Xodus Group, a provider of engineering and advisory support for the oil and gas industry, has appointed a new operations director for the Asia Pacific region.
Xodus said on Tuesday that the appointment came as a result of a batch of new contracts won over the last six months by its Perth office. The total value of the contracts is A$3.5 million ($2.7 million).
Following new contract awards and growth of its decommissioning business, both in Australia and South-East Asia, Xodus hired additional local workforce and appointed Simon Allison as the APAC region operations director.
Allison is responsible for the management of the group’s office including business development and growing strategic new markets. Having previously been Xodus’ general manager in Scotland, he is maintaining an active technical role in projects, including project management. He joined Xodus as a production assurance manager in 2011.
Regarding his appointment, Allison said: “It’s a huge honor to lead the APAC team in Perth, and we have had an excellent year with some significant contract wins and the addition of new members of the team. We continue to grow and enhance our digital production optimization and monitoring tools.
“Over the next few months, we’re targeting sustained and supported growth while increasing our offering in the company’s core business areas of advisory service, field development, projects, asset support and decommissioning.”
