RIMOUSKI -- Pétrolia has announced that Gildas Collin will be joining the company as head of operations on October 1, 2013. The company said that the appointment underscores its strategy to pursue development of the Haldimand oil field in Gaspé, and to implement a broad exploration program to assess the potential for oil production on Anticosti Island.
Collin has more than 20 years of experience in oil and gas. Before coming to Pétrolia, Collin served as chief petroleum engineer, since 2011, at the headquarters of Perenco, an independent oil and gas company based in London.
In this new role, Collin will oversee all of Pétrolia’s field operations. Although he will be based in Quebec City, he will make regular site visits to ensure compliance with operational and safety requirements.
