An energy services company based in Great Yarmouth has welcomed the chief executive of Oil and Gas UK to its newly opened centre of excellence.

Deirdre Michie was given a tour of Proserv’s 65,000 sq ft facility, marking the official launch of Share Fair, Oil and Gas UK’s business development event.

Iain Smith, Proserv’s UK regional president, said: “We were delighted to welcome Deirdre to Artemis House which highlights our commitment to the industry and, of course, the area. It was not only an opportunity to showcase our contribution to the industry, but we were able to champion the issues that companies, like ourselves, are encountering.

Ms Michie added: “The East of England is a major energy hub for our industry. Supply chain companies such as Proserv contribute to the UK’s global exports of almost £12bn of goods and services. Building on this success is critical not only for our industry, but for the UK’s economy.”
