Mr Abbott, who will be based in Tendeka’s Aberdeen headquarters, said: “I’m excited to be joining Tendeka and taking on the role of driving the company’s technology strategy. I have always been an admirer of Tendeka’s smart solutions for complex reservoir and production challenges so I’m looking forward to working closely with this talented team and creating solutions that make a real difference for the sector.”

He has significant expertise specific to reservoir-centric production and completion optimisation and has been responsible for multiple technical industry firsts with supporting technology patents and industry recognised publications.
