Consultant Reservoir Engineer

“It has been a pleasure working as a reservoir engineer for a major gas company in Abu Dhabi through Subsurface Global. Peter Bottomley in Edinburgh and his staff in the Abu Dhabi office have efficiently and expertly managed all aspects of my contract: UAE administration requirements, travel arrangements, hotel accommodation and salary payments. My relationship with Subsurface Global has been trouble free and I can recommend them as a partner to consultants in the oil and gas industry.”
