Air and steam equipment rental specialist Airpac Bukom Oilfield Services is pleased to announce the appointment of director for Australia Graham Pemberton. Graham will initially be working alongside Chris Wootton who retires as director Asia Pacific in March of this year. In his new role, Graham is keen to build upon the strong work already accomplished by Chris and the Airpac Bukom team in Australia.
Graham has a wealth of experience both in the industry as well as within the region. He joins from Atlas Copco Rental, with whom he was working in Western Australia as a business manager, prior to which he spent two years with Coates Offshore as regional director for Asia Pacific. Before immigrating to Australia from the UK in 1999, Graham worked with Vp plc for almost twenty years in a number of roles, the last of which saw him heading up the group’s successful Groundforce division.
Graham states: "Airpac Bukom has clearly established itself as the leading provider of specialist oil and gas related rental equipment and support services within the southern hemisphere. The purpose-built latest-technology equipment packages supported by our team of highly trained engineers and operators enables us to provide a safe, efficient and highly cost-effective solution to our customers."
Airpac Bukom managing director Haydn Davies says: "Graham joins the business at an exciting stage of its development in Australia. Our track record of delivering high-quality services across the country to high-profile clients on LNG, pipeline and well-testing projects means we are well placed to take advantage of the continuing investment in Australia’s oil and gas infrastructure. Graham’s knowledge and experience will add to the qualities of a well-established team as we seek to build on our success in coming years."
A second regional appointment sees Guy Lodge assume the role of commercial director for Australia, a thoroughly deserved promotion. His new role will see him dedicated to commercial development across existing and new markets both in terms of application and geography.
Airpac Bukom Oilfield Services provides global air and steam rental solutions to a wide variety of markets and applications. These include LNG, pipeline dewatering and drying, well testing, fabric maintenance, product transfer, underbalanced drilling (UBD) and cuttings movement.
