AGR Focuses on Growth in UK by Strengthening Its Team

International oil services and technology firm AGR has recruited Chris Rayburn as Business Development Manager based near London.

In January AGR will move into new offices in Guildford, allowing up to 50 per cent expansion of its London team as the Norwegian firm focuses on growth in the UK.

Chris, who was previously Global Business Development Manager for Halliburton’s Drill Bits & Services Product Service Line, has over 30 years’ oil and gas experience, much of it in international markets including Saudi Arabia, Gabon, Tunisia and Algeria.

His key focus is on supporting AGR’s London-based clients operating in the UK and Africa.

He said: “I’m eager to develop existing and new business in the area, particularly assisting clients to realise cost-effective solutions for the planning and execution of their well construction projects.

“AGR is the world’s largest independent well management company with a history of delivering in challenging waters. I believe we are in an excellent position to significantly grow from our London base.”

Ian Burdis, EVP UK and West Africa, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Chris to the team. Our London-based customers are already benefiting from the strengthened support he brings.

“This appointment, combined with the opening of our new office in Guildford, comes as we position ourselves for significant growth in the UK.”

AGR supplies innovative technical solutions and services to the global offshore industry. It has offices in Norway, Australia, Brazil, Canada, CIS, Malaysia, UK and the USA.
