ThinJack Delivers Help To Angolan School

Westhill-based specialist oil service firm ThinJack Ltd has announced that it has delivered stationery supplies to a school in Angola, thanks to the support of Deeside man Stuart Shaw.

For more than a year, ThinJack Ltd has been supporting a ground-breaking project to provide education to some of Angola’s poorest children at a school in the capital Luanda which has been established thanks to the efforts of local man, former teacher, translator and oil worker Kisuka Baltazar.  He is gradually funding the improvement of the current school using contributions from his own salary and a small number of donations from oil and gas companies working in Angola including ThinJack Ltd.

As well as providing cash and working to secure donations from other companies, ThinJack Ltd secured gifts of much-needed stationery for the school and, following a call for help earlier in the year, the company joined forces with Deeside-based freelance hydrographic surveyor Stuart Shaw to transport supplies.

Stuart explained: “I saw a newspaper article asking for help and I thought I could do something because my work takes me to Angola regularly.   After three trips I have delivered 18kg of stationery which must make a small but significant difference to the school.   I have a friend who also works in Angola so he will start to take packages on his next trip too.”

“Luanda is a place of phenomenal contrasts.  One minute you might see a brand new Bentley being driven through the horrendous traffic and a few minutes later see a young girl going to fetch water from the local stand pipe because her family lives without running water.  There is huge wealth in Angola but it is very ill-divided and I am sure the pens, pencils and paper that ThinJack provide is really appreciated at the school.”

ThinJack’s Guy Bromby added: “We are enormously grateful to Stuart for leading the way in this project to bring crucial supplies to the staff and pupils.  There is a huge amount to do but every single item we can get there is a significant step in the right direction.
“We hope that others will be moved by Stuart’s generous actions and inspired to join him in getting these items to where they can help make a real difference.” 

Anyone who can help should contact Guy Bromby at gcb@thinjack.info or call ThinJack Ltd on (01224) 330645 or visit www.thinjack.co.uk

ThinJack Ltd Pedals To Success

A team from Westhill-based specialist oil service firm ThinJack Ltd has just completed a gruelling cycle ride in aid of charity.

The group comprising Guy Bromby, Bob Ure, Robin Goodwin and Mika Mackenzie cycled from Inverness to Aberdeen as part of the two-day G.O.T. Ride the North challenge, raising money for the Monty’s Maggie’s Appeal to build a new cancer care centre in Aberdeen.

With the route covering some 164 miles, each ThinJack Ltd representative ascended a total of 10,614 feet and burned nearly 9,000 calories in their efforts to reach the Aberdeen finishing line.

“It was a tough challenge but as well as raising money for a great cause, Ride the North was a brilliant teambuilding exercise for ThinJack,” commented Guy Bromby.

“We spent a lot of time together on training rides but the event itself, whilst not a race, really brought out the best in people in an environment away from our usual one.  It really did prove that great things can be done with some commitment and determination – and in my case it was done on the back of a £50 bike!”

Congratulating ThinJack Ltd’s efforts, event organiser Neil Innes added: “The ThinJack team certainly wins the award for team spirit, with all four members finishing all together.  I am sure it was tough at times, but hope it was a worthwhile experience for all involved.”

Donations are continuing to pour in and anyone wishing to contribute to ThinJack Ltd’s fundraising efforts should visit https://www.justgiving.com/Mika-Mackenzie0

ThinJack is based at Westhill, Aberdeenshire and is well known for its revolutionary technology which successfully separates seized or corroded flanges where conventional methods of levers, wedges or pulling are unsafe, have failed or are taking too long whilst having to simultaneously remove rusty bolts.  ThinJack is a steel envelope which can be inflated with up to 2,500 bar of hydraulic pressure to exert hundreds of tonnes of force, making it the ideal separating and jacking solution in hazardous, difficult or restricted areas.  The bespoke ThinJack service is primarily used for safe, fast and rigless separation of seized well flanges.  ThinJack also offers a specialist consultancy service proactively identifying potential flange problems and providing solutions. ThinJack has been actively supported by Aberdeenshire Council, Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Development International with technical and management training and marketing skills and services.

ThinJack Makes Six Figure Investment to Meet Demand

Aberdeenshire-based ThinJack has just made an investment of nearly $500,000 in new equipment and inventory for its revolutionary ThinJack systems to meet rapidly growing demand for its specialist flange separation service.
         
ThinJack is a millimetric thin steel envelope which can be inflated with 2,500 bar of hydraulic pressure to exert hundreds of tonnes of force, making it the ideal separating and jacking solution in hazardous, difficult or restricted areas. The bespoke service is primarily used for the rigless separation of seized well flanges and it can also be used to remove concrete weight coat from pipelines.

The company is headed by Guy Bromby and Alastair MacDonald and is based at Arnhall Business Park, Westhill. ThinJack employs five people at Westhill with additional trained field technicians at its overseas bases at Melbourne in Australia, Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia, Houston in Texas and  Luling in Louisiana, USA.

The new inventory includes short sets of ThinJacks in generic sizes to meet the most common specifications of seized API6A flanges on offshore well and Christmas tree flanges.  Where a flange is seized and time does not allow for a ThinJack pre-workover engineering survey, the new off-the-shelf service will ensure that seized flanges can still be separated in a matter of hours.

The new service is available on a rental basis and products are charged only when used.  The most cost effective procurement process for ThinJack service remains a pre-workover engineering survey to determine and manufacture in advance ThinJacks of the optimum configuration for specific flanges and to dovetail with workover schedules.

The short set rental facility addresses the operator’s need to minimise risk and uncertain capex spend but still ensures fast access to the necessary ThinJack solution if it is needed.  The short set ThinJack service is also available from the company’s US Gulf of Mexico bases.

ThinJack director Alastair MacDonald said: “This is a major investment for a company of our size but we have received a tremendous response internationally to our unique cost-saving ThinJack service, and we are excited about the further growth that this investment will bring.

“The industry is always under pressure to increase productivity whether from enhanced oil recovery programmes or by workovers on the older producing wells and drilling through limited existing platform well slots, where flanges need removal and are often seized. ThinJack plays a significant role in reducing time and cost by the fast and safe separation of seized flanges compared with traditional methods.

Alastair added: “With this investment in new systems we can reduce the time delay caused by seized flanges even further, and assist operators’ in getting their wells producing much earlier.”

ThinJack Rallies Support For Angolan School

Specialist Aberdeenshire oil service firm ThinJack Ltd is calling on North east businesses and a local school to lend their support to an ambitious school building project in the Angolan capital, Luanda.

Anyone interested in lending their support is invited to attend ThinJack’s Westhill offices at 4.30pm on Monday, June 13th for a meeting which will give the chance to find out more and find a way of working together to help what promises to be a very rewarding project.

In 2010, Westhill-based ThinJack completed its first contract in Angola and whilst working in the country, director Guy Bromby became aware of a ground-breaking project to provide education to some of the nation’s poorest children on the outskirts of the capital city, Luanda.

Local man, former teacher, translator and oil worker Kisuka Baltazar (61) is gradually funding the improvement of the current school, with extremely modest facilities, using contributions from his own salary and a small number of donations from oil and gas companies working in Angola. Kisuka also has an ambition to build a larger school.

Currently, the school has a role of 850 registered pupils, looked after by 32 teachers and a small team of ancillary staff.  Kisuka hopes to create a new school complex including 36-40 classrooms with laboratories, a library and offices.  He hopes this will enable the school’s capacity to increase to over 1,000 pupils who will be able to choose morning, afternoon or evening sessions.

Kisuka explained: “I took over the running of this school in 2007 and have nurtured and supported it with my small salary. A donation of $10,000 (USD) from an oil company in Luanda bought aluminium doors and windows but there are still many things to do.

The school is entirely independent and the teachers are not paid by the government but by me setting very low fees of $10 USD per month paid by pupils during the school year.  This makes it difficult to pay the teachers well and in line with the huge cost of living in Luanda, whilst keeping fees low so that families can afford to send children to school.”

According to the government education policy, pupils from 15 years old have little opportunity to enrol themselves for school because they are considered too old.  In my school, however, I give these older children the opportunity to enrol and start studying at the beginning of the syllabus.”

He added: “Education can be the key to so many things and I hope that my school can play a part in giving children and young people the chance to help better themselves and the world around them.”

ThinJack’s Guy Bromby added: “Whilst in Angola, over several visits, Kisuka told me about a project he was heading up to improve educational facilities in Luanda.

At first we thought it was simply another charitable project, but when Kisuka actually detailed his plans we were amazed at his passion, dedication and commitment over many years against a backdrop of so little state support. We decided that ThinJack would help.

“Now we are hoping that other individuals and companies in the North East of Scotland will find their own way of doing something to help Kisuka’s amazing plan become reality.  We would also like to try and establish a link between a school here and the school in Angola to further enrich the educational experience in both countries.”

Guy continued: “Clearly, money is needed for the more ambitious task of building a new school. However right now, the school primarily needs stationery, furniture, computers, equipment for science laboratories and many other simple things which a school in the Aberdeen area would completely take for granted – and this equipment needs to get to Angola somehow.  Therefore, we are hoping that other individuals or organisations here in the North East of Scotland will be able to lend their time or support, be it financial, administrative, practical or logistical.

To find out more or lend support to the school project, call ThinJack on (01224) 330645.

ThinJack Launches Specialist Consultancy Service

Westhill-based ThinJack has extended its range of engineering services to include specialist consultancy for the oil and gas industry.

ThinJack is headed by Guy Bromby and Alastair MacDonald and is based at Arnhall Business Park, Westhill, Aberdeenshire, Scotland where the company has a base staff of five people for operations in the North Sea and Europe.  ThinJack services international projects from additional bases in Melbourne in Australia, Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia and Luling, Louisiana, in the US Gulf of Mexico, and has recently completed major service operations offshore Angola.
The new consultancy service provides expert field technicians to evaluate the difficulty of and best solutions for separating seized flanges and components, thereby proactively saving customers significant time and costs.

ThinJack’s field technicians are trained to examine the seized flanges and to accurately identify the measurements of the flanges and ThinJacks required to ensure a 100% success rate. 
Customers can contract for a full support service covering a physical survey of one or several of the many flanges on wellheads or Christmas trees, pre-estimating the forces required to separate them and, subsequently, performing at short notice the well flange separation.

Alastair MacDonald of ThinJack says: “Many operators are finding that, during scheduled maintenance programmes, as well as emergencies,  they are faced with flanges on wellheads, bonnets, pipes and heat exchangers that are so badly corroded that it takes many hours trying to get them apart relying on traditional methods which have inherent dangers to their workforce. This often results in significant costs of downtime and delayed  production.“

“In today’s need for economic efficiency, reliability and reduction of downtime, it is advantageous that flange separation tasks are achieved with minimum delay. Based on a prior detailed physical inspection, the ThinJack service includes comparison of the flanges to be separated with objective data from our international flange separation experiences and produces an estimated time to separate each flange with a calculated separation force which can be applied by the ThinJacks.

“The cost of unscheduled maintenance and repair, or delayed workover progress - particularly for producing wellhead equipment – is expensive so it is cost-effective that any workover plans which include flange separation are assessed as accurately as possible before being implemented.“

He continues: “Calling in the ThinJack team at an early stage of the workover planning process will significantly reduce risk, time and cost as ThinJack operations are typically accomplished in just 25% of the average time of traditional methods, with a 75% reduction in delayed production revenues. This is together with an infinite improvement in safety and reduced likelihood of damage to key well and drilling equipment“.

“We have distilled years of knowledge and experience gained worldwide from delivering ThinJack solutions to flange separation challenges into our consulting service.
“The new service proactively advises clients in advance of those flanges which may cause them costly flange separation problems during servicing and workovers, and recommends fast and cost-effective solutions to the problems.

“Contracting in this service in advance of conducting maintenance workover plans, has already resulted in significant cost and time savings for a growing list of major international operators.“

ThinJack has been identified by Business Gateway as growth pipeline status which involves meeting a variety of rigorous criteria including aiming to increase turnover by £400,000 in three years.

Commenting on the move to Westhill, Guy Bromby said: “Our main regions of business are the North Sea, Australia and the Gulf of Mexico and 88% of our business is done in overseas markets. 
“We even found ourselves simultaneously working on three jobs on three different continents earlier this year and that was another first for us!”

Guy added: “At the moment, we have lots of resource going to Norway and that is very much an emerging market for us. The new premises at Arnhall Business Park will enable us to better serve our growing client based across the globe.”

Hot on the heels of exhibiting at the Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition last month, ThinJack will be present at the SPE ICoTA 15th European Well Intervention Round Table at Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre on November 18th and 19th.  The company will also exhibit at OTC and the Australasian oil and gas show in 2010.
