Media Release: Hunting appoints new regional manager for Norway as it targets Scandinavian market


LEADING energy firm, Hunting Energy Services, has appointed a new regional manager for Norway as it targets a period of strategic growth within the Scandinavian oil and gas market.

The firm has welcomed Ørjan Frøyland to the role, who will be responsible for overseeing the establishment of the Hunting brand within the region, with a particular focus on the growing Norwegian and Danish markets.

Ørjan brings nearly 20 years of experience to the position, having previously worked within some of the world’s leading energy sector firms.

Initially based in Sandnes, Ørjan will be tasked with developing the use of Hunting’s range of well construction, well completion and well intervention products as the firm looks to expand its reputation forged through successful periods of operating within the North Sea, USA and Asia Pacific markets.

Bruce Ferguson, Hunting’s managing director, is delighted to welcome Ørjan onboard and has heralded his appointment and the subsequent establishment of a presence within Norway as an exciting development for the firm.

He said: “Hunting already has a successful track record in Norway, with our specialist equipment being used by a number of operators within the region and the establishment of a full time presence within the country will give us the platform upon which we can react nimbly to market demands as we consolidate our worldwide offering to existing and prospective clients.

“Ørjan’s expertise and experience of the Scandinavian market really does speak for itself and we’re delighted to welcome him to Hunting at what is an incredibly exciting time for the growth of the firm.”

Ørjan Frøyland added: “Hunting has a very strong reputation as a leading supplier of energy services throughout the world and I’m looking forward to adding to this further as we look to capitalise on the opportunities that we’ve identified within the Scandinavian market.

“Hunting’s strength very much lies in its range of products that it currently offers and to be given the chance to promote these throughout the region really is exciting; I can’t wait to play my part in future successes.”

Hunting PLC is an international energy services provider which manufactures and distributes products enabling the extraction of oil and gas for some of the world’s leading companies.

Established in 1874, it is a fully listed public company trading on the London Stock Exchange.
