Well-Safe Solutions is today delighted to announce the appointment of a key position within the Executive Team.
Matt Jenkins is to become Chief Operating Officer of Aberdeen-based Well-Safe Solutions with immediate effect, having been promoted from his previous role as Director of Well Abandonment.

Matt said of his promotion: “I’m very proud to have been asked to step up into this incredibly important role within the organisation and I am excited at the opportunities this will bring me on a personal and professional level.
“The last year has been tremendously exciting with incredible support from industry We have gathered a fabulous team that is destined for great success.”

The company now has more than 35 personnel working for a string of clients and aims to employ more than 400 people within the next three years.
Well-Safe offers a fully-integrated ‘Tier 1’ well abandonment service, providing the complete P&A project delivery from strategy definition and development through to the execution of operations utilising the firm’s own bespoke marine and land-based assets.
Well-Safe has launched five P&A clubs that have sparked considerable interest in the business and is in final negotiations on acquiring key assets.
The team pledges to retain and share lessons learned and operate in collaboration with clients to achieve significant cost reductions. The capital released can then be utilised by operators to invest further in the North Sea basin and help execute Maximise Economic Recovery (MER), a key plank of the Oil & Gas Authority’s strategy.
