WHILST most people have packed away the Christmas decorations for another year, Aberdeenshire-based oil services firm ThinJack is looking for help in finding a Christmas tree.
But rather than bringing a touch of greenery to the company’s Westhill office, the company is hoping to source the piece of oil and gas industry equipment bearing the same name which will form the centrepiece of a forthcoming open day.
ThinJack is hoping to open the doors of its headquarters to allow visitors the chance to see its unique specialist equipment in action and is hoping that a fellow local business will be able to loan the equipment for the event.
ThinJack specialises in the rigless separation of seized or stuck well flanges. Theservice uses patented millimetric-thin steel envelopes which are inflated with up to 2,500 bar of hydraulic pressure to exert hundreds of tonnes of force. ThinJack deploys specialist equipment and highly trained technicians anywhere in the world at short notice to separate wellhead flanges which are seized and causing costly delays during well workovers. Theunique ThinJack service is a safe and fast solution for separating and jacking in hazardous, difficult or restricted areas.
ThinJack directorGuy Brombysaid: “Crucial to the success of the open day will be the presence of a Christmas tree to enable us to show visitors exactly how our equipment operates. Many are being sent for disposal at the moment and I hope that someone has the time to hold one back for a couple of weeks and lend it to us.
“We hope that this will be seen as a great opportunity for another company to work in partnership to showcase the technology available in this part of the world.”
