Well Ops relocates to larger premisesCompany News // March 27, 2014
Aberdeen-based Helix Well Ops (Well Ops), part of Helix Energy Solutions Group, has moved to new premises.
Well Ops has moved to Alba Gate on Stoneywood Road in Dyce, Aberdeen. It has taken on a six-year lease of the 27,682ft2 building, which is double the space it previously occupied at Helix House, which it shared with sister company Canyon Offshore which remains there.
The move to larger premises represents a major investment for Well Ops and is a result of the growing workforce that it requires to meet the increasing demand for its well intervention and decommissioning services delivered from its three regional mono-hull vessels.
Well Ops currently employs 115 staff onshore and a further 350 offshore onboard its well intervention vessels Seawell, Well Enhancer and the chartered vessel Skandi Constructor which joined the fleet in 2013.
The addition of Skandi Constructor provides Well Opsí clients with a vessel equipped to work in both harsh environments and deepwater subsea well locations, such as West Africa and closer to home, waters West of Shetland.
Expanding its fleet and capabilities has led to an increase in business, with several contract wins both domestically and internationally through to the end of 2015.
