Serikandi Oilfield Services Engineering Design Services (EDS SOS) with Petrofac as the Technical Partner, marked a milestone with its first anniversary celebration at the multi-purpose hall of KB Sentral Shopping Centre recently.

Chairman and Managing Director of Serikandi Group of Companies Shaikh Haji Khalid bin Shaikh Haji Ahmad was the guest of honour.

Project Director at EDS SOS Robert Worton said with a goal of becoming the leading Bruneian company in engineering design services, it was able to grow to more than over 200 staff over a short time.

“More importantly, we can see to grow even further in creating a long-term sustainable business while achieving Zero LTI (Lost Time Injury),” he added.

Shaikh Haji Khalid said despite a rough start, the company has grown and benefitted from technical partner Petrofac with excellent technical transfer plans and skills in line with the expectation of their clients.

He added that overcoming the challenges and at the same time embracing the opportunities ahead will help to further enhance credibility in delivering services.

A short video presentation highlighting EDS SOS first year as well as staff’s messages marking the company’s growth was also shown. The event continued with a cake-cutting ceremony by the guest of honour and executive committee members of Serikandi Group of Companies. A ribbon-cutting ceremony concluded the event.
