Old Message from Chairman

Hello and a personal welcome to the OES website from the Executive Chairman, Richard Upshall.

OES is an Asset Integrity Management company and by virtue of its services, keeps oilfield installations and oil logistic chains secure.  Providing offshore and onshore inspection, maintenance and audit and commissioning services to rig contractors and operators globally.

OES has been at the forefront of inspection technology developments in the oil & gas sector for more than 20 years and continues with the development of the latest generation of ARCUS. The platform provides a suite of specialist services that span the life cycle of a range of assets and facilities, from the planning and construction stage, reactivation and through all phases of operation and maintenance, right until decommissioning.

Maintaining asset integrity at every stage of a facilities development and operation is vital to ensuring productive and cost-controlled operations.  This is essential in this new-normal of mid-$50-per-barrel oil prices and demonstrates how technology-led supply chain companies like OES are key to helping asset operators achieve this objective.

We demand of our inspectors the highest standards, we wish to provide you with the most secure of services through outstanding inspections and preventative maintenance. If we fall short, I want to know about it. In the meantime we look forward to us delivering outstanding services to you.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Upshall
