history, key experts, services and ideology of the company

Limited Liability Company "Brend-Vik LTD" was established in September 28, 1994 in the city of Chernihiv - one of the centers of the East oil and gas industry in the region.

The main goal of the Сompany is to provide the services for hydrocarbons exploration and production to local and foreign oil and gas companies. Since its foundation and till now the Company is headed by the Director – Serhiy Halchenko.

Company's history consists of two phases:

In 1994 - 2012, the Company was actively growing and developing the Ukrainian market. The main activities were focused on fulfilling geological-thematic and local survey works - local and zonal predictions of oil and gas content, economic and geological assessment of prospective and production objects, projects on wells drilling and pilot commercial development of hydrocarbon fields, etc. In this period the main customers of the served works were both the government enterprises (SE "Ukrainian State Geological Exploration Institute", NJSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine", PJSC "Ukrnafta", PJSC "Ukrgasvydobuvannya", SE "Naukanaftogaz") and the private oil and gas companies (LLC "Pari", LLC "Naftogazproekt", LLC "Prime-gas"). The best specialists of Ukrainian oil and gas industry such as geologists, geophysicists, petroleum engineers and economists, were involved in performing of these works. During this period, LLC "Brend-Vik LTD" has proved its worth as a reliable partner and responsible contractor on the market of services in the oil and gas industry of Ukraine. At this particular time a strong basis for further development of the Company was laid.

In the beginning of 2013, after experienced and ambitious specialists such as geologists and geophysicists joined the Company, the reload of Company's workflow had been performed: the new quality level of the work was achieved and significant expansion of the range of services was provided for oil and gas companies working not only in Ukraine, but also abroad. In 2014 LLC "Brend-Vik LTD" opened its production office in Kiev and equipped it with modern hardware and software products, allowing the Company to carry out customers' tasks on up-to-date international level. During this period the Company maintains good cooperation with leading scientific and manufacturing institutes and companies: Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, «Endevour» Group of Companies, «Tetrale» Group of Companies and others.
