28 October 2022 – Global energy and marine consultancy ABL Group (ABL) establishes an entity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Donald MacMillan will head up the new entity, alongside his roles as ABL’s country manager in KSA and Bahrain.
The decision follows a new investment licence being granted by the Ministry of Investment of Saudi Arabia (MISA).
The new entity, which once commercial registration has been completed, will be named ABL Marine Services LLC. The entity has been granted a license for a number of marine and offshore activities. The list includes marine surveys and inspections, marine warranty surveys, marine casualty management services, construction and repair of ports, docks and marine facilities, towing operations and more.
“We have been servicing our clients in KSA since 2013. With increased demand for our services in recent years, establishing this new entity is the next step for us to ensure we continue to best meet our clients’ requirements and enables us to maintain and expand our position as the premier marine, offshore and renewables consultancy in the Kingdom. Our business philosophy is to be a local expert and a global partner for our customers. This is a key reason for establishing an entity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,”Ben Lazenby, ABL’s regional managing director for Middle East and India.
The new office in Saudi Arabia adds to an already extensive ABL presence in the Middle East. The company is already present in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in United Arab Emirates; Cairo, Egypt; Manama, Bahrain; and Doha, Qatar.
ABL is part of ABL Group ASA, which is listed on the Oslo stock exchange.
