ENERGY services company Senergy is increasing the number of employees in its survey and geo-engineering team on the back of contract wins in Australia, Norway and the UK.
After hiring ten further staff to reach 46, the Aberdeen-based firm’s geo-engineering division is expected to grow to 55 across offices in Bath, Perth, Australia and Stavanger, Norway.
The company has also been awarded a Norwegian “framework agreement” which marks the first time that it has been asked to supply personnel for Statoil’s projects on the Norwegian continental shelf.
Phil Edwards, head of survey and geo-engineering at Senergy, said: “The strong growth we are experiencing across our operations is indicative of the increasing market demand for our specialist, integrated services. As a result, the business expansion has led to a substantial increase in resources and capabilities for clients.”
Established in 2005, Senergy employs more than 700 people across a 19-strong office network in the Americas, Australia, the Middle East, Scandinavia and South East Asia.
l Oil and gas skills body Opito has appointed John McDonald, a former director of the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), as its managing director. McDonald has taken over the reins from Larraine Boorman who stood down in August.
David Doig, chief executive of the industry-owned, not-for-profit organisation, said: “John joins us at an exciting time in our development as we embark on a new era in terms of how we engage with industry, government and education.”
