ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND, UNITED KINGDOM
As the primary research and development (R&D) and manufacturing center for our cesium formate brines, we are committed to providing excellent customer service while maintaining the highest safety, health and environmental (SH&E) standards.
We are the leading producer of cesium formate brines, a unique solids free, high density fluid used in drilling and completion, as well as fine cesium chemicals that are used in a variety of applications, including oil, gas and mining. Located in Aberdeen, the hub of the North Sea oil and gas industry, we are closer and more connected to industry professionals, allowing us to provide our customers with the highest level of service and expertise.
Our site opened in 1998 and has since served as the administrative and technical center for our Specialty Fluids business. Approximately 27 employees perform a range of functions, including SH&E, R&D, human resources, operations and finance.
Safety is always our top priority. As part of our continuous improvement program, we conducted a site-wide SH&E assessment and are working to reach our ultimate goal: a safe, experienced and generative workforce.
We have implemented stringent SH&E procedures to allow us to better manage the health and safety of our employees, visitors and contractors, as well as help protect our local environment.
Helping local students
We believe that today’s students are our future talent. Every year we cooperate with The University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University to advance the experience of local students. For the past six years, we have invited Master of Science students to work side-by-side with scientists in our laboratories, and this year we have initiated a new project that will enroll several new masters and honor students.
Supporting a local hospital
In 2015, we donated over £1,000 to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to support their efforts to raise funds for a new satellite renal dialysis unit. We held weekly lunches and employees took turns donating homemade treats.
Our Developing Leaders program helps our first line leaders advance their leadership experience and broaden their management skills.
In the spirit of the 2016 Olympic Games, we created our own Office Olympic championship. Using our office’s videoconferencing technology, we competed each day with our colleagues in Norway.
We competed in a variety of disciplines, including knowledge of the Olympics, a throwing triathlon and many others.
