Ben recently scored 100% in all 3 IWCF papers for the 2nd time!! An amazing personal achievement!
Ben started his career in the oil industry 22 years ago, working initially as a Survey Engineer and then as a Directional Drilling Operations Engineer. He joined Shell in 2001 working both offshore and onshore in Aberdeen, before transferring internationally in 2005 and working as a Drilling Supervisor in South Korea, Sakhalin and Egypt. In 2012 he moved to the single string ventures team working as a Senior Operations Engineer drilling deepwater exploration wells in French Guiana and the Gulf of Mexico. Ben is currently working in Nova Scotia, Canada, on a deepwater exploration campaign as Operations Manager.
While currently living in Halifax, Nova Scotia with his wife, Anna, Ben enjoys sailing, scuba diving and skiing in his spare time! As for the prize money, Ben has generously offered to donate the £250 to a local charity in Halifax.
Congratulations on an exceptional performance, Ben! We hope to see you again in 2 years.
