An Aberdeen-based well engineering and project management company has marked five years in business by opening new bases across the globe to meet growing demand.

Zenith Energy, which provides a range of services to the oil and gas sector within the UK and internationally through its Aberdeen headquarters, has opened offices in Abu Dhabi and in Perth,  western Australia, following new contract wins.

The specialist firm has built its client base to more than 34, with continued repeat business, since its establishment in 2012, going from a two-man business, to a global organisation employing 23 people.

The firm provides specialist expertise for the complete well life cycle from the conceptual design phases through to field development planning, well operations, well intervention and well abandonments, using both rig and rig-less solutions.

During the first quarter of 2017 Zenith expanded its client base and successfully completed work in the UK, Italy and Equatorial Guinea for new and existing clients.

Martin Booth, Managing Director, Zenith Energy, said: “We have experienced the highs and lows of oil price and one of the longest, worst recessions in the oil industry that most of us remember. However, five years later we are still here, growing and developing our company and capabilities.

“We are now looking forward to the next five years from a position of strength in the market and an ability to deliver in a low-cost environment.”

Meanwhile, Tendeka – another Aberdeen-based oil services firm – has won a contract to supply the Kuwait Oil Company with its inflow control device which will enhance production through more effective reservoir management.

The multi-million-pound deal will involve Tendeka installing Advanced ICD equipment in 55 horizontal wells over two years in Northern Kuwait.

Scott Watters, Chief Operating Officer with Tendeka, said: “This marks the first independent service company to win such a significant lower completion contract in the Gulf region.”

Established in 2009 and headquartered in Aberdeen, Tendeka operates 18 bases located at energy hubs around the world.
