The company

Founded in 2002 by its current management team, PD&MS is a fast-growing, specialist provider of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services for the global oil and gas industry, serving drilling, production and marine sectors. Operating in a niche market, its core capability is ‘brownfield’ design engineering services, utilising sophisticated project planning and design software tools to service drilling and production operators throughout the oil and gas market. With established operations in the North Sea and Azerbaijan, PD&MS Energy has strong customer relationships with major blue-chip operators such as BP and Apache.

The Inflexion difference

PD&MS wanted to bring on board an investment partner who could help grow market share through international expansion, support complementary acquisitions and introduce skilled individuals to their team to strengthen operations - all of which made us a strong fit. Having invested in 2014 we have been working closely with the management team to diversify both the customer base and range of services to deliver a business capable of sustained growth following the significant post investment movement in the oil price. Through investment into key strategic selling and ancillary business streams, PD&MS continues to take market share working for the most active clients in the North Sea and Azerbaijan including BP, Apache, Chrysaor and Shell as well as having diversified its core offering into the decommissioning market, rope access and front end engineering and design.
