Niall Urquhart, who joined Reactive in 2015, was appointed as COO. Urquhart has 16 years of industry experience and has overseen Reactive’s operations across the Middle East since its entrance to the region.

Chris Barnes, who has worked with Reactive since its inception in 2012, was appointed CTO. Barnes, who sits on advisory bodies for organizations such as the API, brings 33 years of experience and will be responsible for Reactive’s swellable downhole tools and the development of complimentary solutions.
