Harkand appoints General Manager for AfricaCompany News // October 1, 2015
Harkand has united its African presence under the leadership of Doug Fieldgate as Africa General Manager, who has 23 years of experience in the African oil and gas market, primarily focused on West Africa.
He will be based in the company's North America and Africa operations headquarters in Houston and will lead Harkand's continued expansion into the region, working closely with its consortium partners.
The assignment of a general manager for Africa follows Harkand’s successes in the region including the recent contract award by Technip in Ghana providing survey services and the one year contract for a major oil and gas operator to deliver ROV, project management, engineering and technical support services in Nigeria.
Chief executive officer John Reed said: “Our strategic expansion into Africa will strengthen our ability to respond to the needs of our clients. Doug’s in-depth knowledge of the region and our successful collaboration with our local partners will ensure we achieve this goal in the various countries with a coordinated resilience.”
