SeekOps Inc., developer of advanced sensor technology for the energy sector, has strengthened its leadership team with the appointment of Iain Cooper as CEO on Sept. 10.
Cooper will be responsible for addressing the expanded global market demand for the company’s products while positioning it for increased growth.
Previously, Cooper led technology development, strategy and investment at Schlumberger and brings 30 years of experience in the energy sector. His experience will not only lead SeekOps through effective international scaling of its technology and services, but also expansion beyond traditional energy-sector business into other major industrial verticals, such as biogas, waste management and mining, monitoring broader range of chemical species.
“SeekOps actionable data products have been demonstrated in rigorous oil and gas environments, and while we will continue global growth to support upstream operations, SeekOps will also translate its capabilities to meet the needs of the midstream and downstream sectors,” Cooper said. “Furthermore, there are similar environmental and sustainability pressures across other industries that must be validated using accurate and reliable technologies, as typified by SeekOps.”
This move strengthens the current executive team as Andrew Aubrey, the company’s founder and former CEO, transitions to a new role as senior vice president of strategic partnerships. These strategic partnerships will be a key component of SeekOps’ future growth.
SeekOps’ unique sensor design eliminates false positive readings and localizes emissions sources to provide actionable data to oil and gas operators in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and the Middle East. Backed by funding from the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative Climate Investments (OGCI-CI), and Equinor Technology Ventures (ETV), SeekOps provides best-in-class technology to meet increasingly stringent environmental, sustainability and governance (ESG) reporting requirements, and enables producers worldwide realize their goal to reduce methane intensity from operations.
