Following years of dedication to excellent customer service and innovation, Blackburn Starling has gained an enviable reputation across the globe in a variety of industry sectors. Already well established within the oil and gas market, this sector has been the company’s primary growth area during the past 15 years.
Blackburn Starling has experienced an increase in offshore refurbishment contracts in recent years and believes this is due to the growing need to extend the life of already standing oil platforms in/close to reservoirs that still contain significant amounts of oil. These platforms are needed for the production of oil in previously thought to be depleted areas, which has resulted in inspections and repairs which could potentially extend the life cycle of the platform for a further 20 – 30 years.
Presently working in the oil and gas market with major companies such as Amec, Wood Group Engineering, Shell UK, BP, CNR International, GDF Suez and many others, Blackburn Starling has a multi million pound portfolio of offshore projects. The company undertakes projects as small as offshore site surveys to major multi million pound overseas installations and has a team of experienced installation and commissioning engineers who are MIST, FOET & BOSIET accredited and available for mobilisation when required by the customer.
Blackburn Starling believes that the increasing demand for its services is related to the life extensions of the oil platforms and the company’s flexibility and ability to manufacture tailor made LV panels to the latest standards. Being able to assure the customer of guaranteed required delivery dates allows them to plan operation shutdowns with minimum downtime confidently. All products are fully compliant with the associated specifications that are required throughout the oil and gas sector and an ongoing testing policy keeps the company at the forefront of its field.
Blackburn Starling is looking to build on the successful foundations already achieved and increase its profile in the oil & gas market to ensure future growth and success. The company believes it has the potential for a significant amount of growth in this area, which can be achieved without compromising the high level of customer focus.
