Xodus expands decom capabilities with addition of well decommissioning manager


ABERDEEN -- International energy consultancy Xodus Group has expanded its decommissioning offering with the appointment of its first well decommissioning manager.

Gavin Bell

Gavin Bell will be responsible for developing and delivering Xodus’ new well decommissioning service that had previously been outsourced to external contractors. The appointment follows a successful year for Xodus’ decommissioning division, which secured several new clients and won more than £2 million of work.

Bell is a chartered mechanical engineer with more than 25 years of experience in the international oil and gas industry. He joins from Repsol Sinopec Resources UK, where he led a number of P&A projects through early planning phases, including rig option selection and the development of P&A cost models. Previously, he worked for DONG Energy in Denmark and spent 20 years working with well service contractors, Halliburton and Baker Hughes INTEQ. Before joining the oil industry, he completed training in marine engineering and industrial engineering.

Xodus’ decom division has undertaken more than 100 decommissioning projects globally, ranging from M&A due diligence and commercial advice, to training and detailed planning and approvals for decom execution.
