When did you join Team DeltaTek?  

16th of September 2019 


Before joining DeltaTek, tell us a little about what you’ve been up to?  

I began my career as an apprentice Electro-Mechanical Maintenance Technician at Baker Hughes carrying out assembly, maintenance and overhaul of MWD/LWD directional drilling equipment. I completed a 4-year modern apprenticeship during this time and gained an HNC in Mechanical Engineering.  

After 6 years I left and decided to take a year out to go travelling. Travelling around New Zealand in a campervan for 4 months before working for 3 months. I carried on travelling, visiting countries like Fiji, Australia, the PhilippinesHong Kong and Thailand. I finished it all off with a month-long motorbike trip in Vietnam from south to north.  

After returning home from travelling I wanted to get my teeth sunk into a new challenge and joined the team at DeltaTek 


What does your job entail?  

My role is quite diverse, from supervising SeaCure® and QuikCure® deployment activities in the UK, Norway and Eastern Mediterranean, to providing operational, engineering & technical support during the deployments of the technologies at the client well sites – I’m involved in quite a lot!

I strive to ensure continuous improvement to the maintenance workflow in the workshop by creating maintenance procedures, checklists and instilling best practices to uphold reliability and quality.


Have there been any highlights since joining DeltaTek? What do you enjoy about working here?  

It has been refreshing joining such an enthusiastic close-knit team that all share the same passion to deliver reliable, cost-saving products that greatly benefit the industry.  

The employees we have here work excellently as a team and each and every one has incredible knowledge, experience and skills to bring to the table.  


Is there anything that you’ve learned about the toolstechnology or company that has surprised you?  

Each day I learn more about how SeaCure® and QuikCure® have benefitted operators by Reducing risk and leading to Ultimate Cement Placement in various sections of the well.

DeltaTek’s product range is exceedingly robust, reliable and effective. I have been proactive through a lot of the ArticuLock® development stage and learned a lot during this time, so it’s exciting to see this product utilised in the field.
