TULSA, Okla., and SYDNEY, Australia, June 5, 2020 – Stonebridge Consulting, a leading provider of business advisory and technology services for the energy industry, today announced its entry into the Australian market with the opening of a satellite office in Sydney.
The new office, at 100 Walker St. in North Sydney, is Stonebridge’s first outside the Continental United States. According to Stonebridge President Adam Hutchinson, the office will be home to a local team focused on providing Stonebridge’s services and solutions to upstream oil and gas companies in Australia and New Zealand.
“Our expansion into the greater Australian oil and gas market represents a historic milestone for us,” Hutchinson said. “Australian upstream operators represent a greenfield opportunity for Stonebridge. We have a deep reservoir of direct experience and deep domain expertise in oil and gas exploration and production – organizational structure, business processes, data dependencies, commercial software solutions, and more. And we can bring our know-how to bear for oil and gas companies operating in the region.”
Leading Stonebridge’s Australian operations is Paul Orfanos, a native Australian and recognized technology services visionary. As the regional executive director for Australia and New Zealand, Orfanos oversees a team of local consultants who will collaborate with Stonebridge’s US-based team to deliver client projects.
“We are very excited about Stonebridge’s prospects for success in the Australian market,” Orfanos said. “We have created a unique delivery model that makes the most of all of Stonebridge’s services and solutions, specifically the EnerHub data management platform and their Peloton Ready solution accelerators for Peloton’s industry standard oil and gas management software. By fielding project teams of Australian-based and US-based consultants with complementary skills, we’ll create fit-for-purpose business solutions that help our clients produce hydrocarbons faster, safer and more profitably.”
Australia’s oil and gas industry hit new production records in 2019, with more than 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent, representing a 16% year-on-year increase, according to consultancy EnergyQuest.
