Xodus has appointed Enrico Salardi as its decommissioning director to lead the company’s ‘decom division’ formed in 2015.
Salardi joins Xodus from Quadrant Energy where he was senior project manager for a number of decommissioning programmes in Australia.
“Xodus has been ahead of the game when it comes to decommissioning, from advising governments to strategic planning,” said Salardi. “I am joining a very experienced team that has worked on managing processes and the execution of work on many assets in the North Sea and around the world.
“I hope my knowledge will add to this and provide the team with an insight into what challenges the operators are facing and how we can help ease the demanding process of decommissioning, including reducing associated costs.”
Salardi will work alongside Xodus’ decommissioning lead, Peter Tipler, who will continue to focus on delivering the innovation, collaboration and strategic solutions that are required to reduce the overall cost of decommissioning.
Wim van der Zande, CEO of Xodus Group said: “Enrico has vast experience of working at all stages of an asset’s lifecycle and his recent work in directly managing a decommissioning project will provide our team with valuable insight of an operator’s perspective. He will bring his learnings from global decommissioning projects to our key areas, including the North Sea, which we hope will lead to further cost savings for our clients.
“As we’ve shown over the last few years, Xodus is a trusted advisor in decommissioning. Our team can apply its deep understanding of decommissioning from execution of projects globally to focus on the key drivers that materially impact the overall cost for operators.”
