Petrofac, a provider of oilfield services to the international oil and gas industry, has appointed Dave Blackburn, formerly of Hess Corporation, as Senior Vice President Engineering and Operations, based in Aberdeen. 

Petrofac said on Monday that Blackburn, forming part of Petrofac’s Engineering & Production Services (EPS) West leadership team, will be responsible for the business unit’s engineering and operations services across Europe, covering Petrofac’s greenfield and brownfield engineering activities, Service Operator, Duty Holder, Operations and Maintenance and technical services capabilities.

Blackburn joins Petrofac EPS West after working as Hess’ Operations Global advisor and in several project roles at Hess, most recent in Equatorial Guinea and the Gulf of Mexico.

Before joining Hess, he worked with Shell EP Europe for 25 years where he began as a trainee technician, working his way up to become an Offshore Installation Manager and Mature Asset Shutdown Manager on the Brent assets. He also held the position of Operations Manager for Shell EP Europe’s Central platforms, Petrofac added.

Walter Thain, Managing Director of Petrofac EPS West, said: “I am very much looking forward to working alongside Dave. He brings operations, engineering and senior leadership experience to Petrofac. His extensive knowledge of working in the UKCS, the Gulf of Mexico and West Africa is directly aligned to the operating footprint of our EPS West business which will support and assure our ongoing delivery and future growth aspirations.”

Blackburn added: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Petrofac, and the role is a natural fit given my background. I look forward to making an impact within existing markets and also new geographies.”
