Seadrill has made a double change to its senior management team with Reid Warriner and Leif Neilson taking up the roles of chief operating officer and chief technology officer respectively.
Mr Warriner will oversee daily operational delivery across the harsh environment, jack-up and floater operating units.
Mr Nelson will focus on the future development of the Bermuda-headquartered company’s fleet, continuing work on its innovation pipeline with the adoption of new technologies.
The aim is to deliver more efficient and safer operational capabilities, whilst also reducing the environmental impact.
Stuart Jackson, chief executive at Seadrill, commented: “As Seadrill navigates a difficult market, we will seek ways to differentiate our capabilities, not just through operational efficiency but also with respect to the application of technology. I am delighted that Reid and Leif are taking on these roles, both focused very much on delivering for our customers – today and tomorrow.”
