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.

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.

He also held the position of Operations Manager for Shell EP Europe’s Central platforms, Petrofac added.

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.”
