Brinker Tech names new CEO
Aberdeen, September 8, 2011
UK-based Brinker Technology, a provider of workover services to oil and gas operators, has named vice president of sales and operations Kenny McAllister as its new chief executive officer.
The appointment is tied to an aggressive three-year growth strategy to expand its global reach and exploit potential markets with a particular focus on the Middle East and Far East.
As part of this Brinker will also undertake a recruitment drive as it aims to create upwards of four new sales positions worldwide before the year end.
Operating from its global headquarters in Aberdeen, Brinker launched its Middle East facility earlier this year and has applied its platelet barrier technology and micro-platelet plasma across a number of wells in the region. This has been matched with further growth in the UK and Europe.
Both technologies provide a fully mobile, compact and permanent solution that has the capability to manage integrity issues across an entire field. They negate the large equipment footprint required by a standard rig or hoist workover and the technology can be deployed anywhere in the world. It is virtually risk-free compared to rig-based intervention solutions that are complex, expensive and can take months of planning.
“These are extremely exciting times for Brinker and I am delighted to have the full support of the Board to drive the business forward,” said McAllister.
“Our technology is revolutionising the workover market with clients reaping the benefits of our well integrity solutions, as we can turn their wells back on in days rather than the months of planning it would take for a conventional workover. Increasingly, we are adding value by bringing wells back online which never make it to the top of the workover priority list.”
“The results of our platelet barrier technology and micro-platelet plasma are instant, as is the value operators can expect from their wells,” McAllister continued.
“The time saved using our solutions is matched by our low environmental impact, as we do not require a rig or any other heavy plant equipment. The ultimate benefit for our clients is that they can implement our technologies as part of their maintenance schedules, ensuring the long term integrity of their fields and optimum production potential,” he concluded.
McAllister joined Brinker in late 2010 from Halliburton where he was a senior account manager.
With more than 16 years’ experience bringing new technology to the oil and gas industry through a variety of roles in sales, operations and general management, he has worked across the world spending time in Europe, Africa, FSU and the Middle East.
The new role will see him lead Brinker’s global development strategy, delivering the value promised to the industry by its platelet barrier technology and micro-platelet plasma. – TradeArabia News Service
