New Appointments Bolster EPC ’s North Sea Capabilities

Press Release
Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Specialist project management company EPC Offshore has announced the appointment of new managers to work on two of the North Sea’s biggest developments, as the company continues to increase growth in 2012.

Project manager Euan Sellar will focus on the final phases of the Rochelle field development for Endeavour Energy in the Central North Sea. Aberdeen-based EPC has provided project management services for the pre-sanction and execution phases of this large subsea project, which is entering the construction phase this year.

With more than 18 years technical experience in the oil and gas industry, Sellar has worked within the engineering, operations and project management disciplines for a number of operators, including Marathon, Total and Shell on projects across Houston, Norway and Ireland.
Meanwhile, Rob Harris joins EPC as study team leader on the Lancaster development for Hurricane, one of the most significant oil discoveries in the West of Shetlands in recent years.

Harris joins with 30 years of process and facilities experience working on several development plans for Shell, ConocoPhillips, Chevron and BG Group in the North Sea, from concept selection through to production. He will lead the team as they work toward bringing the development to concept selection before the end of 2012.

Sellar will be based within EPC’s office in Albyn Terrace, Aberdeen, while Harris will work alongside the Lancaster development team at the Hurricane offices in Surrey. This is EPC’s first venture in the south-east of England and will see the team work closely with engineering colleagues in Aberdeen and Hurricane’s subsurface and drilling engineers.

EPC Offshore works with exploration and production companies to progress projects to sanction and final delivery. It uses a comprehensive and structured set of principles to achieve maximum project value, optimum resource utilization and quality assurance.
Since its inception in 2009, the fast-growing company has executed in excess of £15million worth of project management work. Employee numbers have doubled to 60 in the last 12 months.
