UK: Acteon's InterAct Strengthens Its Business

InterAct Activity Management Ltd, an Acteon company, has enhanced its abandonment engineering skills base with the recent appointments of Dave Barclay, Allen Scoging and Juliann Canty.

Dave joins InterAct from BP, where he was a well abandonment engineer involved with the subsea abandonment of wells on the UK Continental Shelf. Previously, Dave spent over 20 years as a completions engineer working in locations across the globe.

Allen Scoging has joined InterAct from Schlumberger. Allen has a MEng (Hons) in mechanical engineering from Loughborough University, UK, and is currently completing his chartership with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers. While at Schlumberger, Allen was initially based in Stavanger, Norway, as a measurement while drilling field engineer preparing and running reservoir characterisation and telemetry tools. Allen moved to Schlumberger’s technology centre in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, before joining InterAct in January. Allen has already been involved with well plugging and abandonment work for TAQA Bratani, Talisman Energy, Perenco and Centrica Energy Upstream.

Juliann Canty joins InterAct from Proserv where she was a project engineer involved with subsea and marine technology. She has a MEng (Hons) in mechanical engineering from Belfast University, Northern Ireland, and hopes to embark on her chartership with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers. Previously, Juliann worked for Schlumberger, initially offshore as a cementing engineer before moving into the office environment.

InterAct has also set up a base in its parent company’s offices in Aberdeen, UK. Commenting on the office opening and the new hires, Stuart Wordsworth, general manager of InterAct Activity Management, said, “InterAct has been building its reputation and capabilities in the decommissioning market over recent years to enable it to be in a position to serve this emerging market. I am very pleased to be placing competent, experienced engineers in Aberdeen so we can really show the market what we can do.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
