STATS Group (STATS) has significantly strengthened its presence in Australia and the wider Asia Pacific (APAC) hydrocarbon sector.
According to the company’s announcement, it has secured several landmark projects, gained increased market recognition, and expanded its team in the region, demonstrating its commitment to long-term growth and success in APAC.
STATS’ expertise in pipeline repair, maintenance, and isolation technologies has been instrumental in securing new projects across the region.
In Western Australia, the company has been awarded inaugural projects by major operators, including Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG), ATCO Gas, and APA. These projects showcase STATS’ ability to deliver innovative and reliable solutions to complex pipeline challenges.
In Malaysia, STATS has built upon its established track record with a new exclusive supply arrangement with E&P O&M Services Sdn Bhd (EPOMS).
The strategic agreement covers STATS’ pipeline hot tapping, plugging, and inline isolation services, including the market-leading BISEP and Remote Tecno Plug (RTP) system. The partnership strengthens STATS’ position in Malaysia and opens up new opportunities for collaboration with EPOMS.
STATS expanded its regional presence by appointing Boyke Sembiring as East Asian Sales Manager, based in Jakarta, Indonesia. This appointment reflects the company’s commitment to the growing Indonesian market and its ambition to become a leading provider of regional pipeline technology solutions.
“This has been one of our busiest and most successful periods in terms of project activity and increased turnover in the APAC market. We have taken a long-term view, and from our initial market entry in Australia we have continually invested in infrastructure and people, starting out by setting up a base in Perth and expanding east and northwards,” commented Gareth Campbell, STATS Regional Manager for Asia Pacific.
“Our decision to appoint Boyke Sembiring as East Asian Sales Manager underlines our commitment to the Indonesian market, and our first project in Indonesia is a testament to our growing presence in the region,” added Campbell.
As global oil and gas operators transition towards net zero carbon emission targets, STATS is well-positioned to support their efforts by repurposing existing assets and piping infrastructure for hydrogen, Carbon Capture Storage (CCS), and other decarbonization projects.
STATS’ deep knowledge base of pipeline infrastructure and its innovative technologies make it an ideal partner for companies seeking to extend the lifespan of their assets and reduce their environmental impact.
“Our technology, and particularly our isolation tools, are ideally suited to projects that will look to repurpose older or redundant assets, and we are alert to playing a positive role in hydrogen and CCS projects and other innovative schemes that will emerge in the region in the not too distant future,” said Campbell.
STATS Group’s commitment to innovation, customer service, and local expertise has been instrumental in its success in Australia and the wider APAC region. The company is well-positioned to continue its growth trajectory and play a leading role in the region’s energy transition efforts.
