Schlumberger M/LWD Engineer/ Drilling Engineer & Tullow Drilling Engineer
Martin’s role at one&zero is primarily contract analysis and tender review and auditing, for DD, LWD, MWD and Well Engineering. His experience comes from a technical and sales background which was formed within the service provider and operator environments, and gives him a real insight into what clients need and what vendors offer. Martin is based in Norwich.
Beginning his oilfield career in mudlogging, he moved through the ranks as a Field Engineer with Schlumberger D&M, before being recognised for his technical ability and becoming a Schlumberger training school instructor. In this role, he was at the forefront of new technology and measurements, pioneered full cross segment training and managed classes for students from all over the world.
His next role as a Drilling Engineer in Aberdeen gave him exposure to multiple clients, drilling techniques, environments and methods, and he continued to teach as a NExT instructor. This was a core technical support role where well engineering and design were the everyday work.
After leaving Schlumberger, Martin joined Torus Insurance in London, working as an Account Engineer. The focus in this role was risk assessment, well control and well engineering risk modelling, giving him a real insight into the business aspects of well engineering. Before consulting with one&zero he moved to Tullow Oil as a Senior Drilling Engineer, project leading the Ghana TEN developments and being responsible for drilling and well construction input into the project from FEED to delivery.
