Oil and gas engineering consultancy Magma Products announced Friday that it is looking to recruit more engineers after winning North Sea projects with a potential value of approximately $23 million.
The Aberdeen, Scotland-based firm said that it now has the capacity to boost its team of 24 employees to 60 people – including adding 20 engineers to support a number of projects.
Magma specializes in such projects as commissioning and start-up, where first oil or gas is produced, and post-shutdown work, in which checks, inspections, certification and tests are carried out on components And systems before handover to the operator.
Paul Rushton, Magma's managing director, pointed out that the firm's success is driven by the fact that for many exploration and production companies it is not economical to have their own specialist teams for these niche areas of engineering.
"We have the expertise, capability and track record of delivering such projects and we're delighted this has been recognized by major companies operating in the North Sea," he said.
