It has been another hectic quarter for the Enseco Energy Services US Flowback Division. Because of our teams efforts Enseco was successfully awarded a large extension with one our major clients while securing new clients in 2013. This work along with potential upcoming work has allowed Enseco to meet a major goal of a more diverse customer and revenue base.
The past 12 months have brought a significant number of changes and improvements to the US flowback team as management strengthens the group with promotion and growth. Additions to the team range from an Administrative Assistant, to Flowback Superintendents, Night Supervisors, an EH&S Advisor, an Operational Manager and a Business Development Manager.
Enseco US Flowback has continued to challenge itself and the team with procedures, processes, culture and equipment. The implementation of a comprehensive competency program for our staff includes revised policies and procedures, a “hands on passport”; training verification forms; and competency exams that guide employees through the training process. This better equips Enseco with a standardized method to measure knowledge and progression while encouraging staff to gain the understanding necessary to advance their careers.
The focus on our culture this quarter is “what will you do today to ensure you make it home safely?” encouraging employees to focus on the task at hand. Working safely for the moment leads to working safely for a minute, hour, shift, quarter, year, etc.
Equipment improvements include a recent installation of a sparging system in one of our vessels as a solution to a client’s needs. The unit continues to be monitored for effectiveness and all reports show that the system is working as promised. We anticipate the installation of the system in up to six additional vessels in the near future.
All indications point towards an exciting and prosperous 2013. The management team would like to thank our staff for their patience, commitment and continued hard work and dedication.
Phil Hemmelgarn, Operational Manager
& John McAuley, Business Development Manager
