Xodus Makes New Appointment to Drive Growth
Aberdeen-headquartered Xodus Group appoints Phil Cooper as its corporate development director to support the continued growth of the company.

Aberdeen-headquartered international energy consultancy Xodus Group announced Wednesday that it has appointed Phil Cooper as its corporate development director “to support the continued growth of the company”.

Xodus outlined that the new role will see Cooper strengthen the Xodus leadership team as the business “enters a new phase of growth in the UK and beyond in response to increasing global demand for expert technical services across the energy industry”.

Cooper was most recently London general manager at Heerema Marine Contractors where he led a team of engineers engaged in heavy lift and subsea technical activities. Previously, he was the global technology director at INTECSEA and was responsible for defining and delivering its technology strategy.

“I am excited to be joining Xodus as the energy industry begins to turn the corner and rebuild after several difficult years. I have always admired the breadth and depth of expertise in Xodus, as well as their agility and entrepreneurial spirit,” Cooper said in a company statement.

“I look forward to working closely with my new colleagues around the world as Xodus continues to develop and grow,” he added.

Steve Swindell, managing director of Xodus, said, “through senior roles in both engineering and construction, Phil has gained an international reputation for his work in the industry. He has a unique blend of in-depth technical knowledge which stretches across many engineering disciplines”.

“We are in no doubt that his experience and expertise will help us build our reputation as a leading consultancy around the world as we target projects in new as well as existing markets,” he added.

Last month, Xodus revealed that it had strengthened its decommissioning team after securing more than $2.5 million (GBP 2 million) worth of work.

Xodus provides engineering and advisory services to clients in the oil and gas, LNG, renewables and utilities industries worldwide. The company’s shareholders are Subsea 7 (60 percent interest) and Chiyoda Corporation of Japan (40 percent interest).
