STATS Group (STATS) is targeting further growth in the Asia Pacific region and has appointed Angus Bowie as regional director to spearhead its expansion plans.
Bowie takes on the position, extending his existing role as regional director for the Middle East North Africa, which he has held for six years.
The pipeline technology company recently opened an operational base in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and will combine its operational resources in the Middle East, which includes a 50-strong team, to bolster contract opportunities in Malaysia, China, Australia and the wider Asia Pacific region.
UK-based STATS provides pipeline testing, repair and integrity services, including the design, supply and provision of specialised test, intervention and isolation tools, to the international oil and gas industry, and this year expects to deliver more than 200 major isolation projects using its patented Tecno Plug and BISEP pipeline intervention technologies.
STATS Group chief executive officer, Leigh Howarth, said: “We have made steady progress in the Asia Pacific region, winning a number of contracts with new clients, and are confident this will be a strategically important sector in the years ahead.
“Angus Bowie is highly regarded in the international pipeline community. His wealth of experience in developing and promoting our business will prove instrumental in expanding our footprint in key Asia Pacific territories.”
