Grant Wallace joined the business in 2013 and developed their service offering to include Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) project services. He has also brought industry stalwart, Bob Dickson onto the senior management team as the company’s operations manager.

Bob has held senior positions such as sub-sea wells manager with Talisman and has over 35 years’ experience in the industry, managing projects in the North Sea, Middle East, Russia, Norway and North Africa.
