I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the last 16 months and found them to be the best agency I have ever worked for.

Wellwise are very quick to respond with any query I may have whether it is invoicing, flight times, location, meet and greet etc etc etc!! I can pick up the phone anytime and get the answer I am looking for.

Wellwise is a part of my life - I have worked with Wellwise since day one and have seen the company grow, as I have grown with them.

Communication with operational management has become easy with access to them through the most professional, polite and cheery receptionists one possibly could hope to find on the other end of the phone.

Ian Kirkland
Well Test Supervisor

I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the best part of 14 years. I value the support that is always there; I value their friendship and I look forward to the future and what it will offer as Wellwise continues to expand.

Paul A. Goodwin
Well Test Supervisor

One of the main reasons I like working for Wellwise is the support you are given from the office. I receive a full job brief before travelling and they are always on the other end of the phone if you need anything day or night.

As a consultant to any company, its difficult to grasp the workloads, efforts or agendas of the company, but with Wellwise, one gets the impression of proactivity, not only as a competitor in the agency world but as a company striving for professional respect amongst its clients.

Unlike other agencies we do not post available jobs because of the fast turnover of our business. New jobs are available daily so register with us to ensure you are first to hear of the latest assignments and are ready to travel.

I have worked in Africa, Hungary, Poland, Israel, France, Holland, Aberdeen, and locally. These locations provided land work and offshore work, on HPHT gas & oil wells & H2S wells, for a variety of clients including Expro North Sea and Schlumberger.

Working in Iraq - Paul Goodwin

Jul 2, 2013, 11:54 AM
Wellwise Group Contractor Paul Goodwin volunteered to do a job in Iraq in 2009 when things were still very unstable

Paul joined Wellwise at the outset in 1986 – he had worked with David and Glenn offshore and onshore for many years previously.  He started his oilfield career with Flopetrol in 1970.

When recently asked if he would undertake a job in Iraq – he only had to think about it for a few seconds…………..although his wife had a few reservations!

Paul workied for a UK based oil company operating out of Kurdistan in North Iraq.

Paul lived and worked in port-a-cabin accommodation with temperatures of +47 degrees during the day, and +20 degrees at night.  Generally though the working conditions were good, and he says the people are “very, very friendly and helpful”.  There were five European expats on the rig, the rest were Chinese and Kurdish, totalling with the military around 150 personnel.  Telecommunications within and outside the country were excellent but there are no land lines at the rig site.

However it is not always hot, they do have four seasons with snow in the winter.

At the location the method of Well Testing is a whole new learning curve for many of the people he worked with.

Luckily the work wass based many miles north of the current troubles, and although the security around the camp was very, very high there was little feeling of threat.  After all, the local people, like all of us, are generally trying to live normal lives.

Paul tells me he would be more than happy to go back and do another job there.
