Rapidly-evolving energy services company Senergy has expanded its operations into Dubai and has increased office capacity in Aberdeen to support growing demand for its specialist integrated expertise and further consolidate its global network of operations.
The company’s move into Dubai builds on its well-established presence in the Middle East where Senergy opened an office more than five years ago and where CEO James McCallum is based. The company has already recruited 30 new employees in Dubai and anticipates creating a further 20 employment opportunities over the next six months.
In Aberdeen, staff from some of the company’s smaller offices in the city have relocated to new premises in Queen’s Terrace. Senergy’s Aberdeen-based team will now operate from the new facility and from the existing Bon Accord Crescent offices, providing increased overall capacity. Senergy has closed its operations at Bon Accord Square.
Mr McCallum said: “Senergy has maintained its ambitious commitment to growth this year by expanding facilities and collaborations across the world – from joint-venture research projects with universities in Malaysia and the US, to opening a new Middle East facility in Dubai, while at the same time, bolstering our base with a new office in Aberdeen.
“By expanding into Dubai, we are consolidating our position in the Middle East and enhancing our ability to deliver our specialist integrated services and technical expertise to customers around the world.”
Senergy’s Dubai office is on the 14th floor of the Arenco Tower, overlooking the Palm Jumeirah as well as the Emirates Golf Club, which hosts the annual European PGA Tour Dubai Desert Classic.
In Aberdeen, more than 100 members of Senergy’s team have now moved into the Queen’s Terrace facility.
Les Coats, Senergy’s general manager Europe, said: “Our rapid and ongoing expansion in Aberdeen, both in terms of business and employees, has been achieved through a combination of organic growth and increasing market demand for our services. Our new facility on Queen’s Terrace allows us to bring related service lines together in one office, whilst also providing us with significant capacity for further growth.”
Established in 2005, Senergy was ranked in the 2011 Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 of Britain’s fastest-growing privately owned companies after sales grew by 55% a year from £23.9million in 2007 to £89.7million in 2010. During the same period, Senergy acquired five businesses and opened nine offices. It employs more than 550 people worldwide across its Aberdeen headquarters and through a network of global offices in the UK, Norway, 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.
Senergy’s services encompass alternative energy solutions, geosciences, reservoir engineering, geohazard assessment, marine site surveys, rig positioning, wells engineering and operations, production optimisation, reserve and asset evaluation, facilities engineering and project management. Senergy also develops and supports innovative software technologies including Interactive Petrophysics and Oilfield Data Manager.
