JDR has expanded its presence in West Africa through a partnership agreement with Proserv Instrumentation Nigeria.
Under the strategic alliance, JDR will establish a service and maintenance base in Proserv’s operations facility in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
Together, the companies will offer combined subsea solutions and local content support to the West African market. JDR’s offering will include maintenance and offshore installation services, product termination and testing and technical training, the company explained.
Carl Pilmer, sales director for oil and gas at JDR, said: “This alliance will enable JDR to increase local content support for projects in Nigeria and the wider region. We’re proud to work alongside Proserv to better service our clients with integrated solutions and develop the local skills needed to execute projects.”
Olu Phillips, Proserv country manager based in Lagos, added: “Nigeria is a key growth market for Proserv and given the very dynamic opportunities in the region, we are delighted to formalize our working relationship with JDR with the signing of this new strategic alliance.”
The partnership follows the appointment of business development manager, Tai Fadipe-Davids last year, to lead JDR’s strategic sales and marketing activities in the region.
