ADTI team joins well contractor Exceed

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Well management specialist Exceed has taken on eight former senior staff from Applied Drilling Technology International (ADTI).

In May, ADTI ceased trading after the company’s private equity owner Sun European Partners decided to close the business. This led to the loss of 90 jobs.

Following discussions with Exceed, the eight senior staff agreed to form a new venture to continue serving former ADTI clients and the wider North Sea market.  Within Exceed they will undertake the following roles:

John Anderson, commercial director wells

Calum MacDonald, well engineering and operations director

Steve Hayhurst, production technology and petroleum engineering manager

Bart van de Laar, wells project manager

Dave Craig, engineering team lead

John McNab, completions and workover manager

John Simpson, well test and decommissioning manager

Ross Mack, subsea manager.

Exceed now employs 30 people, with a further 20 contractors working on projects in the North Sea, Canada, West Africa, and Southeast Asia.
