Oil Consultants is a specialist agency providing individuals and teams of highly skilled technical personnel to the oil and gas industry.
Based in Washington, UK, with a further ten global offices including bases in Brisbane, Houston, Malaysia, and the United Arab Emirates, the company provides consultants from a wide range of nationalities to clients in over 90 global locations. Due to the nature of the industry, personnel requests are often for highly specialist technical personal and often at short notice, so Oil Consultants has developed a company structure alongside processes to enable rapid response to clients’ requirements.
Helen Smith, CEO, said “We are absolutely thrilled to have been given this award – it is a huge credit to all our staff who work so hard to support our clients and consultants. To have received the award for a third time is an outstanding achievement and one which we are extremely proud of.” Oil Consultants were previously awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2010 and 2013.
“Our success is due largely to the levels of customer care we offer along with the very specialist knowledge and service we have developed for the international oil and gas industry. Our understanding of our client’s business has enabled us to develop a rapid response, yet extremely high quality service, where we can place consultants globally at very short notice. Our 24/7 service means that clients can contact us whenever they need us, which is extremely important as we work in multiple time zones all around the world for clients working both on and offshore.
The company now has in excess of 30,000 registered consultants and is continuing to implement its international development plans. Helen concluded, “In most instances we require our consultants to have at least four years’ experience in their discipline, so to have so many registered with us is a reflection of the level of service we provide to our consultants as well as our clients.”
