Global energy services company Senergy has bolstered its senior management team with the appointment of two vastly experienced vice presidents (VP) who have a combined total of more than 60 years’ experience in the offshore industry.
The company, which provides fully-integrated project and asset development services across the energy sector, has appointed Ian Williamson VP of Contracts and Commercial and Dave Reed VP of Business Efficiency.
The company said both positions have been created as a result of Senergy’s fast-growing footprint worldwide and with a view to a further increase in demand as the company continues to evolve. They are both internal appointments, following a recent management restructure within the company.
Since January, Senergy has created more than 90 new posts within the company. The firm expects to continue to expand its workforce during the rest of the year.
Senergy applies its expertise and technology to develop and manage oil and gas fields and alternative energy projects in partnership with its clients. The company was recently ranked in the Sunday Times 2012 HSBC International Track 200 league table as well as that of its 2011 Virgin Fast Track 100 of Britain’s fastest-growing privately owned companies.
The appointments will see Mr. Williamson based in the company’s Queen’s Terrace office in Aberdeen and Mr. Reed will operate from Kuala Lumpur. Both positions will involve a degree of travel between the company’s network of international offices.
Alasdair Buchanan, Senergy’s chief operating officer, said, “As Senergy grows, it is important that we continue to meet our customers’ demands. Ian and Dave both have a huge amount of experience in the industry and within Senergy and they will bring a great deal of industry knowledge and ideas to help propel us forward and underpin our global footprint.
Mr. Williamson and Mr. Reed have been part of Senergy’s history since the company’s inception in 2005. Both were employees of Xcavo – a well engineering and performance management company – which merged with subsurface consultancy RML (Reservoir Management Limited) to become Senergy.
With almost 30 years of operational and business experience, Mr. Williamson was originally a well engineer and began his career with Texaco and Premier Oil before moving to the contractor side of wells project management with Global Marine Integrated Services – Europe in 1994. He moved to set up Xcavo in 2002.
Mr. Williamson’s role will involve leading a team which will be responsible for the risk management of contracts and ensuring consistency. The team will also champion commercial business best practice and take on an entrepreneurial role in supporting new contracts with the aim of enhancing Senergy’s capabilities.
Mr. Reed recently worked with the Oil Spill Prevention and Response Advisory Group (OSPRAG) where he was involved in the UK offshore industry’s representations to the Government following the Gulf of Mexico disaster. During his 32-year career, he has gained considerable operational and management experience in well construction across the globe, specializing in high pressure high temperature well construction and operations.
The role taken on by Mr. Reed will see him taking responsibility for the implementation of key areas highlighted for performance improvement. He will also work with the Corporate Development division on acquisitions with a focus on the integration of new additions into Senergy’s overall group.
