Aqualis Offshore opens consultancy office in Doha

The offshore marine and engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore is continuing to expand its international presence as the company opens a new office in Doha, Qatar.

Aqualis Offshore, part of Norway-based Aqualis ASA, has opened 16 offices across 11 countries worldwide since the company was established just over two years ago. The group employs 230 consultants with expertise in the offshore industry. Aside from the oil and gas industry, the company also focuses on renewable energy consulting.

The Doha office joins Aqualis hubs around the GCC region. Aqualis Offshore has offices in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi), and now also Qatar.

"National oil companies, independents and rig owners operating out of Qatar have asked us to support them with both engineering and oilfield services projects,” Reuben Segal, the company’s director in the Middle East, said. “We want to provide them with the highest possible level of service, so it makes perfect sense to have a permanent presence in Qatar.”

Segal said the new Doha office will focus on field installations, engineering design, engineering warranty, construction supervision, marine warranty services and rig moving for jack-ups.

Aqualis Offshore is a specialized marine and offshore engineering consultancy focusing on the shallow and deep-water segments of the offshore oil, gas and wind industries.
