Aberdeen-based subsea installation contractor Bibby Offshore has appointed Nicky Etherson as its new commercial director to help facilitate the company’s ambitious growth plans.

Ms. Etherson joins the business with almost 20 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, having previously held the position of head of contracts for Total E&P UK Limited.

Here she was responsible for managing all aspects of the contracts function, supported by a team of 15 personnel, covering a range of services including; drilling, well control, subsea support, logistics and topside operations.

Prior to this, Ms. Etherson worked for oil and gas majors Acergy Limited, AMEC Oil and Gas and Technip Offshore.

As Commercial Director, Ms. Etherson will be responsible for all Commercial and Contractual governance within the Bibby Offshore group of companies.

Bibby Offshore is on target to achieve a turnover of £220million by the end of 2013 and plans to increase this to £650million by 2017. In May this year Bibby Offshore relocated to a new, purpose built office facility at Prospect Park, Westhill, to provide the company with the additional capacity necessary to support its significant increase in staff numbers and services, as Bibby Offshore’s operations expand both in the UK and internationally.

BOL and BRIL, part of Bibby Offshore has grown from 10 employees in 2003 to now employing more than 1,300 people onshore and offshore worldwide, with offices in Aberdeen, Liverpool, Singapore and Trinidad.
