Bluefield Geoservices (Bluefield), a subsea geotechnical services provider with operations in the UK and US, today announced details of the company’s most recent phase of expansion, which includes the opening of a state-of-the-art facility in Bedlington, England with convenient access to the Port of Blyth. Bluefield’s new location will be used both to service existing geotechnical equipment and as an engineering hub for future product development.
“Cutting the ribbon on our latest site, one that offers immediate access to the Port of Blyth, is an exciting step for Bluefield Geoservices and represents another milestone in our ongoing mission to service North Sea operators with best-in-class offshore geotechnical support, and to act as the hub for our technology R&D program,” commented Bluefield Geoservices’ Vice President of Global Sales & Business Development Mike Fearn.
With offices in Bath, UK, Rhode Island, US, and Florida, US, Bluefield was founded in 2018 and quickly set about establishing a fresh approach to expert subsea geoservices. With demand for integrated geotechnical survey solutions in high demand on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond, in recent years the Bluefield management has made a series of significant investments in personnel and equipment to ensure that the firm is resource-ready to serve the offshore energy sector with subsea site investigation proposals that deliver quality data on time and on budget.
To further fuel the company’s strategic commercial operations, Bluefield also recently appointed Patrick O’Donnell to the position of Business Development Lead. Mr. O’Donnell, who brings over 20 years of senior commercial experience of working in the offshore oil and gas industry to Bluefield, will be responsible for cultivating new and existing partnerships with North Sea developers.
“We are delighted to welcome Patrick to the team at this exciting stage of Bluefield’s expansion plans,” continued Fearn. “Since its inception, the Bluefield vision has been to challenge the status quo of the offshore geotechnical investigation services industry. For us, that means understanding the shifting requirements of our commercial partners and responding to this demand with the right personnel, the right tools, in the right place, and for the right price. Our new facility in the north of England and our commitment to growing a leading team of commercial specialists serve as validation of this customer-centric pledge.”
