Colin Hossack

Technical Specialist in Liners & Well Construction Cementing Products

Colin left school and served an apprenticeship as a motor vehicle technician before joining the oil industry in 1986. His first position was as a maintenance technician with Weatherford UK.

Colins' first position was as a maintenance technician with Weatherford UK. He progressed within Weatherford to working as part of an offshore casing crew, crew chief and senior crew chief before I was offered the opportunity to train as a Liner Hanger Engineer as part of a Weatherford / Nodeco JV in Oman where I spent 2 years working as base supervisor on the Lekhwair Turnkey Drilling project where we ran over 190 Liners and Completions.

On returning to the UK, Colin held various positions within Weatherford from Offshore Operations Manager, Sales Executive for all PL’s before then deciding to concentrate on Well Construction Cementing Products. This decision led to him working worldwide from the Asia Pacific, Europe, Caspian, West Africa and Russia when he was the Region PL Manager.

Colin then moved to BlackHawk as European Manager before moving to the USA, where he worked in Texas and Pennsylvania before returning to the UK. Colin then had spells back with Weatherford and with FORUM Energy Technologies in Cementing Products, latterly as the Global Technical Advisor, Completions PL with Weatherford for the BP Global Account.
