Oil and gas performance improvement specialist Salos Sunesis has carried out a management buy-out with director Grant Wallace acquiring the Aberdeen based company from founder Ty Crandall.

The company was set up in 1996 and during this time has assisted in the successful delivery of more than 70 high pressure high temperature wells around the world. 

Wallace joined the business in 2013 and saw an opportunity to develop their service offering, which now includes managed pressure drilling project services.

He has also brought industry stalwart Bob Dickson onto the management team as operations manager.

Dickson has held senior positions such as sub-sea wells manager with Talisman and has over 35 years’ experience in the industry covering many aspects of drilling engineering and management.  He has managed projects in the North Sea, Middle East, Russia, Norway and North Africa.

Wallace, managing director at Salos Sunesis, said: “Transferring knowledge from these challenging wells, Salos provides coaching and training to maximise efficiency whilst ensuring safe well delivery and the MBO has allowed the team to build on the last two decades of expertise.  

“We are seeing strong signs of the sector recovering and Bob’s appointment is another indication of our drive and ambition to grow.”
