Norwich, UK, 10th September 2019: Aquaterra Energy, a leader in global offshore engineering solutions, has appointed Rob Gill to fuel the continued success of its modular Sea Swift platform.
Gill joins the company as Platforms Business Development Director and will focus on expanding Sea Swift’s presence across West Africa, South East Asia and Latin America. He brings over 30 years of industry experience, having worked in both technical and commercial roles with the likes of Advisian, INEOS and Petrofac, as well as founding and growing several entrepreneurial ventures.
Gill comments: “I’m delighted to join a company that is at the forefront of engineering excellence, developing bespoke solutions for many of the sector’s complex projects. Operators are increasingly reviewing shallow water developments with quicker payback periods, and Sea Swift is an ideal solution to help them develop these economically and reduce time to first oil.”
The Sea Swift platform is a modular design that can be engineered to bespoke specifications. A cost-effective alternative to traditional jacket structures and subsea wells in shallow waters, it offers operators a scalable solution that can be quickly delivered and easily assembled, reducing the total cost of ownership.
James Larnder, Managing Director of Aquaterra Energy, adds: “Rob’s varied background and deep sector knowledge means he’s uniquely positioned to provide valuable insight and guidance to our customers. From the Caribbean to West Africa, we’ve already secured significant wins for the Sea Swift platform and with Rob at the helm we hope to capitalise on new market opportunities across the globe.”
