Alchemy Oilfield Services Ltd is a family run business founded in 2005. We are located in a purpose built facility at Thainstone Business Park on the outskirts of Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. The company primarily specialises in Gels and Sealing Materials for offshore and onshore oil industry applications.

Our main products consist of Aqueous Gel Pipeline Pigs, Glycol Gel Pipeline Pigs, crosslinked and viscous gels and various different types of Sealing Products. In addition to our standard range of Gel Products and Sealing Products, we provide unique solutions for client’s problems associated with pipeline and well applications. We often work to very tight time scales and delivery schedules.

Our technology and experience stems from our Director Jim Murray’s many years experience in the chemical industry and thirty one years experience in the oilfield industry. His experience in the oil and gas industry in Aberdeen started in the 1970’s when the industry was establishing in Aberdeen, Scotland. His interest and knowledge in Gel technologies is innovative and unique. He perfected the manufacture of ready made gels and gel pigs.The products we supply for use in the North Sea associated with oil well drilling and production are environmentally friendly and are registered with CEFAS an agency of DTI. 

We currently have 4 employees, 3 Chemists (Director Jim Murray, Director Alison Taylor and Chemist Jamie Percival) and 1 Administrator (Audrey Spearman). 

Alchemy Oilfield Services Ltd is presently growing due to increased sales to the oil and gas service sector.  We are also presently receiving a large amount of enquiries from overseas.  We supply in Australia, Norway, Far East, Brazil, Nigeria and other European countries, the aim being for Alchemy to become an internationally known company.  Alchemy is also engaged in research and development as well as product manufacture to meet client’s requirements.  We are increasing the product range and support facilities for clients from month to month as our latest developments receive regulatory approval.

We are flexible in our thinking and we provide a solution based response to pipeline emergencies and various unique chemical treatment applications for remediation of difficult and sometimes safety critical applications.
