Our Executive Team

 

 

Mr. Kenneth Ferguson is the founder and Chairman of the Kenson Group of Companies. Prior to founding Kenson, Mr. Kenneth Ferguson worked for the then Amoco Trinidad Oil Company, now British Petroleum, with his last assignment being a Platform Superintendent.

 

It is this wealth of knowledge and experience garnered over some twenty four (24) years that Mr. Ferguson brought to Kenson through developing and mentoring the employees’ technical skills.

 

Kenson is a Service Contractor to Oil and Gas Companies in the Energy Sector in Trinidad and Tobago providing a full range of managed Operations and Maintenance services and technical support services to our clients Offshore Production Platforms and Onshore Facilities.


In 1994, the first company, Kenson Production Services Limited (KPSL) was born, employing a mere 10 employees, all of whom, under the direction of Kenneth Ferguson, provided highly skilled services to the client.

 

As demand for Kenson's services increased, a new company, Kenson Operational Services Limited (KOSL) was established in January 2000. By May 2000, PF Engineering & Construction Company Limited was formed. Thus creating the Kenson Group Of Companies, which can boast of employing well over 350 employees.

 

Mr. Ferguson saw the opportunity to fill a gap and seized that opportunity through establishing the Kenson School of Production Technology whose purpose initially was to offer job specific training to the young graduates coming out from the technical school so that a pool of talent could be generated to satisfy the needs of Kenson Production Services Limited and Kenson Operational Services Limited in meeting the needs of these multinational organizations.

 

Perhaps the schools pinnacle of success was Mr. Ferguson’s drive to offer such unique training internationally whereby the school currently trains students from Uganda and Nigeria. Our training programs are certified and accredited.

 

To date, as a 100% locally owned company, Kenson is a market leader and has contracts to provide quality services to our esteemed clients such as Repsol, Petrotrin, BHP Billington, EOG Resources, BGTT and BPTT.
