PDL to seek growth in the Asian market

The PDL group of companies has announced that Michael Shanley has been deployed to Singapore on a permanent basis to lead the growth of its Asian business.

Having founded PDL Solutions (Asia) Pte. Ltd. in 2014, over the course of the last two years, in his role as Vice President Asia, Michael has been a frequent visitor to Asia.

During that time, he has undertaken a detailed analysis of the opportunities within the seven safety-critical markets that PDL serves, defined the group’s service offering and the value proposition within each of those markets and identified the key Government organisations, prime contractors and supply chain companies.

Commenting on his permanent move to Singapore, PDL CEO, Paul Charlton, said “Michael’s presence in Singapore will enable us to respond to our clients’ ever increasing needs in a very timely manner and to further build the PDL profile and reputation within the Asian region.

“Based on our research to date, we have high hopes for growth in Asia and we have every confidence in Michael’s ability to secure that growth”.

As part of the profile raising activity for PDL Solutions (Asia) Pte. Ltd., Michael will speak at Subsea Asia in November. Subsea Asia runs alongside OSEA 2016, the 21st International Oil & Gas Industry Exhibition & Conference, which is being held at the Marina Bay Sands Conference Centre in Singapore from the 29th November - 2nd December 2016.

Michael will present a paper on how real time data & analytics can be used to describe what a subsea asset has seen in the past, predict what that subsea asset may see in the future, thenprescribe what intervention may be needed and when, to ensure that subsea asset remains fully operational.

Experts in the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Multibody Dynamics advanced engineering analysis toolsets, PDL engineers have supported some of the most technically demanding subsea projects for some of the most notable regional, national and international entities.

Michael said “Oil & gas is one of the seven core markets for PDL. Over the course of the last 16 years, we have establish an enviable reputation for pioneering the use of advanced analysis methodologies within the upstream oil & gas space and I’m delighted to be able to bring that learning and our expertise to our clients in Asia.

“Subsea Asia is the perfect platform to promote our capabilities within the upstream oil & gas market and I am looking forward to growing the PDL presence across all seven of our core market sectors within the entire Asia Pacific region”.
