Blackpool Company wins national Oil and Gas contract

WJF Technical Support, based on the Sycamore Trading Estate in Blackpool, is a well-known provider of engineering personnel who specialise in the Automotive; Aerospace and Defence and Oil & Gas industries.

The company is delighted to confirm today that it has signed a major national Oil & Gas contract for the supply of Well Services personnel to its international client, the IKM Group.

The service which WJF Technical Support provides will initially focus on supplying trained personnel through IKM’s Aberdeen office, but eventually the scope of the contract would probably expand globally.

The IKM Group is a multi-discipline sub-supplier to the global Oil and Gas industry, with bases in 13 countries. Its headquarters are in Oslo, Norway, and the Group has 2,450 employees. The company focuses on well services in addition to its existing pipeline and process business.

Commenting on this new contract award, Tim Freshney, WJF Technical Support’s Managing Director, said: “This is a significant contract for us and everyone here is thrilled to be working with such a reputable company as the IKM Group. We will initially be working on a number of upcoming projects with the Aberdeen office, and are looking forward to further developing this partnership as we progress through 2017 and beyond.

“We already have a number of job opportunities available, so if anyone has the right skill set and experience in Oil & Gas, and is looking to develop an engineering career in the Oil and Gas industry, we would be delighted to hear from them. Please send your CV to oilandgas@wjftechnicalsupport.co.uk.”
