Prodrill Moves to Larger Premises

Aberdeen-based Prodrill Energy Resource Solutions announced Friday a move to larger premises, facilitating continued growth and cementing its position as one of the region’s leading oilfield consultancies, despite the current climate.

While many recruitment agencies are shifting focus due to a drop in oil price, Prodrill is bucking the industry trend and relocating two floors down from its current offices at 1-3 Albyn Terrace.

Prodrill’s team will now occupy the 3300 square feet high caliber office space – which is 600 square feet larger than the company’s previous office suite – from Friday. Demonstrating that investment is still a key driver for the organization, Prodrill has opted for a £1million, ten-year lease.

Louise Wood, Prodrill’s managing director, explains: “While there is a widely-reported uncertainty in the energy market, we feel that it is necessary for us, as a business, to look to the future and plan for the longer-term.

“When we moved into our West End office in July 2010, the price of Brent Crude was not too dissimilar to where it sits today. The years following saw the industry on a high, with extraction hitting record levels and prices soaring to over $125 a barrel.

“Whilst we must proceed with a certain degree of caution, I find myself in agreement with BP’s recent Energy Outlook 2035 report - where continuous change is the norm in this industry, having experienced both the highs and lows over the past 25 years in the oil and gas recruitment sector. It is because of these changes that we have to sit up and work in an informed and smart manner in order to adapt, build upon what we have and set a clear direction for the future.

“As a result of this, we have maintained a continued investment in our personnel training, as well as making the decision to launch a graduate training program – which aims to develop Prodrill’s next generation of workers over the next three years.
