Press Release

Leif Ove Svensen

TWMA, the leader in integrated drilling services and environmental solutions for the international onshore and offshore oil and gas industry, has appointed Leif Ove Svensen as Scandinavia region manager.


Mr Svensen has more than 22 years’ experience in the upstream oil and gas sector and previously held senior management positions within a number of Norwegian oil and gas service companies.
 

Responsible for managing the implementation of TWMA’s growth strategy for the region, Svensen will play a key role in the further development of the company’s Stavanger and Mongstad bases.


Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Svensen said: “Some of the largest operators within the industry have major interests in Norway and the Scandinavia region. As demand for TWMA’s solutions continues to grow, it is important that we continue to deliver the quality service for which we are known, providing operators with a complete solutions package.”


TWMA currently employs 30 people at its recently improved Stavanger and Mongstad bases, supplying onshore processing, slops treatment and support services for skip and ship operations in the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).
 

TWMA’s sales director Rob O’Neill adds: “Norway is a key strategic region for TWMA. We have recently increased the capacity at our Mongstad base and this means that we are perfectly placed to provide Norwegian operators with solutions that are both cost-effective and environmentally sustainable. Looking forward, we are also working alongside various operators and industry associations to potentially introduce offshore processing to the NCS region. 

“Svensen’s experience will be key as we continue to develop and grow this important market.”


TWMA is currently working with the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association (Norsk Olje & Gass) as part of a steering group to coordinate efforts by operators to outline and implement recognised protocols for handling and treating waste materials associated with drilling operations offshore on the NCS.
