With projects in the late eighties and early nineties like the Oseberg Jacket in the Norwegian North Sea, King Fahd Causeway in the Persian Gulf, the Goodwyn A Platform in Australian waters and Boston Harbor Sewage DDC expanded its track record in different industries on different environmental locations all over the world. Starting as a young company working in the USA, Europe, Middle East and Australia in the Oil & Gas, marine and civil industry DDC gained its well known and highly appreciated name.
After acquisition of Drilcon Benelux in 1998 Kamp Drilling Consultants B.V. became Dutch Drilling Consultants B.V. A strategic merger to serve the client in the best possible way as DDC portfolio was then expanded with the representation of well esteemed companies like Wirth, Klemm and Häny.
