Churchill Drilling Tools, an oil field service company specialising in downhole tools, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2017 Offshore Achievement Awards hosted by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
The company has been nominated in both the Export Achievement and Great Small Company categories.
A recognised innovator in down-hole dart activated tools, Churchill has seen considerable success with expansion in the Middle East, bringing in over £1 million of business and capturing 50% of the CircSub market between the beginning and end of 2016.
Demand for the product range continues to increase and the company recently opened new workshop facilities in Abu Dhabi – allowing Churchill to offer full lifecycle and service support in the region.
Mike Churchill, CEO and commercial director, said of the award nominations: “I am delighted that Churchill Drilling Tools has been nominated as a finalist for two Offshore Achievement Awards. Last year was a busy one for us and we have expanded considerably – both from an operational and commercial perspective. Our decision to expand in the Middle East has met with significant success and I am pleased that the efforts of the team over there can be recognised in this way.
“To be also shortlisted in the Great Small Company category is most welcome and it stands as a recognition of the time and investment we put into staff development and social engagement at the company.”
