Well-Safe Solutions has appointed Alexa Duncan as the company’s first Energy Transition Manager as it looks to add carbon capture and storage (CCUS) and geothermal project capabilities to its offering.
Duncan has more than a decade and a half of experience under her belt in project management and well engineering for international operators, and will play a pivotal role in the delivery of these energy transition business streams.
Duncan said, “Well-Safe Solutions is at the forefront of the well plug and abandonment industry and working closely with clients to reduce their carbon footprint. With the North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA) estimating CO2 storage capacity of 78 billion tonnes on the UK continental shelf alone, there is a clear opportunity for Well-Safe Solutions to apply its considerable expertise when assisting our clients on the journey to net zero carbon emission.
“In addition, extensive growth is also predicted within the geothermal market. I’m passionate about the energy transition and very much looking forward to collaborating with our highly experienced well engineering and subsurface teams on upcoming projects internationally.”
James Richards, Well Abandonment Director at Well-Safe Solutions, added, “Recruiting a professional of Alexa’s calibre to our team is a clear endorsement of our ambition n in this sector. Our own market research and client feedback indicates an opportunity for us to apply the lessons and collaborative working practices we deliver in well plug and abandonment to these fields.”
