Wireline Engineering Invests in South East Asia Expansion

Aberdeen-based wireline and well intervention technology specialist Wireline Engineering has further expanded its operations in South East Asia, initially investing over £150,000 in a new service base in Kuala Lumpur, and significantly increasing its personnel in the region.

The new 1600 square foot storage and maintenance facility will be managed by Jimmy Chong, who has joined the local team as Service Manager in Kuala Lumpur. Jimmy has a wealth of experience in well intervention equipment and services, as well as wireline field operations.

Wireline Engineering Chairman Bill Petrie said: “South East Asia is seen as a key development opportunity for the company and we are currently enjoying significant regional growth. The ongoing investment in new premises and personnel will greatly improve the support we are able to offer our customers as our activities expand.

“Having our own facility will also allow us to introduce and support new technologies that we have previously been unable to offer in Malaysia. That is good for us and good for our customers across the region.

“We have also been increasing our technical sales team based in Malaysia. We currently have five staff located in KL and, for the first time, we also have a sales manager based in Miri to provide closer support to our customers in East Malaysia.”

Wireline Engineering has plans to increase its staff by three over the next year and is currently preparing to move into larger office premises in KL to facilitate this growth.

Wireline Engineering develops original well intervention and completion technologies for the oil and gas industry worldwide.

The company was established in 1998 and its headquarters are located in Aberdeen, Scotland. It has international offices in the Americas, Middle East and Far East and employs 40 people worldwide.
