David Rennie, international sector head for oil and gas at Scottish Enterprise, said: “We support companies to attend overseas events, such as OTC, to help them forge new contacts, strengthen existing ones and do new business. That’s exactly what RCP has done and I’d like to congratulate them on their success.

“RCP is an ambitious, forward thinking company which recognises the importance, particularly in the current climate, of expanding into overseas markets. We’ve been working intensively with RCP through our account management portfolio to support their international ambition and future growth plans, and today’s announcement marks a key milestone in that journey.”
