ClearWELL gets new managing director

Alasdair Fergusson

Flow assurance and production optimization specialist, ClearWELL Oilfield Solutions, has appointed a new managing director of the company.

ClearWELL said on Tuesday that the appointment of Alasdair Fergusson was made to increase the company’s international footprint.

Fergusson has more than 25 years of oilfield management and marketing experience having worked for major service companies in Europe and the Middle East. Most recently, he held the Paris-based position of business manager Europe and Africa, production technologies at Schlumberger’s M-I SWACO, where he led and grew business capability in new markets.

Before joining Schlumberger, Fergusson was the director of eastern hemisphere engineered chemistry department at Weatherford, based in the UAE, where the team delivered its largest-ever contract win. This was preceded by a ten-year stint at Baker Hughes.

The appointment follows FrontRow Energy Technology Group Limited’s recent acquisition of 50% of ClearWELL from previous owner MSL Oilfield Services, which retains the remaining 50%.

Fergusson said: “I am delighted to be appointed to lead ClearWELL at such an exciting time for the business. ClearWELL offers a step-change in treatment cost for a huge number of wells world-wide, and we now have a business totally focused on delivering this technology.

“World oil production is at an all-time high, and we produce seven times as much water from these wells as oil, so the demand for cost-effective handling of the scaling problems in that water is huge.

“I’m very much looking forward to working with the FrontRow team and benefitting from the experience that MSL bring.”

FrontRow CEO Stuart Ferguson said: “Alasdair’s appointment is a significant boost not only to ClearWELL, but also to the wider FrontRow group. The results he has achieved throughout his career to date are impressive, and the experience he brings to our team will be extremely valuable moving forward.

“Alasdair is the first appointment for ClearWELL post-acquisition, however, we expect to see staff numbers continue to increase as the company fulfills its high-growth potential and deploys more units in the field. We have set ambitious targets, and are confident these targets will be met under Alasdair’s leadership.”

Martin Clark, managing director at MSL Oilfield Services, added: “Alasdair’s experience in the oilfield industry, combined with his motivation and drive, makes him the ideal candidate to lead ClearWELL successfully.”
