With more than 25 years’ oil and gas experience, Annabel is focused on driving business performance through the commercialisation of new technologies designed to deliver customer value and address significant industry challenges. She joined Well-SENSE from Tendeka where she held the position of Chief Technology Officer. During her time with Tendeka, she built an industry leading downhole technology portfolio to improve the performance of new and existing wells through a combination of monitoring, analysis and in-well control solutions.
Prior to this Annabel spent more than 14 years in technical completion and wireline intervention roles. She has worked across many global oil and gas regions, holds several patents, is the co-author of a number of SPE papers and graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Craig brings over twenty years of industry experience to Well-SENSE, having previously worked at GE Oil and Gas as Product Line Director for Wireline Products. Prior to this he held management roles at Sondex Wireline and Archer, with an early career carved out in the aviation and sonar industries.
During his time at GE Oil and Gas, Craig managed a portfolio of technologies designed to measure downhole well conditions via sensors and electro-mechanical intervention tools deployed on wireline cable. This experience significantly bolsters the company’s position in the commercialisation of its FiberLine Intervention (FLI) Technology.
Dan’s love of invention from a young age led him to pursue a career in engineering, which now spans over 20 years, eight of which he worked at Petroleum Engineering Services (PES) where he directed a world-class team designing intelligent wells. After PES was acquired by Halliburton, Dan jointly established Petrowell, where an inspiring company ethos resulted in pioneering solutions and the company eventually being purchased by Weatherford.
Dan’s ability to think outside the box has resulted in a number of world firsts and new technologies coming to market. Recognised as one of the best innovative thinkers in his peer group, he has over 50 granted patents and has won the Significant Contribution Award at the Offshore Achievement Awards in recognition of his influence on the industry.
