Oil and gas technology group Plexus Holdings has appointed a president for North America as it seeks to grow its business on the other side of the Atlantic.
Chief executive and founder Ben van Bilderbeek said Lawrence Rucinski, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the subsea sector, “will be invaluable to us following the launch of our new Python subsea wellhead and look to secure commercial opportunities for this new wellhead standard over the coming years”.
Aberdeen-based Plexus launched its Python system last month in a move that business minister Fergus Ewing said would “increase the safety and reliability” of clients’ operations.
“The Python subsea wellhead has been developed as part of an industry-wide project supported by leading oil and gas operators including Shell, Total, Maersk, BG, Tullow and Wintershall to name a few,” said van Bilderbeek.
“We believe our product will be the safest, most technically advanced and cost-efficient product on the market, and Lawrence clearly recognises its potential and superior technical and safety features.”
