Scientific Drilling International (SDI) has named Pamela S. Pierce as CEO and president effective July 31, 2020, a position she has held on an interim basis since May 2020.
With the recent changes in the oil and gas sector and the challenges a global pandemic creates, Pierce is already executing vision and direction for the future.
Pierce has more than 40 years of experience in the energy industry. She started her career as an offshore drilling engineer with ARCO and served in numerous drilling and production positions of increasing responsibility. When ARCO formed Vastar Resources, she led the Offshore Business Unit. Later Pierce led Vastar’s business development function responsible for mergers and acquisitions.
Pam joined SDI’s board of directors in June 2011 and was lead director for the past year; she will continue to serve as a member of the board of directors. She is also a member of Laredo Petroleum Inc. and Shawcor Ltd. boards of directors. Pierce holds a bachelor of science in petroleum engineering from the University of Oklahoma and an MBA in corporate finance from the University of Dallas.
“Pam’s energy experience combined with her leadership capabilities are perfect for leading SDI in this time of extreme market challenge,” Kedrin Van Steenwyk, shareholder and member of the board of directors, said.
