Xodus Group said it appointed its first general manager in Egypt as the company aims to build on its track record in the country and target upcoming new contracts.
Salah Farid Tantawy joins Xodus from PICO Petroleum Integrated Services where he was most recently project general manager for the Amal-C platform installation in the Gulf of Suez.
He has 37 years’ experience working in oil & gas, having started his career as a project engineer. Before moving to PICO, he was chairman assistant (VP) for projects with Gulf of Suez petroleum (GUPCO) – BP’s JV for oil production in Egypt.
Tantawy said: “Xodus has gained a strong reputation within the country over the last few years so I know I am joining a very experienced team with capabilities throughout the lifecycle of an asset. I hope my experience in managing multi-million-dollar projects and my knowledge of the Egyptian oil and gas sector will help in attracting new business as well as reinforcing already established partnerships.”
