Peritus Strengthens Field Development Team
Advanced subsea and floating systems engineering experts, Peritus International, today announced the latest addition to their newly formed Field Development business with the appointment of Steve Sinclair to the position of Principal Technical Consultant – Field Developments, Asia Pacific.
Mr Sinclair brings more than 20 years experience in production facilities, project, engineering and R&D management to the Peritus team having been involved in many world-class projects, both onshore and offshore, from technical feasibility reviews through to conceptual development, project budget preparation and sanction, detailed engineering, construction, commissioning, operation and brownfield modification.
“Steve’s appointment has further strengthened our already considerable field development capabilities”, said Peritus CEO, Steve Hindmarsh. “He has significant field development experience gained on some of the world’s most challenging and deep water oil and gas projects, and with his addition to the team I am confident that we have the capacity to successfully deliver industry leading field development services to clients around the world”.
In a career that has seen him take on roles in the UK, Singapore, Japan and Australia, Mr Sinclair has also amassed substantial Gas to Liquids (GTL) experience having held major responsibility for a prototype (and Australia’s only) gas to methanol plant as well as being involved in numerous major floating GTL and LNG studies. Additionally, he was responsible for all stages, from concept through commissioning, of BHP Billiton’s successful Stybarrow FPSO facility, Australia’s deepest water development to date.
Mr Sinclair’s appointment follows the recent launch of Peritus’ Field Development business line which targets early field feasibility, concept select and cost estimating for offshore oil and gas developments. Mr Sinclair will assume regional Australia-Asia responsibility for the new business, while responsibility for both the Field Development and the Floating Systems business lines will be that of Peritus’ Global Director Floating Systems and Field Development, Mr Thyl Kint.
