for EXCEED to make its mark upon the region.  In particular, significant legislative developments surrounding the decommissioning of Australia’s offshore and onshore assets have accelerated the sector’s timeline. Honed in the North Sea, EXCEED’s spectrum of decommissioning capability provides this evolving $40.5billion market with critical experience and expertise.'

EXCEED’s entry into the local decom and well management market is bolstered by the advent of a collaborative relationship with Perth-based oil and gas services provider, ICON Engineering.

EXCEED Managing Director, Ian Mills comments: 'ICON’s impressive track record in delivering unrivalled innovative, practical turnkey solutions to the offshore field development industry in both facilities and in support of drilling operations is entirely congruent with our approach across all stages of the well lifecycle.

'Since 2010, EXCEED has built upon its well management service through the development and implementation of efficient intervention and abandonment programmes, expertly executed in full compliance with all North Sea regularity requirements. Initially, our joint objective with ICON is to provide the emerging Australian decommissioning sector with the end-to-end project service it requires, with full focus upon compliance, safety and efficiency.'

Active in 38 countries worldwide, EXCEED has project managed 70 wells, delivered performance improvement services to over 40 well projects and supported the delivery of 130 decommissioned wells in the UK. The company is now positioned to lead clients’ energy transformation, applying its well management expertise to CCS, geothermal, blue hydrogen and gas storage projects. 

Established in 1997, ICON is renowned for its innovative approach, successfully delivering facilities and drilling support projects across the world’s major oil regions.
