05 Dec Wellpro Group Feature in OGV Energy Magazine’s November Issue
Wellpro Group were delighted to feature in the November issue of OGV Energy Magazine. Aptly, it was the international growth edition.
Inside, we discuss our innovative well intervention solutions, the unrivalled technical expertise of our team, our focus on creating next generation talent and our commitment to the Eastern Hemisphere market.
Some key points of interest from our feature article are as follows.
People are the cornerstone of our success. Sean McCluskey, our Middle East Regional Manager and Niall Murray, our Asia Regional Operations Manager, are amongst some of the industry’s longest-serving and most-highly experienced well intervention experts. Many of the team bring with them track records of 25+ years to our operations. These industry experts have played an instrumental role in developing the company; building and retaining the best well intervention talent as we continue to grow and diversify.
A Sustainable Future
We’re proud that our regional workforces are comprised of a large percentage of local personnel and we’re committed to the development of local talent that will carry the Wellpro Group reputation for outstanding service over the coming decades. This is exemplified by our recent appointment of two engineering graduates, based in Dubai and KSA, from where they are undergoing a competency training programme whilst gaining invaluable day-to-day operational training.
As part of the company’s strategic growth plans, Wellpro Group now designs and manufactures thru tubing and well intervention tools. In addition to facilitating accelerated market entry, this
means we also have the ability to support clients’ bespoke operational requests and address the most demanding of challenges. To support and drive this growth we have recently hired Alistair Gill as Senior Design Engineer, based in Dubai. A Chartered Engineer with over 12 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, he has been at the forefront of technology within various R&D departments and brings an extensive knowledge of both well completions and well intervention technology to the business.
Eastern Hemisphere Focus
Wellpro Group demonstrated its commitment to the Middle East with the seven-figure acquisition of a Dubai-based thru tubing and rental provider. This was quickly followed by an organic startup in South East Asia, which has resulted in Wellpro Group becoming one of the leading well intervention companies in the region. We have grown across the Eastern Hemisphere to provide an agile, flexible response via our strategically-positioned facilities in the UK, United Arab Emirates, Kurdistan, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Thailand. Each location provides an established base of operations, workshop facilities and extensive rental equipment portfolios.
Providing Exclusive Access to Technology
We are the provider of a number of technologies across the Middle East, North Africa and Asian energy markets, via strategic alliances with downhole technology developer and manufacturer Omega Well Intervention, and Australian-based manufacturer of inflatable technology, IPI Packers. In conjunction with Wellpro Group’s technical engineering support and service delivery via the provision of wellsite personnel, these agreements have created a highly responsive, complete well intervention solution for our customers, reducing costs and increasing service efficiency via a single source.
