International energy consultancy Xodus Group has appointed its first well decommissioning manager.

Xodus said on Monday that Gavin Bell was named as the company’s well decommissioning manager.

He will be based in Aberdeen and responsible for developing and delivering Xodus’ new well decommissioning service that was previously outsourced to external contractors.

The appointment follows a successful 2018 for the company’s decommissioning division which secured several new clients and won more than £2million ($2.64M) of work.

Bell is a chartered mechanical engineer with more than 25 years of experience in the international oil and gas industry. He joins from Repsol Sinopec Resources UK where he led a number of P&A projects through early planning phases including rig option selection and the development of P&A cost models.

Previously, he worked for Dong Energy in Denmark and spent 20 years working with well service contractors, Halliburton, and Baker Hughes.

Regarding his appointment, Bell said: “I’m excited to be leading this new business line for the company and working with a talented and enthusiastic group of industry professionals.”

Enrico Salardi, Xodus’ decommissioning director, added: “We have the ideal person to help us take on well decommissioning challenges around the world.

“We can now provide a fully integrated decommissioning service, such as the definition of decommissioning strategies for single assets or on a portfolio basis, regulatory compliance support and the identification of the best engineering solutions across all disciplines.”
