Pajak Engineering specializes in matching the right personnel to any client project by prequalifying a cadre of independent consultants with wide ranging experience in all aspects of oil and gas supervision and engineering, including wellsite, drilling, completions, construction, geology, and safety. The company ensures the certifications of all their supervisors are current before they go into the field, which safeguards the client’s project and people. Additionally, senior Pajak technical staff back their domestic and international supervisors and engineers on a 24/7 basis.
“We handle the insurance for our consultants and ensure their safety training meets ComplyWorks and ISnetworld standards,” clarifies Lassu. “Our safety manual has been approved, and all our protocols are in place in terms of insurance and WCB. Because of the services Pajak provides, our clients feel like they’re going to be taken care of by an established company rather than individual consultants.”
Other Pajak clients choose to benefit from having a comprehensive Drilling & Completions Department at their exclusive disposal on demand. Pajak provides these clients with ‘Drop-in’ teams consisting of self-contained crews with the required expertise to get the job done efficiently and cost-effectively. Project Asset Management and Accounting services are also available through ‘Drop-in’ teams, which ensures junior explorers don’t need to compromise while keeping their costs in check.
“Once placed, the consultant would work directly with the client to fulfill their needs,” continues Lassu. “When plans change, the client might want to decrease the scope of their project. In that scenario, they would just send a couple of personnel home and no longer have the expense of paying them. This gives our client a greater degree of flexibility.”
Behind the scenes, Pajak manages the complex logistics of multiple master services agreements required for all their consultants and ensures the essential paperwork, including invoicing, is efficiently handled. The consultants can rest easy knowing their interests are being managed as well. This enables them to fully focus on the client’s project.
“I always say the biggest compliment we can get is when a consultant we’ve worked with finds his own job, is asked to recommend services, and they bring the work to Pajak,” says Lassu.
