Add Energy, an oil and gas upstream consultancy provider, has doubled its workforce in Aberdeen and Houston to 55 people as a result of recent UK and overseas contract wins.
And it plans to recruit another 10 people in the north east by the end of this year.
The contract wins, which include BP and two additional oil and gas operators and expansion into power generation, has allowed the company to secure the jobs for the next three years in its asset and integrity management division, despite the current low oil price environment.
Add Energy has recently seen an increase in business, acquiring a number of contracts for maintenance optimisation and cost saving solutions to support companies operating in the ‘lower for longer’ crude oil price environment.
Peter Adam, Executive Vice President, Add Energy, said: “We are thrilled to have increased the headcount in our Aberdeen office, especially at a time when many companies are looking to reduce personnel. We have endeavoured to recruit locally during the process to ensure opportunities for both the development and employment of graduate engineers in the city.
“Recruiting locally also allowed us to attain the local expertise and build a pool of highly experienced principle engineers to consult for our clients and also mentor and coach younger engineers for the future.”
