Our history

MPC Kinetic


MPC Group and Kinetic merge to become MPC Kinetic.

MPC Group


In a move to further enhance the company’s broad offering of specialist services to resource sector clients, Murphy Pipe and Civil decides to amalgamate its subsidiary companies Upstream Pipeline Testing (UPT), Australian Fusion Welding (AFW) and Australian Well Servicing (AWS) to now operate under just one multi-faceted company.


As part of this strategic amalgamation of services, Murphy Pipe and Civil rebrands itself to become MPC Group.

In September 2017 SCF Partners and Viburnum Funds acquired the majority stake in MPC Group from the Murphy Group and Pipe and Civil founding shareholders. 

The business is now set for further investment and future growth.



On 1st February, in front of the Brisbane oil & gas community, CEO Leigh Rigg formally announced the integration and rebranding of Vause, Grizzly, Surtron & Wildcat into the single entity Kinetic.



Kinetic Services Group Pty Ltd is pleased to announce it has combined forces with Wildcat Chemicals Australia Pty Ltd (Wildcat).

Kinetic, a resource focused services company that offers Logging, Well Intervention, Fluid Management & Production Services, has partnered with Wildcat, a leading provider of speciality production chemicals.

The partnership with Wildcat diversifies Kinetic’s service offerings and significantly increases the company’s exposure to the production phase associated with all regional oil & gas assets, both onshore and offshore.
