Enteq Upstream PLC (Enteq), a provider of systems and components for Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and directional drilling, has appointed Andrew Bridges as head of engineering, announced Enteq CEO, Martin Perry.
Initially based in Enteq’s West London, UK, office but with a global remit, this new position will support Henry More, the founder of XXT, which was acquired by Enteq in May 2011. Bridges’ appointment further bolsters the company’s world class engineering team. Bridges has significant technical, managerial and leadership skills, which will ensure delivery of Enteq’s development programs and grow the company’s research and development capabilities and capacity. Enteq is evolving a new generation of Measurement and Logging while Drilling (MWD / LWD) equipment suitable for North American and global operations in high temperature and high endurance environments.
Bridges, an engineering graduate from Cambridge University in England, brings many years of downhole tool design experience in MWD / LWD, along with other closely related engineering competencies. Bridges’ recent positions include technical director at Hunter Well Sciences and chief engineer at GE Oilfield Technologies.
“We are pleased to have Andrew join our team and look forward to the vast skill-set he brings, which will undoubtedly accelerate our engineering projects,” said Perry. “We pride ourselves at Enteq on hiring individuals who understand customer needs and possess the ability to deliver industry leading technical solutions.”
