NEWS / June 16, 2020

Fulkrum, a global provider of technical personnel specialising in QA/QC, inspection and vendor surveillance services to the energy industry, has taken in Oceaneering’s third party inspection division – including two key members of staff. 

Joining Fulkrum’s team in Aberdeen are industry veterans, Kelly McKimmie and Mike Christie. Kelly joins Fulkrum with nearly 3 decades of experience as a Senior Inspection Coordinator and Mike Christie, a Senior Inspector and Technical Advisor, joins under the same title bringing with him 35 years’ industry experience. 

Fulkrum will provide third party inspection services, including temporary equipment inspection to several key operators and contractors, including Chrysoar and Oceaneering itself. 

Speaking about the handover from Oceaneering, Owen Gibbons, Fulkrum’s Commercial Director said “We had been working with Oceaneering to provide inspection services for some time now, so this partnership made perfect sense. We’re delighted to have supported Oceaneering as they streamline their service offering and as a result, we have gained two fantastic members of staff and a portfolio of more than a dozen exciting new clients.”

Kelly and Mike bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge that is invaluable, they’ll fit right in with our existing team in Aberdeen and globally.”

Fulkrum opened its Aberdeen office in 2018, having gained traction in the market during the oil and gas downturn, setting down roots in the city. From this office, they support clients in the UK, continental Europe and Africa.
