Repsol handpicks headhunter to staff its Norwegian onshore and offshore assets

AGR, part of Oslo-listed energy and marine consultancy group ABL Group, has won a frame agreement with Repsol Norge, a subsidiary of Spain’s energy giant Repsol, to scout and recruit energy professionals, which will handle the Norwegian oil and gas firm’s onshore and offshore operations in the Nordic country.

Under the call-off contract, AGR Consultancy will source a specialist workforce for all of Repsol’s Norwegian facilities. The duration of the frame agreement is four years, with two additional two-year options.

The expert staff is expected to provide services in areas such as drilling and wells, geology and subsurface, health, safety, and environment (HSE), logistics, operations, maintenance, decommissioning, administrative support, and cost control.

“We provide specialist competence and additional capacity to operators and other companies in the global energy industry, including oil and gas and renewable energy, when and where they need it. We look forward to collaborating with Repsol Norge to help solve their skills requirements over the coming years,” said Thomas Veseth Saue, manager of AGR Consultancy’s Norwegian operation.

Following the announcement that AGR would buy compatriot firm Ross Offshore in May, the acquisition was completed last week. This is expected to enhance the Norwegian player’s area of expertise in wells, reservoirs, and marine and survey management.

Meanwhile, Repsol has been venturing into hydrogen, as illustrated by a memorandum of understanding (MoU) the firm signed with Petronor, KLM, and the Port of Amsterdam to explore options for producing synthetic aviation fuel (SAF) and hydrogen-based synthetic aviation fuel (e-SAF) in Bilbao.
