An oil consultancy has underlined its confidence in north east Scotland by opening a new office in Aberdeen.
Oil & Gas UK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie recently performed the official opening of the new Aberdeen office of Fraser Well Management, which has its headquarters in Great Yarmouth.
The company has managed 60 wells in its 11-year history providing well engineering studies from relief well planning through to due diligence and well abandonment feasibility studies.
The addition of the Aberdeen office is seen as crucial in both broadening its UK base and assisting in future ambitions to expand activities beyond the North Sea.
The new office in Aberdeen’s Albert Street is led by Well Engineering Manager Donald MacArthur. The firm anticipates creating new Aberdeen-based well engineering and support positions.
MacArthur said: “This office will correctly position our business to capitalise on opportunities in and around the area, as well as providing a springboard for continued growth with the direct access to clients and a talented skills pool.”
Oil & Gas UK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie added: “We welcome the decision by Fraser Well Management to set up a new office in Aberdeen. It does indeed help underline that the North Sea is very much open for business.”
