Oil services firm OEG Offshore has announced several key appointments to head up the operations team at its Aberdeen base.
The company – which specialises in the design, build and rental of cabins and cargo-carrying container units for the offshore oil and gas market – has recruited three new employees and promoted two current staff to manage planning, installation, QHSE, fabrication and electrical engineering operations.
John Tutt, 47, will take on the role of QHSE Manager having joined OEG from HB Rentals, where he headed up the firm's health and safety department for two years. With over 10 years' experience in quality and safety, John's new position will involve overseeing and developing QHSE performances across all OEG's existing and new facilities both locally and internationally.
Having notched up over 20 years' experience in the welding and fabrication sector, James McDonald, 42, has been promoted to the post of Fabrication Manager. He previously worked as Fabrication Supervisor and will manage the delivery of all fabrication operations at OEG.
Also promoted is Workshop Supervisor Colin Munro, 40, who will now assume the role of Installations Manager. He will manage the outfitting and finishing of the modular cabins at OEG's Kirkton facility.
Steven Fyfe, 48, has been appointed as Project Planner, having moved from Maersk where he was Planning Engineer for the firm's FPSO fleet. His new role will involve implementing planning schedules and processes to better assist and integrate the project management and operations activities across all facilities.
Finally, Gregor Mackenzie, 29, joins OEG as Lead Electrical Engineer, having previously worked as Senior HVAC Design Engineer for HVAC & Refrigeration Engineering. He will be responsible for the detailed design of module instrumentation and electrical systems at OEG's Kirkton facility.
Stuart Heggie, Group Operations Director said: “These new appointments have all been made with a view to strengthening our operations team at the Aberdeen headquarters.
“All of the new appointments have a great deal of experience and expertise within their individual areas and their fresh input will ensure that OEG continues to be dynamic and innovative in its approach to delivering a quality service across a broad range of products. Two promotions have also been made internally in recognition of the high standard of work that James and Colin have consistently produced during their time with the company.
“Strengthening our operations team is part of our plans to continuously provide our customers with the highest standard of service that we can on a worldwide basis. Becoming a global leader in our industry continues to be a key objective for OEG Offshore and we recognise that a major part of achieving this goal is through the recruitment of talented people who are the best in their fields.”
