Chief Operating Officer
As Chief Operating Officer at Well-Safe Solutions, Matt leads on all operational aspects – including our plug and abandonment assets, well engineering, project delivery, logistics and HSE functions.
Having been at Well-Safe Solutions since the foundation of the company, Matt has seen Well-Safe move from start-up to the leading Tier 1 well decommissioning company it is today, having overseen the acquisition of our assets, our first contracts and the safe and successful delivery of the company’s initial projects.
With Well-Safe now an established P&A specialist, Matt works with clients, stakeholders and regulators to ensure the decommissioning industry can deliver upon the technical challenges and obligations required of the global energy sector.
Matt joined Well-Safe Solutions from ConocoPhillips UK, where he led well engineering and operations for 14 years across all North Sea assets. During his time at ConocoPhillips, Matt specifically led the development of the well decommissioning team, who set industry-leading benchmarks for Southern North Sea projects.
Matt has a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Heriot-Watt University and is a Chartered Engineer with the IMechE. Matt was co-chair of the Offshore Energies UK Well Decommissioning workgroup and led the 2017 update to the organisation’s Well Decommissioning Guidelines (Rev 6) at the forefront of well decommissioning in the UK North Sea.
