Yesterday, January 18th, Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate, Lars Christian Lilleholt, visited the Welltec® production facilities in Esbjerg and met with our founder and CEO, Jørgen Hallundbæk. Among other themes related to the oil and gas sector, the primary subject was the export of energy technology and the growth that the oil and gas industry, including Welltec®, can bring to society.
Director, Global Technical Sales Support
Welltec® employs a broad, diverse range of people around the globe, from highly educated experts to those performing general labor. But a common element throughout is supporting the development and manufacturing of energy technology for the oil and gas industry.
As such, the potential of growth and development leading to new jobs was discussed as well as the positive spill-over effects to other industries.
For example, it was highlighted how the high level of HSEQ (Health, Safety, Environment, Quality) being an integral part of the oil and gas sector, has influence to other industries such as the wind.
During the visit, Welltec® representatives emphasized that field trials of new technologies are pivotal to effectively launch new solutions for a global export market.
“Conditions that support such field trials in the Danish portions of the North Sea can help maintain and increase the level of export activity,” said Jørgen Hallundbæk.
