OIS Names New Managing Director in Aberdeen

Offshore Installation Services Ltd (OIS), an Acteon company, has named Colin Shellard as its new managing director.

Based in Aberdeen, Shellard is responsible for setting the strategy at OIS, as the company continues to focus on new opportunities in the offshore decommissioning sector. He will also play a key role in developing opportunities for OIS to work together with other Acteon companies, OIS said in a press release.

Shellard has more than 16 years of experience in offshore construction and subsea engineering. He joined OIS as vice president, operations, in December 2014, and was instrumental in leading OIS’ recent successful well decommissioning campaign with Centrica Energy and Antrim Energy. Prior to joining OIS, Shellard was project director at Technip Offshore Wind Ltd, where he oversaw all projects and tenders in the company’s cables and marine renewables sector.

Shellard has extensive knowledge of pipe and umbilical lay, diving operations, structures installation, remote (driverless) construction and decommissioning methods and trenching, gained during his time at Stolt Offshore and Saipem. He has also worked in leadership roles within consulting engineering and project management firms JP Kenny and Prospect, developing a deep understanding of the management of small teams and complex problems that face Operators in the offshore industry, the company added.

Mark Towell, vice president, Acteon, said, “OIS recently completed its largest vessel-based, multi-operator well decommissioning campaign and is well-positioned to provide North Sea Operators with the most cost-effective way to decommission non-revenue generating assets beyond 2015. The Acteon management team welcomes Colin as a director of OIS, and we are confident he will build on his achievements to date.”

Shellard said, “Well decommissioning activities are ideally suited to multi-operator campaigns and the multi-well approach, and OIS demonstrates that significant economies of scale are available to Operators willing to participate in this way. I am looking forward to leading the continual growth of OIS and developing new opportunities for the company in the global decommissioning sector.”
