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.



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.



The formation of Kinetic is announced, the culmination of three accomplished service companies: Vause, Grizzly and Surtron. The combination of these companies into a single well services company creates the perfect blend of practical innovation and multi-skilled lateral thinkers that do what we say we are going to do.



Vautron acquires Al Mansoori Operations in Thailand and Grizzly Energy Services in 2014 to become Kinetic.



In 2011, a strategy to create a diversified services company for a growing energy and minerals sector begins with the merger of Surtron and Vause to form Vautron. (A transaction funded by SCF Partners and Viburnum Funds.)
