Maxoil Solutions expertise in the spotlight

The expertise of a global oil and gas consultancy is set to be shared with a US audience as some of the energy industry’s vital challenges are tackled at a high profile event.

One of the founding directors of Maxoil Solutions has been confirmed as the co-chair of a key Society of Petroleum Engineers technical session during a period in which the company’s experience in maximising efficiency is in high demand.

Dr Wally Georgie, who founded the firm in Aberdeen in 2004 with Mel Dow, has been one of the driving forces behind the gathering in Galveston, Texas, from October 28-30.

It follows another key SPE event that Maxoil participated in, with the firm attending the Produced Water Handling and Management Symposium in Galveston in May. During the conference Chris Dilley, Senior Production Chemist, presented on the topic of ‘creating an effective oil in water sampling and monitoring system’.

The session included an examination of best practice and the necessity of calibrating field equipment. The importance of sampling techniques was also examined in the presentation prepared in conjunction with Maxoil’s senior production chemist Juan Carlos Picott.
