WellConnection Group, a leading Norwegian inspection, maintenance and repair company has acquired Peterhead-based Independent Oilfield Services in a deal which marks their entrance into the UK market. WellConnection Group with bases in Stavanger, Mongstad and Hammerfest in Norway have made a strategic investment in IOS, which since its inception in 2014 has quickly grown to become one of the market leaders in the UK within IMR services and storage. IOS changes name to WellConnection IOS and will provide the group with a strong foothold in the UK market to complement its Norwegian business and represent the first step in realization of its strategy to become a strong international player.

Chief Executive Officer of WellConnection Group, Rune Haddeland, welcomed the deal, saying: “This is excellent news for both WellConnection Group and IOS. IOS has a strong and diverse customer base, a complementary business model and a collaborative culture that mirrors our own. This acquisition allows us to share knowledge and benefit from integrated technology, systems and processes. The combination will benefit both Well Connection’s and IOS’s existing client base in both markets and even more so those clients with operations on both UKCS and NCS. It also enables the group to provide new service offerings to our combined existing client base and the wider UK market place with our Hydrocleaning and NORM (Naturally-Occurring Radioactive Materials) cleaning services.”
