Welcome to the team Eoin!
What attracted you to this role at Deep Casing Tools?
It was the right move at the right time for my career. I really enjoy working in a small team within a technology driven business where better collaboration, motivation and of course innovation can take place.
Deep Casing Tools are at a crucial point in their development where their suite of technologies is on the cusp of reaching new levels. I’m excited to be a part of this, the development of downhole solutions in new and existing markets has been a key driver throughout my career. I feel this drive can continue at Deep Casing Tools where I can provide simple, sustainable innovations to operators around the globe no matter where they are in their well life cycle.
How will your experience drive tool sales at Deep Casing Tools?
For 11 years I have been involved with businesses who help clients get their completions to target depth. Within this time, I have successfully positioned myself as a trusted advisor to many drilling and completion engineers through the provision of reliable and innovative technology. I hope that I can continue this trend at Deep Casing Tools, using the DCT portfolio and my experience to build relationships with new, valued clients.
Name your top three career highlights?
1 – Every salesperson remembers their first PO. For me this was way back in 2007 when I secured an order for casing wear protectors for a major Danish operator.
2 – As a collective I have taken great satisfaction in the number of clients I have assisted over the years, providing the solutions needed to get their completions to target depth. This has involved many challenging projects along the way including a four well campaign for a super-major UK operator. There were severe concerns about whether the completions run would reach target depth on this project. However, through careful consultation and consideration, the correct combination of tools was recommended. As a result, target depth was reached successfully on each occasion and 100% of the possible production interval was realised. I love getting involved with projects early on to provide a considered technical solution that works time and time again. I feel we are fantastically positioned at Deep Casing Tools to enhance this idea.
3 – Landing my new role at Deep Casing Tools. For me this is a fantastic career advancement, and I am extremely grateful for the fantastic opportunity that I have managed to earn.

An ever-changing technology landscape provides an ongoing challenge within the oil and gas industry. As new trends emerge, innovative solutions need to adapt to these changes. Deep Casing Tools do exactly that, another reason why I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to work for the team.
