Aberdeenshire-based oil and gas services company ThinJack Ltd has secured work with new clients worth a six figure sum and expanded into new geographical territories so far this year.

During the first half of the company’s year, from April to September, ThinJack won new contracts approaching £500,000 and saw its global reach extend further into West Africa, including Equatorial Guinea – and additional international and UK contract announcements are expected shortly.

ThinJack is a steel envelope which can be inflated with up to 2,500 bar of hydraulic pressure to exert hundreds of tonnes of force, making it the ideal separating and jacking solution in hazardous, difficult or restricted areas. 

It also offers a specialist consultancy service proactively identifying potential flange problems and providing solutions.

Guy Bromby, Director, Thinjack Ltd, said: “We are delighted that more customers are seeing production gains and saving on drilling rig time by using the ThinJack service.

“To have started the year in such a positive way helps our suppliers and employment in Scotland, including an increase in staff numbers at ThinJack Ltd. We continue to work on securing longer term contracts which, in some cases, will last several years thereby ensuring the ongoing growth of our business and capability to offer additional services.”

Fellow Director Alastair MacDonald added: “Our strategy of building internationally on our North Sea success is bearing fruit, and confirms that there is a growing global demand for ThinJack’s unique technology service.”
