Qserv is a Scottish oilfield service company that specialises in oil-well services operations, including wireline, coiled tubing and pumping services. The company also performs other engineering services, most notably pipeline services.


The company, based in Portlethen, Aberdeen, was founded in November 2001 by Tommy Dreelan, who is its managing director. The company name is a contraction of the slogan "Quality Service".[citation needed]

Business overview[edit]

Qserv was awarded the 2004 International Safety Award from the British Safety Council because of its zero accident rates, controlled safety policies, and commitment to health and safety.[2] Tommy Dreelan was named "Grampian Industrialist 2006" by Junior Chamber International Aberdeen.[4] Qserv was one of the five finalists in the Sunday Times’s Entrepreneur Challenge.[1] Qserv provides coiled tubing and pumping related services to BP in the North Sea.[5] In 2006, it acquired KCA Deutag's wireline and well-service division, and the coiled-tubing unit of Weatherford, which increased Qserv worldwide operations significantly.[6]
