About Red Kite

Red Kite Oilfield Services was first registered in December 3rd 2018, it is made up of enthusiastic personnel who are driven to provide best in class customer service and operational execution in the pipe severance and perforating business in the oil and gas industry. The name Red Kite came about when the owner and founder was driving in the North East of Scotland and saw that the Red Kite was being re-introduced to the Aberdeenshire area.  This was coincidental as we were looking at re-introducing the pipe cutting and perforation capability, as an independent company, with its primary focus on providing pipe cutting and perforating service to the oil and gas market, also the area in the globe that the Red Kite was present in is similar to the markets that Red Kite is initially focussing on.
