New Partnership Between ET Works And GTS-Geotech

Written by: Darren Biggs

ET Works and GTS-Geotech are delighted to announce a newly formed partnership between the two companies to leverage their collaborative skills across the subsurface IT and data domains in oil and gas, renewables, and the broader energy marketplace.


London, April 21 2022 ET Works and GTS-Geotech share a long history in terms of their collective disciplines and areas of expertise, with both organisations also nearing their 30th anniversaries.

Darren Biggs (Geoscience Services Manager at ET Works) – “We’re excited by the opportunity to be working with Gareth and the team again. Exploiting the synergies between the two companies, and the differences in the geographical areas we cover and verticals we can support, makes for a really potent combination. ET Works have offices in the UK, Norway, and South Africa, and over the last fifteen years we have expanded rapidly outside of our traditional markets, gaining fantastic clients in almost every major vertical including the public sector, healthcare, higher education, and defence. Our work with clients like Robert Gordon University, the Science Museum Group, and the Royal Opera House provide new perspectives and cross-pollination of ideas into our more traditional energy sector market clients. GTS-Geotech is a company we know and trust – they have a long-established relationship with their clients ranging from SMEs to the super-majors, combined with excellent resourcing and skills-matching. In collaborating, we can open up new markets and bring ET Works skills around IT, subsurface domain expertise, data architecture, and consultancy, together with our off-site services and our DMAAS (Data Management-as-a-Service) options. Our geographical footprint allows us to work with GTS-Geotech to expand our collective reach into Africa and Scandinavia.” 

Gareth Grundy (General Manager at GTS-Geotech) – “ET Works are a company we’ve collaborated with for a long time. The next-gen IT systems and services that ET Works provide to the market are cutting edge and highlighted by their client base, which includes many household names. By bringing the relationship into a formal footing, we can showcase the very best of the two companies and bring technology to the energy sector that is not only new but best-of-breed and, importantly, is fully integrated. ET Works domain specialisms around offshore and subsurface have always matched our client needs and the existing GTS skill-sets, but by working together, we can address not only knowns skills-gaps, but the new areas of consultancy and solutions as the sector takes its next step into Cloud, AI, ML, and DevOps. ET Works’ wider solutions base also brings its history and expanding expertise in renewables and offshore wind, which both companies recognise as critical as the world moves to a low-carbon energy environment. GTS-Geotech’s in-house Scout Recruitment expertise promises to enhance these synergies even further.”
