Dutch pipeline company Airborne Oil & Gas said it appointed its first vice president for Asia and Middle East to drive growth across the two regions.
Fabienne Ellington joins the Netherlands-headquartered company to be based in Kuala Lumpur following 17 years working in South East Asia.
She brings more than two decades of oil and gas industry experience to the company with specialist knowledge of subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines. Prior to joining Airborne Oil & Gas, her previous roles saw her overseeing subsea construction projects and tenders for Subsea 7, and as Asia’s regional manager for subsea installation at Fugro.
“Airborne Oil & Gas has a strong reputation in the industry for its reliable, knowledgeable and committed team,” said Ellington. “I’m confident that together we can support potential clients in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions to realise the true potential TCP offers including its corrosion resistance, high durability and ease of installation.”
“The company also has an impressive track record and is leading the development and production of TCP around the world. I’m very pleased to be joining at this pivotal stage in the company’s growth.”
Airborne Oil & Gas CEO, Oliver Kassam said: “The Asia Pacific region is a key area of growth opportunity for our company, following on from the region’s first hydrocarbon TCP non-metallic crude oil flowline installed by Petronas Carigali. Fabienne’s extensive industry experience and specific knowledge of the Asia Pacific region will enable us to build beyond this experience and work with both our existing clients and new clients.”
The company produces pipeline solutions such as the corrosion resistant Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP), which is utilised for jumpers, spools, flowlines and risers.
