The decommissioning company, set up in 2017, has moved to the HQ building at C4 Gateway Business Park, Cove, Aberdeen, UK, having already out-grown its current offices at Hill of Rubislaw.
Established to provide a Tier 1 well abandonment service, Well-Safe Solutions has acquired a semi-submersible drilling rig - the Well-Safe Guardian and been awarded a contract to decommission up to twenty-one wells on the Schooner and Ketch fields in the UK continental shelf (UKCS), operated by DNO North Sea (ROGB) Ltd.
Graeme Murray, Legal & Commercial Director at Well-Safe, commented: “This has been an exciting journey and we are now ready to take the next step towards growing the business. We are delighted to have found an ideal building that will give our employees a great working environment. It also will give us very quick access to our Dundee marine base, and with the new bypass, will make it much easier for all our employees to travel to and from the site.”
The facility has the capability to house more than 200 people over two floors, with Well-Safe initially taking over the top floor with the option to expand downstairs giving sufficient capacity to accommodate continued growth over the next five years.
Murray added: “This significant investment demonstrates the company’s desire to become a global leader in the well decommissioning space."
The company is gearing up for further contract awards and is in the final process of selecting a number of assets that it will purchase to enhance its complete well plug and abandonment package offering.
