EXCEED MPR Launches Rig Integration Service, Appoints RI Specialist

EXCEED MPR, part of the Aberdeen-headquartered EXCEED Group, has announced the launch of a specialist Rig Integration service, in tandem with the appointment of industry specialist Jon Goodenough as Rig Integration Manager.

Founded in 2016, the Lowestoft-based Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) experts have a reputation for providing a wide range of MPD services, from feasibility studies and project management, to performance management and delivery assurance. The addition of a comprehensive Rig Integration service completes the spectrum of MPD services available, allowing the company to provide its UK and international clients with a turnkey service.

Jon brings over 25 years’ industry experience to the establishment of EXCEED MPR’s Rig Integration service, 10 of which have been focused upon managed pressure drilling projects.

His detailed knowledge of MPD systems, drilling rigs and oilfield equipment have seen him responsible for all aspects of surface stack, above tension ring and deepwater rig integration projects for some of the industry’s largest international service companies, including Halliburton and Weatherford.

James Parr, Head of EXCEED MPR commented: “Safe and efficient rig integration is a critical component of any successful Managed Pressure Drilling project; the challenges inherent in deploying MPD on any rig require expert guidance and experience.

“Jon is a leader in this field and his international track record augments the existing capabilities of the EXCEED MPD team. With Jon at the helm of this new division, we look forward to offering a world class Rig Integration service to our international client base.”

Jon added: “I’m delighted to join EXCEED MPR. With a combined MPD experience of over 50 years, the team is highly regarded across the industry for adding value whilst ensuring the highest levels of performance are achieved. I look forward to adding my specific Rig Integration knowledge to the company’s already impressive skillset and in doing so, providing a complete project lifecycle service.”
