Subsea intervention specialist firm Enpro Subsea has been named Great Small Company 2017 at the 31st SPE Aberdeen Offshore Achievement Awards (OAA) black-tie event held last night (Thursday 23rd March) at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre.

The production optimisation company which has 25 personnel and was founded in 2011, was presented with the top award for its excellent performance in the offshore energy sector, and in particular, for its steady and consistent growth during one of the most challenging economic climates in decades for oil and gas businesses.

Enpro Subsea was established in 2011 with its founding members having worked together for more than two decades through various business entities. Ian Donald, John Reid, Steve Robb and Tom Bryce have been instrumental in bringing several game-changing technologies to the subsea industry, including the ESSI Decommissioning system and the pioneering FAM (Flow Access Module) technology which is becoming a new industry standard for flexible subsea enhanced production intervention.

The OAA win follows a remarkable 12 months for the Aberdeen-based company which saw its patented ESSI Decom system being successfully deployed by a major North Sea operator. This has enabled them to drill into existing gravity based structures and sample trapped fluids prior to decommissioning in accordance with OSPAR compliance regulations.

At the same time, Enpro also saw its ESSI FAM production enhancement systems exported to West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico, and announced news of a £755,000 research and development grant from Scottish Enterprise to help the company further design, develop and test new technology.
The company’s managing director, Ian Donald, was also honoured earlier this year, winning the outstanding achievement award at the Subsea UK Awards.

Enpro Subsea marketing director, Tom Bryce, said: "The OAA’s have been celebrating and encouraging innovation and collaboration in the North Sea for over three decades. We are very proud to be recognised by the SPE in the Great Small Company category ahead of the other shortlisted businesses which we respect immensely.

"This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of our of team, who exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit encouraged and nurtured throughout the company allowing us to meet the ever-changing needs of the subsea industry.

"It’s because of this that we have experienced strong business expansion across key markets and have a robust strategy in place for continued growth.”
