North Sea E&P business transitions deliver £800k of new business for AAB

North Sea E&P business transitions deliver £800k of new business for AAB

Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading independent firms of chartered accountants and business advisors, has reported a substantial uplift in demand for its services in the upstream Exploration & Production (E&P) sector. 

AAB has won more than £800,000 of new business in 2019 so far, with the current trend for North Sea assets and businesses changing ownership showing no signs of abating.

AAB’s proactive approach to staying in tune with new market entrants and emerging businesses in the North Sea has seen them corner the market in E&P business transition projects and recurring work in the past three years.

In fact, E&P business transition wins now account for more than a third of the total AAB E&P sector budget in the current financial year, highlighting its ongoing growth potential. 

AAB’s business transition services include payroll transfer, set-up and management, accounting support including IFRS conversion, financial support and reporting, joint venture support, systems support and full virtual outsourcing solutions.

Made up of more than 40 highly trained members of staff, the AAB E&P team also includes specialist associates from their wholly owned joint venture audit business, John F Daly Associates.

Alasdair Green, Head of E&P Strategy commented: “Traditionally AAB is very well known for delivering accountancy and business advisory services in the oil services sector. In recent years, however, we spotted that the E&P sector has significant growth potential to the firm. As a result, it now accounts for more than 20% of our oil and gas revenues, and we believe we can grow our share of the E&P sector even further both in the UK and overseas. It is especially encouraging for us to secure high quality new clients in the North Sea, as we continue this exciting phase of changing ownership.”
