North East England is home to world-class renewable energy, marine and offshore industries, so when leading international energy logistics provider, Peterson, was seeking to open a new project office in the UK, South East Northumberland with its strong transport links and proximity to the Central North Sea was the obvious choice.

Peterson specialises in providing integrated logistics solutions to market leaders in the oil and gas, renewable and nuclear energy sectors around the world. The company is involved in supporting decommissioning of North Sea oil and gas assets which has an estimated market value of £40bn by 2030. Peterson is also focused on new wind farm projects and the provision of onshore and offshore logistics, warehouse and inventory management solutions for the marine, oil and gas and wind sectors.

Investing in the right location within the North East was essential for Peterson to capitalise on new opportunities to develop its service offering and delivery capacity for the energy sector. This is where the expertise of the Business Team was ideally placed to help Peterson realise its ambitions for strategic growth. The company benefited from support through the Business Inward Investment Service to identify potential property options, gain information and commercial insight into local and regional energy networks and links to potential supply chains through its partners at Port of Blyth.

Meanwhile the Commercial Team provided Peterson with high-quality office accommodation in its Blyth Workspace facility at Commissioners Quay with scope for the company to expand its operations and create new jobs.
