Norwegian production solutions firm FourPhase has relocated its north-east Scotland operation to a new office in Westhill, near Aberdeen.
FourPhase, a portfolio company of EV Private Equity, currently has seven employees at the base and expects to hire more people this year.
The company has brought in a dozen new staff members in the last year, giving it a total headcount of 52 across its two locations in Bergen and Westhill.
It entered the UK market in 2015.
Chief executive Oyvind Heradstveit said: “Over the past year we have increased our international presence in the UK, Malaysia, Oman, Trinidad and we´re now about to enter USA, delivering significant sales growth and a positive bottom line performance.
“2019 is shaping up to be equally exciting. We look forward to introducing new digital tools for managing solids and understanding reservoir behaviour.
“With new facilities in both Bergen and Aberdeen, an efficient supply chain and a stronger team than ever, we will continue to deliver outstanding solids removal technology to the market.”
