Thailand-based offshore drilling firm Mermaid Maritime has appointed a new regional director.
Mermaid said UK national Graham McKnockiter would be responsible for managing the group’s subsea services business in the Middle East.
Mermaid said the appointment would help streamline the business unit.
Mr McKnockiter, 54, previously worked as the division’s asset management director.
Before joining Mermaid in 2013, he held the role of head of operations at Seadrill.
