The company is also positioned to be at the forefront of the energy transition through its portfolio of innovative technology tailored to solving unique challenges,” said Scott Miller, Italmatch’s oil & gas sales & marketing director and recently appointed CEO of Aubin Group. “

The Scottish group’s portfolio includes projects in offshore wind developments as well as a disruptive solution to plug disused oil wells even in the harshest conditions, guaranteeing their long-term integrity and reducing their environmental impact.
