I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the last 16 months and found them to be the best agency I have ever worked for.

Wellwise are very quick to respond with any query I may have whether it is invoicing, flight times, location, meet and greet etc etc etc!! I can pick up the phone anytime and get the answer I am looking for.

Gary Duthie

Wellwise is a part of my life - I have worked with Wellwise since day one and have seen the company grow, as I have grown with them.

Paul Goodwin
Well Test Supervisor

Communication with operational management has become easy with access to them through the most professional, polite and cheery receptionists one possibly could hope to find on the other end of the phone.

Ian Kirkland
Well Test Supervisor

I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the best part of 14 years. I value the support that is always there; I value their friendship and I look forward to the future and what it will offer as Wellwise continues to expand.

Paul A. Goodwin
Well Test Supervisor

One of the main reasons I like working for Wellwise is the support you are given from the office. I receive a full job brief before travelling and they are always on the other end of the phone if you need anything day or night.

Bernard Murphy
Slickline Supervisor

As a consultant to any company, its difficult to grasp the workloads, efforts or agendas of the company, but with Wellwise, one gets the impression of proactivity, not only as a competitor in the agency world but as a company striving for professional respect amongst its clients.

Well Test Supervisor

Unlike other agencies we do not post available jobs because of the fast turnover of our business. New jobs are available daily so register with us to ensure you are first to hear of the latest assignments and are ready to travel.

Glenn Durrant

I have worked in Africa, Hungary, Poland, Israel, France, Holland, Aberdeen, and locally. These locations provided land work and offshore work, on HPHT gas & oil wells & H2S wells, for a variety of clients including Expro North Sea and Schlumberger.

UK Passenger Measuring Restrictions

Mar 09, 2015

New size restrictions for Offshore Helicopter Travel (mobilising from the UK).

There has been a lot of media coverage recently outlining the new passenger sizing restrictions that will affect offshore travel from April 1st 2015 – But what do they mean for Wellwise Group contractors?

-         From 1st April 2015, the CAA will prohibit helicopter operators from carrying passengers on offshore flights, whose body size is incompatible with the nearest authorised underwater escape exit.

-         This basically means your body size MUST be recorded on your vantage so that when your offshore helicopter flight is booked the helicrew can match you to a suitable seat.

-         There are several ways to get measured – medics on most North Sea platforms have had training to measure and record your size. However if you are not offshore in the North Sea prior to April 1st, Wellwise advise you to get yourself measured at a suitable medical centre.

-         Contractors with a shoulder width of more than 22” (55.9cm) will be classed as Extra Broad (XBR) while those with a width less than this will be classed as ‘regular’.

-         From April 1st if your body size has not been recorded on your vantage then you will automatically be classed as XBR – and with only 30% of seats on most choppers being fit for XBR passengers you may find yourself unable to fly.
