Aberdeen-based well management company Zenith Energy has appointed a chief operating officer (COO) at its Australian base.
Zenith Energy said it established Zenith Energy Australia in the second half of 2017 and appointed Tom Terris as COO to manage its Australian operations.
The company added that Zenith Energy Australia, which also has an office in Abu Dhabi, provided specialist expertise for the complete well life cycle, from conceptual design phases through to field development planning, well operations, well intervention, and well abandonments.
Terris brings more than 13 years of management experience to the role, previously working for “a major name in the industry in Australia” as vice president of its Asia Pacific division where he headed its well management, subsea, and consultancy.
In his role at Zenith, he will manage all aspects of the Australian business unit, including tendering for well management and consultancy projects, business presentations, and client and consultant meetings.
Managing director of Zenith Energy, Martin Booth, said: “Tom has a wealth of industry knowledge and management experience after working in the sector for a number of years on high profile jobs. His appointment is instrumental as the company continues to grow internationally.”
Regarding his appointment, Terris added: “The Asia Pacific region is showing great signs of recovery and Zenith is very well positioned to take advantage of the upswing in activity. I look forward to playing a part of the continued success of the company in the future.”
