Dubai oil company Lamprell brings in M: Comms

The £700m oil services firm Lamprell has parted company with Citigate Dewe Rogerson and brought in M: Communications for a major City brief.

Lamprell is one of the five biggest firms currently listed on London's successful Alternative Investment Market (AIM). M: now represents three out of the largest ten AIM-quoted companies with Sibir Energy and Clipper Windpower also clients.

M: senior consultant Patrick d'Ancona heads the account. Before his previous post at comms agency Aquila, d'Ancona worked at former FTSE 100 oil firm Enterprise Oil as IR chief.

Lamprell provides specialised construction services to the oil and gas industry, breaking into the UK market in October 2006 through brokers Cazenove.

PRWeek understands the acc­ount is worth over £100,000 a year and was secured after a comp­etitive pitch against four agencies.

Dubai-based Lamprell said this month profit would be at the top end of analysts' forecasts and predicted a strong 2008 as dem­and for rig maintenance and oil equipment rises.
