The global company has recently opened a second office in Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The new Erbil operation will act as a business hub for activity across the wider region, which means ground support to its contractors and key clients, according to NES Global Talent.

Vikram Nanda, operations manager of NES Global Talent in Iraq, said, “Kurdistan Region of Iraq is one of the hottest spots globally for the oil and gas industry.

“In northern Iraq and Kurdistan Region of Iraq we are seeing a great deal of growth in operation and drilling services, with in-demand disciplines including sub-surface, project services and operations and maintenance while in southern Iraq, existing oilfields such as Rumaila are also going from strength to strength and creating more and more job opportunities.”

The Erbil office is currently being managed by Glyn Evans, recruitment manager. The company said that it has plans hire more people in Iraq and Dubai in the coming year.

NES Global Talent also said that it recently moved its Abu Dhabi operation into a larger premises in order to support increased business activity and growing team. In 2013, NES Global Talent had obtained a new trade licence, allowing it to partner with the state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

Neil Mellin, operations manager at NES Global Talent in Dubai, said, “Abu Dhabi is the oil and gas capital of the UAE and having signed the ADNOC manpower contract, we are now in a position to work on all mega projects in the emirate. Over the next six years, Abu Dhabi is looking to double its oil production to over one million bpd with projects such as Upper Zakum, SARB, Umm al-Lulu and NASR as well as looking at projects to increase the supply of gas in Abu Dhabi.

“It’s an exciting time to be working in oil and gas in Abu Dhabi and we are looking forward to making the most of all of the new opportunities in the pipeline.”
