Energy services company Senergy has reinforced its survey and geo-engineering team by almost 30% after further building on its fast-growing global footprint through the expanding geographical reach of its operations.
New contract wins across the UK, Norway and Australia have resulted in the growth of the company’s survey and geo-engineering division which has also seen its team of experts increase from 36 to 46 with plans to further grow this by more than 30% to 55 people by the end of 2014.
A new general manager has been appointed at Senergy’s Bath office in the UK while a senior geotechnical engineer has joined the company’s Perth office in Australia. In addition to this and with an increased presence at Senergy’s base in Stavanger, the company has also been awarded a Norwegian Framework Agreement which marks the first time that Senergy has been asked to supply geotechnical client representatives for Statoil’s Oil and Gas projects on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Senergy, which was ranked earlier this year as number 10 in a league table of the UK’s fastest growing international businesses, provides fully-integrated project and asset development services across the energy sector.
Its survey and geo-engineering capabilities, which serve both the oil and gas industry and renewable energy market, span: geophysics and geo-hazard assessment; geotechnical and foundation engineering studies; survey, positioning and inspection; data management and geographic information system (GIS) solutions; cable burial and trenching assessment; due diligence and expert witness; and environmental science.
Phil Edwards, head of survey and geo-engineering at Senergy, said: “The strong growth we are experiencing across our operations is indicative of the increasing market demand for our specialist, integrated services. As a result, the business expansion has led to a substantial increase in resources and capabilities for clients.
“We are also pleased to welcome Philip Staten as our general manager in our Bath office which, on top of our oil and gas capabilities, is focused on the growing renewables sector. Philip, who brings more than 30 years’ experience in the civil and geotechnical market, will further enhance the strength of our senior management team.”
Established in 2005, Senergy has a global talent pool of more than 700 people across a network of locations in the UK, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Australia, South East Asia and the Americas.
The company delivers fully integrated project and asset development services across the energy industry, and has rapidly emerged as a global leader in diversified energy services through organic growth and a series of acquisitions.
The company’s services encompass geosciences, reservoir engineering, geohazard assessment, marine site surveys, rig positioning, wells engineering and operations, production optimisation, reserve and asset evaluation, facilities engineering, project management, power engineering and alternative energy solutions. Senergy also develops and supports innovative software technologies including Interactive Petrophysics™ and Oilfield Data Manager™.
Senergy became a member of the Lloyd’s Register (LR) Group in September 2013, following an agreement for LR to take a significant investment in the company.
