Scott Mitchell, global business development manager at Omega Completion Technology, has been appointed the new chair of The Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association’s European Chapter (ICoTA).
Scott, who takes up his appointment this month, has served on the organisation’s committee for two years. Elliot Kinch, business development manager for Interwell UK, has been appointed co-chair and will succeed Scott as chair in 2016.
With more than two decades of industry experience, Scott has a detailed knowledge and understanding of all aspects of well services and intervention operations. Prior to joining Omega, he was sales and marketing director at Oilenco and previously worked at Expro Group, Weatherford, Wireline Engineering and Peak Well Systems.
“I’m delighted to take on this role,” said Scott.
“Having been involved with ICoTA for a number of years I strongly believe that it is a very valuable forum for sharing knowledge which will benefit everyone who works in our industry. In the current operating climate I will be particularly interested in looking at how we can generate new ideas for cost-reduction and time-savings, particularly in the subsea sector.
“ICoTA has a real role to play in helping companies integrate by facilitating alignment and working together. To support this I will be encouraging greater operator involvement, partly through ICoTA’s ambassador scheme, but also by identifying issues, particularly in relation to well integrity, which are most important to operators.”
ICoTA runs a series of events and activities throughout the year for members including monthly Lunch & Learns. Among the highlights this year will be a well intervention seminar in Stavanger in June and the ICoTA European Chapter Innovation Award which will be presented at the SPE ICoTA 21st European Well Intervention Conference in Aberdeen in November.
