THREE60 Energy Group, an independent energy service company offering complete asset life cycle solutions, has made a series of key senior appointments to its well engineering group across the UK, Asia Pacific and North America as a result of sustained global growth.

The appointments include:

Before joining THREE60 Energy he held the role of Completions Engineering Manager at BP based in Azerbaijan, Trinidad and Tobago, and as Wells Advisor based in London, UK. Throughout his career, Edment has held a global remit having worked in key energy hubs across Europe, Asia and South America.

Based out of the group’s UK headquarters in Aberdeen, Laughton joins THREE60 Energy from Aker BP ASA where he held the role of Senior Completion Engineer based in Norway. There, he took a lead role in managing drilling campaigns from the concept phase to detailed design, and through to the planning and execution of projects. Prior to this he held several roles at Schlumberger and Tendeka delivering well completion solutions to the North Sea market.

Kousha Gohari as Senior Production Engineer who will lead operations across North America
Based in Texas, USA, Gohari spent over 10 years at Baker Hughes where he held a number of technical roles including production and reservoir engineering consultant. Subsequently he joined Weatherford as a senior reservoir engineer. During his career, Gohari has worked on major energy projects in the UK, Canada, USA and Middle East.

These three latest additions to the senior Wells team of the THREE60 Energy Group will be responsible for driving growth across these key regions.

THREE60 Energy Group CEO, Walter Thain, says, “It’s great to welcome Brian, Graeme and Kousha to the wider THREE60 team. They bring a wealth of industry experience and technical know-how to their new roles which strengthens an already strong team. We are experiencing significant growth across the geographies in which we operate, including the North Sea, Asia Pacific and North America, and these senior appointments further embeds our expertise across those important regions.”

“Our growing team of experienced and highly skilled drilling and well engineers, combined with our ability to provide a flexible service model at scale, means THREE60 Energy is ideally positioned to support operators as they look to embrace more efficient, safer and environmentally friendly approaches to accelerate production. I am confident that Brian, Graeme and Kousha will play an integral role in shaping our customer offering in-line with this need, as well as helping to take the group’s international growth strategy forward in 2021 and beyond,” continues Thain.
