International oil and gas services group, EnerMech, has strengthened its operations in Australia with the appointment of two senior oil and gas industry professionals.

Craig Wilson and Phil Ellwood will join the EnerMech team as it pushes forward with plans to establish itself as Asia Pacific’s leading oil and gas mechanical services supplier.

EnerMech is an $AUD 500 million turnover business which employs 2000 staff in 31 locations serving the international energy sector. Its seven business lines include Cranes and Lifting, Valves, Hydraulic products and services, Industrial Services, Process, Pipeline and Umbilicals (PPU), Equipment Rental and Training services.

In Australia EnerMech has secured contracts worth an estimated value of $AUD 80 million over the next year and forecasts its headcount will increase from 350 to over 500 in the next 24 months. The company has facilities in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Darwin, Sale, Gladstone and Chinchilla.

Ellwood, who has in excess of 30 years industry knowledge, has been brought in as Operations Manager to oversee the expansion and consolidation of EnerMech’s on-the-ground operations at its eight Australian bases.

Wilson, who has over 20 years of grassroots experience within the oil and gas industry, has been appointed as Senior Business Development Manager. He will be responsible for driving performance and ensuring the delivery of EnerMech’s service across Australia and its neighbouring regions.

Both Wilson and Ellwood, who are based in Perth, were previously employed by APTS where they were integral to securing and servicing some of Australia's largest LNG projects in recent years.

EnerMech General Manager for Australia, Niall Conlon, said: “We have secured strategically important contracts with major energy companies who value the efficiencies we bring to their business.

“Significant investment in infrastructure and equipment to service those projects is being backed up by the recruitment of top level industry professionals and with Craig Wilson and Phil Ellwood on our team we can take EnerMech to the next level as a premium services provider to the Australian energy and construction industries.”
