Maxoil Solutions celebrates business milestone

31 Oct 2014

This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary and prepare for the next chapter.

A continued commitment to maximising optimisation in the global oil and gas industry will be the key driving force behind the next phase in the growth of an Aberdeen-based consultancy as it marks its 10th anniversary by looking to the future.

Maxoil Solutions was founded in 2004 by Dr. Wally Georgie and Mel Dow to bring together experienced consultants with a focus on operational expertise.

Both remain at the heart of the business, which has expanded from its Aberdeen roots to incorporate a base in Houston and a strong presence in Perth and Stavanger and other key energy regions globally.

Senior Management Team members from across the world gathered in Aberdeen yesterday (October 30) for a two-day gathering designed to celebrate the 10-year milestone and prepare for the next chapter in the company’s story.

Maxoil offers a range of specialised Process and Production Chemistry consultancy services, enabling clients to achieve process performance optimisation by applying effective knowledge to new projects and operating assets.

Managing director Mel Dow said: “The business and our vision was built on the foundations of a holistic approach, blending our core disciplines of Process Engineering and Production Chemistry combined with hands-on operations experience gained, under the umbrella of a single consultancy to really make a difference to issues that hurt our Clients; whether they be uptime, performance, environmental or financial. That ethos remains vitally important to us.

“The approach has served us very well over the past decade and we have an incredibly strong team in place, active around the world and delivering tangible, value adding results to a growing client base. What we have never done is stand still and there is a desire throughout the Maxoil team to ensure the evolution continues over the next 10 years and beyond.

“We have invested to expand our pool of specialists and train the next generation of engineers/ chemists, both in the UK and the US, and are also committed to expanding our range of services. The industry has moved forward since 2004 and we are proud to have been integral to optimising assets performance through expertise and innovation. ”

Maxoil has specialist areas of expertise in operations assurance, flow assurance, fluids separation, produced water management, sand and solids management, gas treatment and transport, chemical treatments and contaminants, process troubleshooting, advanced diagnostics, de-bottlenecking and technical awareness training.

Founding director Wally Georgie said: “The Maxoil team has grown to include 40 specialists globally in a variety of disciplines, with extensive operational experience. We have demonstrated the benefits of bringing that knowledge together with a team approach and are looking forward to providing solutions to fresh challenges in the industry. Maxoil is, for example, extending the application of our expertise successfully to the North American and Australian unconventional operations”.
