SeaBird Exploration, a marine seismic acquisition provider, has named a new chief executive officer of the company and won work in the Gulf of Mexico.

SeaBird said last Sunday that Hans Petter Klohs was named the company’s CEO.

According to Seabird, he took on the position on June 24 from Christophe Debouvry who was the CEO of the company since 2016.

Klohs has extensive senior executive management experience from Norwegian publicly listed companies in both oil service and oil & gas.

Previous senior positions include serving as CFO and later as CEO in GC Rieber Shipping for over ten years, the CEO in Arrow Seismic and Armada Seismic ASA, and as the CFO in Rocksource.

SeaBird added that Klohs would resign from his position as the board member of the company as a consequence of the appointment.

Heidar Engebret, chairman of the board of directors, said: “Hans Petter Klohs has vast management experience from a number of relevant reputable companies, and has consistently delivered strong results in his previous positions. The board of directors is extremely pleased that Hans Petter has agreed to take the CEO position of the company, and the board looks forward to working closely with Hans Petter in our forthcoming efforts to lead and grow SeaBird going forward.”

In other company news, SeaBird signed an agreement to provide a source vessel for an upcoming seismic survey in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The company said in a stock exchange filing on Monday that the project was anticipated to begin during the third quarter and would last for a minimum of approximately 60 days. SeaBird will be using the Osprey Explorer vessel for the project.
