Oilfield services company SIMMONS EDECO has opened its first base of operations in Denmark, following a recent contract award to provide wellhead maintenance services for wells in the Danish North Sea.

The new 6,000 square meter facility located in the seaport town of Esbjerg complements the company’s European headquarters in Great Yarmouth, England, which was upgraded and ‘dramatically expanded’ this past spring to further support operations throughout Europe, a company spokesperson said.

“The ability to provide a responsive and quality service to our client is paramount, and this new base of operations in Denmark will certainly play a key role in achieving those objectives,” said Gavin Sherwood, base manager for Denmark at SIMMONS EDECO, in a company statement.

“We are very proud of our recent entry into the Danish market, and look forward to supporting companies that operate in the region for many years. The new base also allows us to reach out much further into Northern Europe, which is critical for our future growth,” he added.

Last month, the company announced the appointment of Niels Versfeld as its new chief executive officer, effective October 1. Before joining SIMMONS EDECO, Versfeld served as general manager of Gibson Energy’s Environmental Services Division.
