GEODynamics’ Aberdeen-based eastern hemisphere operation has appointed Raymond Ross as Technical CGI Director.
GEODynamics is a researcher, developer, and manufacturer of engineered solutions for global perforating, downhole completions, intervention and wireline solutions.
Raymond’s 25-year oil and gas career includes roles at Paradigm Group, Weatherford, Petrowell, Well Dynamics and Halliburton.
His new role will entail the creation of computer-generated imagery to portray how GEODynamics’ technology and services work in a downhole environment to the benefit of customers. In one of his first assignments, Raymond produced animations and graphics which will be exhibited at GEODynamics’ SPE – Offshore Europe stand in Aberdeen from September 5th – 8th.
Chris Chalker, Vice-President Eastern Hemisphere and Managing Director of GEODynamics (U.K.) said: “We’re delighted to add Raymond to our team. His industry experience and knowledge of animating and articulating the advantages of our technology is a huge benefit to our customers.
“We have made great progress since launching the Aberdeen office at the start of the year. We have introduced the Eclipse™ perforating gun system, which is a single-string, high shot density casing removal system for well abandonment. This system removes 10% of 9 5/8” casing per foot, greatly enhancing perf and wash operations. In its first North Sea deployment wash time was reduced by 50%, significantly reducing costs and improving efficiencies for the client. These are the type of improvements our customers want and the plug and abandonment industry needs.”
Raymond Ross said: “I look forward to supporting the sales and marketing efforts of GEODynamics. Oil tools and oil wells are complex, making it difficult to visualise the science and activity occurring several thousand feet below the surface. Digital animations are a powerful tool in depicting the functionality of our technology. As Technical CGI Director, I enjoy providing viewers the opportunity to see these tools in a virtual environment so operators understand what is occurring in their well.”
