Wireline and well-intervention technology specialist Wireline Engineering has appointed the first engineering director in its 14-year history.
The Aberdeen company said Magnus Wardle would strengthen its engineering capability “at a time when we are increasingly focused on innovation and developing our unique technologies”.
It added: “We plan on investing significantly in the development of new products over the next few years as we continue to build our export markets.
Mr Wardle – an Aberdonian – rejoins the firm from Halliburton Energy Services, where he has been technology manager for five years and chief engineer before that. He held the role of design manager at Wireline before his move to Halliburton. As engineering director, he assumes responsibility for the design and development of all products supplied by the company.
Managing director Bill Petrie said: “It’s quite a coup . . . to have Magnus back in the team.
“His engineering knowledge and experience of product development is second to none and he brings the level of leadership required to move the company forward.”
Wireline develops original well-intervention technologies for the oil and gas industry worldwide and works with more than 200 customers in 60-plus countries.
