Glacier’s specialist services division comprises Glacier’s existing onsite machining operations, and heat transfer equipment manufacturing and refurbishment companies, Ross Offshore and MSL – while offering non-destructive testing services through sister company, Professional Testing Services. 

Mr Kilmurry will lead the integration of these into one business, allowing Glacier to provide its customers with a bundled service offering, deploying multi-skilled technicians onsite to deliver cost savings and other efficiencies.

Glacier Energy Services’ specialist services division is targeting specific growth in the onshore upstream E&P and downstream infrastructure and facilities management sectors, building on its existing strong client base in the offshore upstream E&P and service market.

“Glacier has tremendous potential for further growth, with its multi-skilled specialists offering significant time and cost savings by delivering inter-related services at the same time, without compromise to safety or quality,” says Mr Kilmurry.

“These are critical considerations as the energy sector looks to secure its long-term future despite the challenges of a reduced oil price.

“The group has taken huge strides into the market, developing its core specialist service and bringing together recognised names in the delivery of vital services for energy infrastructure, including non-destructive testing to complement its industry-leading offering in onsite machining and heat exchanger capability.

“Its businesses are renowned for their ability to provide bespoke, engineered solutions to complex challenges, which have been field-proven throughout the UKCS for decades and further advanced since the group was formed in 2011.

“Glacier’s specialist services division delivers workscopes not only for operators and dutyholders in upstream E&P, also the downstream petrochemical and facilities management sectors – minimising production impacts and significantly reducing the cost of critical infrastructure works across the energy marketplace.”

Mr Kilmurry, who was most recently UK business improvement director for Petrofac Facilities Management, has more than 30 years’ experience in industry including major automotive manufacturing in the US, and global upstream oil and gas in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Scott Martin, chairman of Glacier Energy Services, said: “This is a significant appointment for the group as we work to expand our work with operators and oilfield service companies, delivering key services which will help secure the future productivity and profitability of vital assets on- and offshore.”

Glacier Energy Services has a staff of 230, and its group of companies also includes precision pipe-cutting equipment and onsite services provider Roberts Machining Solutions, and weld overlay solutions specialist Wellclad.

Glacier has significant business bases in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Fife and Newcastle, with international operations led from sites in Singapore and the Middle East.
