Ian Cobban Joins Atlantis Resources Board

Atlantis Resources announces the appointment of Ian Cobban as an independent Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. 

Ian has over 30 years’ experience in the subsea construction, operations and maintenance industry. He first joined Subsea Offshore Ltd, a subsidiary of Subsea 7, as an Offshore Inspection Coordinator in 1985. Thereafter Ian held various positions within the business, including General Manager with responsibility for the Asia Pacific and the Middle East; Vice President for Global Project and Operations in Aberdeen and Vice President for the Gulf of Mexico, covering the USA, Mexico and Trinidad.

He was recently Vice President, Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Quality (HSSEQ) at Subsea 7, where he reported directly to the CEO.

The Company also announces that Rune Nilsen, Non-Executive Director, is stepping down from the Board with immediate effect, having served a successful four year term on the board of Atlantis.

John Neill, Chairman of Atlantis commented:

I am delighted to welcome Ian to the board of Atlantis. His expertise in offshore construction and over 30 years in the subsea and marine industries brings a wealth of experience to our Board as we increase our focus on the execution of our strategy. He has an excellent track record in the offshore construction industry and is well known in the UK and international oil and gas community. He is therefore well equipped to assist the Company as we prepare to commence our offshore operations at the MeyGen project site in Scotland later this year.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Rune for his substantial contribution to the Company over the past four years. He has been involved with the Company during an amazing period of growth and success. The Board wishes him well for the future.”

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.
