Market leader going boldly into emerging markets with ambitious growth plans


An international leader at the forefront of next generation creative solutions for the oil and gas completions market is ready to fulfil its ambitious US growth plans at warp speed.

Headquartered at Westhill, Aberdeen Vulcan Completion Products’ (VCP) has doubled the size of its team in recent months and now employs 20 people around the world who specialise in design, manufacture, and application of bespoke, innovative, and ground-breaking solutions.

Thanks to the team’s combined 200 years of experience and the support of a global network of carefully selected agents, the company sells directly to IOCs, major players and headline service companies. From centralisation, reamer and guide shoes to float equipment, cement plugs, collars and cable protectors VCP has an unmatched record of success, with the prime directive firmly focused on being a quality service provider which consistently exceeds client expectations.

With a recent investment allowing Vulcan Completion Products to fast-track its expansion plans, the market-leading company has focused on a “live long and prosper” strategy in The Americas, spurred on by a recent Houston office expansion and a key appointment who has been tasked with fostering existing client relations in the region and spearheading additional opportunities.

Regional Manager Marcus Gregson-Brown brings to the team nearly 25 years of experience in the field of primary cementing equipment, mostly in locations such as Azerbaijan, Sakhalin Island and for the last 15 years in Houston where he has gained considerable experience in supplying to North American Gulf of Mexico operations, plus land as well as South American projects.

The appointment of Marcus is seen as crucial in exploring new frontiers and rolling out Vulcan Completion Products’ complete range of solutions to the North and South American markets, with the Phazer™ Flex already taking the market by storm and providing a crucial driver for growth in the US as it has already done elsewhere.

Stars of the company’s suite of products, the industry hailed Phazer™ Flex and Phazer™: Flex TT (Tight Tolerance) are under-reamed centralisers which offer superior stand-off in the open hole, while offering ultra-low drag in the restricted cased hole. All Phazer™ Flex products are tested to API and beyond.

The latest growth announcement comes just a matter of months after the relocation of the six-year-old company’s Middle east office to a new, larger office space in Dubai. From here, the growing team is working hard to enhance VCP’s foothold within the Middle East region, which is also deemed to be of paramount strategic importance, both historically and in the company’s ambitious growth plans.

Ian Kirk of Vulcan Completion Products said: “Our working relationship with Marcus stretches back many years and we are delighted to have him on board to lead the charge in our growth plans for The Americas.

“The right products need the right people to deliver them to the absolute best of standards and his appointment continues our long-standing commitment to placing expertise close to our clients to ensure we can be nimble and exacting in meeting their evolving needs.

“By working hard to establish a solid network with global reach, we are now able to take a wealth of expertise into the US market where complex wells require products which can give massive cost savings – any other approach would be, as Mr Spock said, highly illogical!”
