Our Consultancy division had to find and recruit a full exploration drilling team for an operator. The project was in the Middle East and personnel had to have experience with land-based projects.
The strategy of our team
was first to headhunt the right calibre of candidates specifically with expertise in working in the region.
Our database of technical manpower professionals includes more than 9,000 candidates in Well Engineering and its related disciplines. We also subscribe to a number of industry-specific recruitment databases. These were rigorously searched
to supplement the long list generated by our comprehensive headhunting activity.
As a result, a complete drilling-project team was recruited. The in-country team consisted of Drilling Superintendents, Senior and Night Drilling Supervisors, Materials and Logistics Coordinators, Well Test Supervisors and HSE Advisors. All personnel sourced came from various countries around the world and the candidates were selected for their skill sets and experience.
The final drilling depth of 4,190m was reached and five well stems were tested.
Several members of the team secured further work through AGR Consultancy thanks to the success of this project. The new project was with another operator in the region.
