INDEPENDENT global completions service company Tendeka has appointed a new VP for North & South America as the company looks to introduce its broad range of services and technologies into new markets.
Jim McGowin has more than 30 years’ experience in sales, marketing and operations management of oilfield wellbore construction, completion systems and services and enhanced oil recovery techniques.
Mr McGowin joins Tendeka from Packers Plus Energy Services, where he was responsible for building and managing its US sales team. He was previously sales director in Houston for Baker Hughes and has also worked for TAM International.
Mr McGowin, who will be based in Tendeka’s Houston office, said: “I look forward to leading the NSA team and working with all of many resources at Tendeka to introduce the benefits of improved reservoir management and enhanced recovery through our impressive suite of technologies including PulseEight, Filtrex and our line of production enhancement fluids.
“We plan to build on the successes we have had over the past few years to increase our customer base and grow our business into new markets in the western hemisphere.”
In November, Tendeka launched ShaleModifier, a new oil-based polymer treatment covalently which bonds to the rock surface to allow enhanced oil flowback from the nanonetwork resulting in improved return on investment.
The launch of ShaleModifier, followed the introduction of the MajiFrac Solution, a new portfolio of applications which aims to reduce water use and pumping time during completion operations in unconventional shale plays in the USA.
Mr McGowin has BSc degree in petroleum engineering from Mississippi State University as well as an undergraduate study in mineral engineering from the University of Alabama. He is also a long-standing member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
