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.”
