Set up just two years ago, Aberdeen-based flexible pipe specialist FlexTech has enjoyed an encouraging start to 2015 by securing two new contracts worth more than £250,000.

The projects – with two oil and gas majors – are both for on and offshore supporting operations in the UK and the North Sea. FlexTech will carry out flexible pipe and flexible pipe integrity work, covering offshore annulus testing and onshore life extension of flexible and subsea assets.

Craig Keyworth, Engineering Director, FlexTech, said: “The contracts separately cover two and three year service agreements with clients who the team has previously worked with, representing a solid commitment from our customers.

“In the current market relationship building is imperative, and at FlexTech we strive to offer significant advantages to our clients. Our fixed price work scopes, ensure efficiency and flexibility, while representing real world savings. “

FlexTech currently has a team of 12 subsea and marine specialists and aims to add a further five employees over the next 12 months. Its management team has more than 50 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry among them.

* Meanwhile, standby vessel operator Atlantic Offshore Rescue has appointed a new managing director for its UK division to lead the organisation from its Aberdeen base.  Matthew Gordon joined the company at the start of the year and replaces John Bryce, who is retiring. Gordon was previously general manager at Viking Seatech and spent eight years at Subsea-7.
