Abderdeen, UK – 10 February 2015 – GAC UK is sharpening its commercial and operational focus on the oil and gas sector with the appointment of two managers to serve clients with offshore operations.
Adrian Henry has been appointed Offshore Manager for the UK, in addition to his responsibilities as Branch Manager of GAC Shetland. Based in Shetlands, he acts as a link between customers from the oil and gas sector and GAC’s branch offices around the UK to ensure that efficient, safe and timely service is delivered whenever and wherever it is needed.
Michael Henderson has been promoted from Agency Manager to Branch Manager of GAC Aberdeen and is
charged with the task of taking GAC’s portfolio of shipping, logistics and marine support services offered at the key oil and gas port to the next level.
GAC UK’s Shipping Manager Duncan Heseltine says: “We provide our customers with one point of contact, efficient local service, administration and accurate billing. Our hands-on support and in-depth knowledge of the business allow us to understand the demands placed on our customers, and we are streamlining ourselves to better cater to their requirements.”
This latest development reflects GAC’s long-term commitment to the offshore energy industry. The recent fall in the oil prices have not affected all operations in the North Sea and elsewhere in UK waters, as many projects in the area are at the mature stage, with the initial exploration and drilling investment made several years ago. For such projects, extraction goes on – and so does GAC’s operational support.
