PDi strengthens market position
Posted: 22/09/15

Project Development International (PDi) Ltd, a leading provider of multi-disciplined engineering, project management and project services to the international energy industry, has secured more than £6million in project awards in 2015 to date.

Recent awards includes significant decommissioning scopes which have moved to strengthen PDi’s place in the UKCS decommissioning market, and subsea construction in projects in West Africa working both with operators and offshore contractors. PDi has a strong customer focus with the quality and safety of delivery at the forefront, which has led to repeat business from a number of clients.

To help drive the firm’s growth and build on its successful track record, a restructure of the Aberdeen based senior management team took place in 2014. This saw Mark Gillespie, David Andrew and Declan Slattery join as managing director, commercial manager and finance manager, respectively, whilst Donald MacLeod and Mark Brown were appointed as operations director and engineering manager.

Mark Gillespie, managing director at PDi said: “Despite challenging market conditions, PDi operates a well-balanced business model benefiting from clients operating and decommissioning expenditure rather than purely capital expenditure. This has seen PDi secure over £6million in project awards in 2015 to date, excluding intercompany awards.

“The strength of this backlog means our revenue visibility is better than it has been at any point since the new management team were introduced.”

Aberdeen-headquartered, with offices in London and Houston, PDi was established in 2003 to provide multi-disciplined engineering, project management, project services and training to the international oil, gas and renewables industry.

Mr Gillespie continued: “The PDi team is a blend of multi-discipline engineers, project managers and project services professionals. Having a team from a range of backgrounds, with an extremely high level of industry knowledge, means PDi has built a solid reputation for delivering quality, a reputation which continues to drive business growth in a complexed market.”
