Seadrill adds new board member

Offshore driller Seadrill Limited has appointed a new director of the company with immediate effect.

Seadrill said on Wednesday that the company named Harald Thorstein as a new director.

“Thorstein brings a wealth of relevant experience to the company having worked extensively in the offshore and shipping industries,” the driller said.

Harald Thorstein served as a director of Seadrill Partners LLC since September 2012. He is currently employed by Seatankers Consultancy Services UK Limited, previously Frontline Corporate Services, in London.

Before that he was employed in the corporate finance division of DnB NOR Markets, specializing in the offshore and shipping sectors. He also served as a director of Ship Finance International Limited since 2011.

Thorstein served as a director of Solstad Farstad ASA since June 2017 and Axactor AB since September 2017. The new director of Seadrill has an MSc in Industrial Economics and Technology Management from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

This appointment follows the resignation of Ørjan Svanevik from the position of Seadrill Limited director in late November. Svanevik served as a director of Seadrill since October 2014.
