Q2 2012 – Entrepreneurial Investment Company Cements Success with New Jobs

An investment company set up to encourage the next generation of oil and gas entrepreneurs has created 30 new jobs across its group of companies.

Enerco Group Ltd, founded by Jamie Bennett, has invested in and is supporting two new companies: Operational Excellence (OPEX) Group Ltd and Mintra Training Portal Limited.

After building and selling a successful global business, Mr Bennett set up Enerco Group to meet a gap in the market by providing flexible finance and hands-on support and mentoring to emerging entrepreneurs in the oil and gas sector.

The businesses have between them created 30 new jobs, many of them senior appointments based at Enerco House in Aberdeen where they benefit from a supportive environment of shared services and facilities.

OPEX has recruited various engineering disciplines as well as strengthening its leadership team with several senior appointments. The company, which helps oil and gas companies eliminate production loss and unplanned breakdowns, has taken on the additional people to meet the growing demand for its services.

Mintra Training Portal, a joint Group between Norwegian firm Mintra A.S. and Enerco Group Ltd, is an established leading provider of competency solutions for the oil and gas industry with 300 oil and gas clients. The company has added a range of specialists to its workforce to service new contracts with major oil and gas operators and contractors.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Enerco Group, Mr Bennett, said: “It is really satisfying to see our group of companies growing and creating new jobs. Both OPEX and Mintra Training Portal offer something different to the industry and bringing in the right people is essential to driving our plans forward.

Enerco Group Ltd provides a unique mix of entrepreneurial excellence and investment finance to emerging companies in the oil and gas industry. It takes a lot more than just finance to realise success, Enerco Group offers a hands-on approach, from investment through to exit, adding value by injecting the right mix of entrepreneurial experience and specific expertise, along with a shared passion for doing things differently.”
