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.
