Off­shore suc­cess for tool com­pany

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - BUSINESS - BY KEITH FIND­LAY

En­ergy ser­vice firm Re­ac­tive Down­hole Tools, of Aberdeen, an­nounced yes­ter­day it had re­cently com­pleted six North Sea projects worth a to­tal of more than £500,000.

The com­pany, which spe­cialises in com­ple­tion sys­tems for the global oil and gas in­dus­try, said the work was for “mul­ti­ple op­er­a­tors” in both UK and Nor­we­gian waters.

Re­ac­tive added one of the projects was suc­cess­fully achieved in “in­cred­i­bly tight dead­lines”, while an­other was an in­dus­try first for its “swellable” tech­nol­ogy.

The com­pany also re­vealed it had signed two new long-term agency agree­ments in Bahrain and Pak­istan and in­vested an ad­di­tional £190,000 into its fa­cil­ity in Hous­ton in the US.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Mike Allen added: “We’re proud to have suc­cess­fully com­pleted six North Sea in­stal­la­tions this quar­ter util­is­ing our Re­flex HP prod­uct line. Two of these in­stal­la­tions were par­tic­u­larly chal­leng­ing.

“We look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing this mo­men­tum glob­ally as the in­dus­try con­tin­ues to pick up.

“The fact that we have in-house man­u­fac­tur­ing in both our Aberdeen and Hous­ton fa­cil­i­ties gives us the abil­ity to quickly turn­around tai­lored and be­spoke so­lu­tions for our cus­tomers.”

Founded in April 2012, Re­ac­tive cur­rently em­ploys 25 peo­ple across op­er­a­tions in Aberdeen, Hous­ton, Abu Dhabi, and Nor­way.

Last year, the firm helped a ma­jor oil and gas op­er­a­tor achieve a ma­jor dis­tinc­tion. At more than 62,300ft, the piece of kit at the heart of the £250,000-plus project in Abu Dhabi was a record-breaker.
