We are really pleased to welcome him to the team – having someone with Ben’s experience will be a great asset to the company.”
As well as his specific GI credentials, Ben is also an active member of the British Drilling Association (BDA), the UK Trade Association committed to improving standards in health and safety and quality of workmanship for the Drilling Industry. He has also taken responsibility for technical skills development and H&S groups in previous roles, which make him the perfect candidate to represent Central Alliance on the BDA’s Technical and Standards Sub-committee.
