Catherine De Martino
Catherine has been working in the oil industry for 18 years, having left her native Australia in 1996 to join Shell in The Netherlands. Since then, she has worked for a range of companies and in a variety of locations, including Lowestoft, Aberdeen, Houston and Ho Chi Minh City. She currently calls Aberdeen home. After spending the early years of her career in process engineering and field development work, Catherine moved into drilling in 2006, initially working offshore for Talisman as a Night Drilling Engineer. Since then, she has worked as Night Drilling Supervisor for EnQuest and moved to BP in 2013. Since joining BP, she has worked deepwater Brazil and is presently transferring to deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
In her time off, Catherine enjoys relaxing at home, working out and travelling to catch up with family and friends. The prize money will be spent on retail therapy on an upcoming business trip to Houston – quite possibly before she even manages to board the plane in Heathrow!
