Ramboll Oil & Gas Sets Up Shop in Abu Dhabi

Ramboll Oil & Gas has established a new branch office in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Mr. Jesper Thomsen, who was appointed Branch Manager May 1, 2008, is busy with all the formalities of establishing a new office.
Mr. Thomsen has been with Ramboll for 8 years and has worked in Ramboll's offices in Esbjerg and Copenhagen before moving to Abu Dhabi.

"I look forward to this new challenge and find it exciting to be part of this strategic development of Ramboll Oil & Gas," said Thomsen. "Our engineering consultancy services are relevant for numerous aspects of the oil and gas industry in the Middle East. We have been in Qatar for almost 15 years and with the positive match between our services and development plans in the Middle Eastern oil industry it seemed a logical next step to open another office in the region. Abu Dhabi was in fact the world’s third largest oil exporter in 2007 and there is considerable potential for expansion."

At the moment Mr. Thomsen is setting up meetings with potential customers in the whole UAE region and has presented the Ramboll Oil & Gas name to several notable companies. Simultaneously recruitment activities for building up a core staff have been initiated.

Earlier this summer Executive Director John Sørensen visited the new Abu Dhabi premises, which are located with Whitby & Bird, a part of Ramboll Whitbybird.

"We are very pleased with this new addition to the ROG family tree," said Sørensen. "We expect the Middle East to become a vital part of our future business potential and we are confident that Mr. Thomsen is the right choice as our Branch Manager. I am sure we will secure our first projects soon."
