Solutions for Contracting in Gulf of Mexico

Recruiter Case Study:

An Oil & Gas consultancy from the UK had won the contract for several positions on an Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico. They were planning to send a mix of Europeans and Americans on the project. This meant they required work permits for some of the contractors and they required a US payroll service. Additionally their client, a well known Oil company, required them to have a level of insurance cover. They didn't have an office in the USA and didn't have the time or inclination to incorporate there. They had used Contractor Taxation previously staffing a project in Saudi Arabia and when they approached us for this deal we hooked them into our local partner in the US. They have setup an American umbrella company with the required insurances to cover high-risk workers such as those on an offshore Oil Rig. They were able to organise the work permits, run the local payroll and ensure all contractors were fully compliant.
