Petrofac has appointed a former director at Hess Corporation as senior vice president of engineering and operations.
Dave Blackburn will work out of the company’s office in Aberdeen and will form part of Petrofac’s Engineering and Production Services (EPS) leadership team.
He will be responsible for the business unit’s engineering and operations services across Europe.
Blackburn previously spent six years in a variety of engineering and project roles in the Gulf of Mexico and West Africa, most recently as asset director for Equatorial Guinea.
Walter Thain, managing director – West, Petrofac EPS, said: “I am very much looking forward to working alongside Dave. He brings operations, engineering and senior leadership experience to Petrofac. His extensive knowledge of working in the UKCS, the Gulf of Mexico and West Africa is directly aligned to the operating footprint of our EPS West business which will support and assure our ongoing delivery and future growth aspirations.”
