2H Offshore, an Acteon company, has appointed Paul Hopkins as principal engineer, to develop 2H Offshore’s growing client base in Norway.
Hopkins worked for 2H Offshore from 2001 - 2006 on a diverse range of riser projects, including Exxon’s Kizomba A and B developments and BP’s Shah Deniz project. Hopkins then worked for two subsea engineering contractors, developing experience in concept selection and detailed design, with a strong focus on risers, subsea pipelines and structures.
Alex Rimmer, director of 2H Offshore’s London office, said, “Paul is a strong addition to the 2H team, with a wealth of offshore experience and problem solving skills. He will take primary responsibility for 2H’s clients in Norway to further strengthen our presence and our client support capabilities in the region. Additionally, Paul will use his extensive technical expertise to support the UK engineering team in executing exciting and technically challenging riser and conductor engineering projects, which were recently awarded to 2H in Norway and beyond.”
Hopkins commented, “I am delighted to return to 2H, and I look forward to the many opportunities ahead to further grow 2H Offshore’s business in Norway.”
Hopkins will meet existing and prospective clients at ONS 2014 in Stavanger, Norway, 25 - 28 August. Additional representatives from 2H Offshore at ONS will include Alex Rimmer, director, Cary Griffin, Aberdeen technical manager, and Jeremy Cowell, business development manager.
