Company History

In 1999 a group of offshore workers identified the need for a company that would look after their needs as consultants whilst finding them the best positions in the industry.  The group formed Online Consultants with the website OC99 to deliver this service.

The company grew through the strength of its reputation in delivering quality and competent well testing personnel to clients around the world.  In 2001 the company changed its name to Oil Consultants Ltd and expanded the range of disciplines offered to include skills such as drilling and coiled tubing.

Over the next 9 years the company continued to grow steadily and achieved the prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise: International Trade, in 2010.  Relationships were also established with agents in key geographical areas to provide a more comprehensive global service.

In early 2011, the current board of directors identified the opportunity to invest in the company and significantly increase the services offered to both clients and consultants.  Their first step was to recruit increased numbers of highly skilled consultants across a broader range of disciplines.  Next they developed an international sales and support team to service the clients on a local level.  The result has been a tripling of both turnover and staff numbers in the past three years leading to the successful global company that Oil Consultants is today.
