Enteq Upstream, the oilfield services technology and equipment supplier, has appointed Suki Gill as the vice president of business development to drive the company’s technology growth, Enteq said on July 21.
The latest in a string of new hires solidifies Enteq’s ambition to strengthen measurements and logging while drilling and rotary steerable system technologies for the directional drilling market.
Gill joins Enteq with 15-years’ experience under her belt, ranging from hands on measurements and logging while drilling engineering, multiplatform integration projects, training and operations management, spanning three continents. She will be responsible for driving the development of existing and emerging portfolio by collaborating with customers to ensure industry needs are being accurately identified and addressed.
“As we continue to grow our global presence, having Suki on board as a technical industry expert will be pivotal when it comes to cementing our position as drivers of technology development,” Andrew Law, CEO, Enteq, said. “We are thrilled to welcome Suki on board and look forward to building on our existing success.”
Further to this position, Gill’s expertise in the industry is further solidified by her appointment as Chairperson to the MWD/LWD Sub-Committee, as part of the collaborative efforts of the International Association of Drilling contractors (IADC) and International Association of Directional Drilling (IADD) to develop a standardised metric for performance measurement in the directional drilling sector.
“This complementary role offers an exciting opportunity for additional cross-industry collaboration,” Gill said regarding her chairperson appointment. “I look forward to working with other technology experts, the IADC and IADD on the research and creation of some truly formative directional drilling industry performance standards.”
These appointments follow Andrew Law’s move to CEO along-side the hire of Neil Bird as project director to steer the development and growth of the SABER Tool.
