Well Services Group has confirmed in a statement the acquisition of leading and well-established UK energy industry service provider OSS Enviro WSG.
It said that on March 13 it acquired the “leading specialist in fixed and mobile optical gas imaging services.”
Optical Gas Imaging Cameras detect a wide range of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) for leak detection and quantification. It said: “this additional leak detection service line further strengthens WSG’s capability as an industry-leading leak detection and repair specialist.”
With reduction of fugitive emissions becoming a focus of the energy industry, it added that it is “pleased to be able to offer this additional service to assist our clients in their efforts to become carbon neutral”.
Rob Griffiths, OSS Enviro Managing Director, said: “Becoming part of the WSG Group not only opens new markets but also gives us access to the engineering excellence that WSG are known for. We will now be able to offer group customers a true service for leak detection and repair (LDAR).”
He added: “With new legislation and stricter controls due to be announced in 2020, we believe we now have the right partnership to lead the market into a safer, better Global Environment.”
WSG Enviro will give the customer real time leak information and actionable data and integrity history of all onsite components, thus ensuring and improving safe operations onsite and controlling environmental impacts.
Utilising existing and well established WSG Service Lines, the statement said: “WSG are perfectly placed to conduct repairs for the client during planned and unplanned outages.”
WSG Enviro will utilise WSG’s Asset Integrity Software (AIM) for the identification, quantification and record keeping of survey results, offering the client “an all-encompassing service”.
WSG Managing Director, Gareth Turner, added: “These services are a perfect addition to the existing WSG Service Portfolio and will contribute to our goal of becoming the number one specialist service provider to the UK’s energy sector. We look forward to supporting our clients with these additional environmental solutions and we are pleased to welcome the experienced team from OSS Enviro to WSG.”
OSS Enviro will now trade as WSG Enviro and be based out of the UK Group headquarters at Normanton. WSG Enviro will be the only company offering this technology to the oil, gas, utilities and storage sectors in the UK, Ireland and Benelux.
