It’s been a few busy years since our last update. Not only have our logistics solution facilitated effectiveness and cost savings in Shell’s operations in Gulf of Mexico, but we have also added over 10 new countries to our list of serviced regions.
Looking ahead in these challenging times for the industry, the WellOffice suite actually performs stronger than ever before inside Shell, and we see many new opportunities to grow both internally and externally.
Shell Upstream Americas have moved our Rig Logistics Management from the pilot phase to implementation phase 1. We are now onboard 6 rigs and aim to be fully implemented on all of Shell’s offshore installations by spring 2017.
The Lithuanian office is fully occupied with the pilot phase of Shell’s Well Cost Estimation Tool, application scheduled for implementation phase late 2016.
They are also developing an E2Open client for the RLM implementation.
Our Norwegian team is busy servicing the WellOffice infrastucture, and developing new features for global deployment mainly in the areas of performance & planning.

Our hunt for talent in Lithuania is nearly complete, and we have officially registered the subsidiary Flinke Folk as a Lithuanian company. The new branch will primarily serve as a development and support office, helping us to build even greater software as well as expanding our customer support throughout the World.
Currently we are busy setting up our office in Klaipeda which is not only a beautiful and vibrant city, but also one of the biggest centers for technology in Lithuania.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank and welcome our new employees in Lithuania. Together we hope to take WellOffice and Flinke Folk to the next level!

As we enter 2014 the interest and demand for the WellOffice suite and our services are increasing. To address this we are now seeking candidates in Lithuania to fill 2-3 positions as programmers to support our development team in Norway. If our search is successful we are looking to establish a new WellOffice branch in a yet to be determined city in the country.

Today marks an important step for WellOffice as we have just launched some of our applications globally in Shell.
Joining our existing regions Norway, UK and the Netherlands, the first new regions to take advantage of our software solutions include Malaysia, China, New Zealand and the Philippines.
This will most certainly be a very busy year for Flinke Folk, and to meet that demand we have recently welcomed networking and hardware specialists Ove Hunstok (late 2013) and Espen Ørland (January 2014) to our team.
We are proud to have come this far, and will hopefully add additional employees and countries to our map in 2014.
