Xodus Group has promoted Andrew Sewell to global subsurface lead in order to drive forward its global subsurface capabilities.
Sewell has more than 24 years of experience working in the oil and gas industry, initially as a geophysicist, and joined Xodus in 2012 as subsurface manager. He previously worked with Senergy (now LR Senergy) as region manager for Europe and Africa. He started his career with Schlumberger after graduating from Cambridge University with a master’s degree in physics.
Sewell has worked across Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, delivering projects including geophysical reviews, field development plans, and due diligence investigations. Recent and ongoing projects that he is managing include exploration projects in Kenya and field development projects in Kurdistan and Nigeria.
Xodus’ subsurface offering manages all technical aspects of exploration and reservoir development, and includes the core disciplines of geology, geophysics, petrophysics, and reservoir engineering, as well as more niche skill sets required for activities such as fracture characterization. The company provides technical services to exploration and production (E&P) companies, investors, startups, governments, and regulatory bodies, along with services to private equity businesses and other financial institutions.
