20 Recruits as Flexlife Firm Expands

04 April 2012

Flexlife, an oil and gas industry specialist in subsea project and integrity management, has recruited 20 people in the six months since it opened its Newcastle base.

And now the firm expects to double its team as the firm grows with the rising demand for its subsea project and integrity management services.

Andrew Lake, director of operations in Newcastle, said: "It has been an unbelievable six months with work being completed for major clients in key oil and gas regions around the globe and the business unit already making a profit.”

The team has undertaken a number of diverse projects including a flexlible pipe project in the Irish Sea, managing a pipeline investigation in South Africa and a range of asset/pipe integrity management projects in locations including the US, Norway, Angola and Ghana.

And chief operating officer John Marsden said: "The Newcastle base has been vital in supporting Flexlife’s global operation and will be a key element in the company’s continuing growth strategy.

"The team has given a great deal of assistance to the US base on an on-going project and is also working on the research and development of new products to complement Flexlife’s suite of asset integrity management technology.

"The office was set up in part to help expand our range of services to include front end engineering design (FEED).”
