Case Study - Kurdistan
Urgent Mobilisations, Drilling
A multinational energy corporation had an urgent mid-operation requirement to mobilise two experienced drilling engineers to site during the completion of their well in Erbil
There was an extremely tight deadline in which to onboard the contractors.
Having sourced the contractors themselves, the client did not have the available resources to provide work permits in such a short timeframe. Therefore, they drew upon NES Fircroft’s reputable expertise to mobilise the required personnel to the project within just two weeks.
Our experience in this area meant that we were the client’s first choice out of all their MSA suppliers.
Our local teams have been operational in Iraq for over a decade, keeping up-to-date with all in-country legislation, meaning that we were able to provide the work permits in a quick, efficient and compliant manner.
- Our contractor support is second to none and we appreciate that travel to an unfamiliar terrain, particularly at short notice, can be a daunting experience.
Prior to mobilising the contractors, we ensured that they were well informed in regards to their part in obtaining their residency cards, sending them step by step, clear instructions.
- We also prepared them for what to expect upon arriving in-country through detailing their on-ground logistics, accommodation and security arrangements, and their meet and greet schedules.
The support provided included the provision of a dedicated NES in-country point of contact, available 24/7, should the contractors have any queries or logistical problems once in transit.
The results of our support
As a result of our widely recognised practises already in place, we completed the hiring and on-boarding process a week early. This particularly impressed the client and resulted in NES becoming their preferred supplier for the hiring of expatriates into Kurdistan.
Through our dedicated regional payroll and finance function, we also orchestrated prompt and accurate payroll for each individual.
