Well-Safe Solutions appoints new head of strategy

17 November 2021

Aberdeen’s well plug and abandonment specialists Well-Safe Solutions has appointed Chris Hay as its director of strategy and business development, it said November 17.

The appointment comes during a period of sustained expansion as decommissioning gathers momentum. This year, Well-Safe Solutions has added 77 employees and secured two major contract wins for the Well-Safe Guardian. It is set to decommission dozens of wells in the Buchan, Hannay, Banff and Kyle fields on the UKCS in 2022.

Hay has worked for over 16 years in the integrated well abandonment and offshore drilling sectors and was managing the commercial operations at the UK office of a leading global drilling contractor immediately before his move to Well-Safe. Before that, he held senior leadership roles across the North Sea, West Africa and Europe for Tier 1 international service companies.

Commenting on his new role, Chris said: “Well-Safe Solutions occupies a unique position in the exciting decommissioning market, as it owns and operates two world-class, dedicated plug and abandonment (P&A) rigs with highly experienced crews.

“Through organic growth, Well-Safe Solutions continues to secure new contracts through its innovative P&A Club operating model. I’m thrilled to be joining the organisation at a time of considerable progress, and I look forward to further developing a robust business development strategy with the team.”
