Stena Drilling Limited today announced that the company has appointed Dillan Perras as Wells Manager – and Director of Stena Wells. The first member of the new start-up - leading the company to provide fully managed well construction and decommissioning.

Dillan Perras joins Stena Drilling after 16 years with Talisman / Repsol / Repsol Sinopec Resources where most recently he held the role of Drilling & Completions Manager.

Mr Perras has over 20 years of experience in the sector leading teams in the North Sea, Peru and Canada before returning to the North Sea in 2016. Dillan has led teams delivering all aspects of well operations from engineering and planning through to intervention, drilling, completions and decommissioning. Having delivered projects in the deep jungle to the deep sea he is well placed to lead the new company forward.

As director of Stena Wells, Mr Perras will lead the new company on its way to delivering fully managed well construction and decommissioning campaigns on behalf of the operator community. Responsibilities include creating technical and commercial solutions, delivering predictable outcomes, and maintaining talent in a tight market. Strategic planning and multi-operator campaigns are high on the priority list – collaborating across the industry to deliver cost-effective solutions.

Perras states “Stena Wells is an extremely exciting prospect bringing something new to the market” –he also says “Stena Wells will be the only company offering a fully managed service for well construction in the North Sea and the second to provide full MODU well decommissioning”.

Stena Wells will work to deliver tier 1 integrated construction and decommissioning services and provide a complete cohesive package using Stena Drilling’s MODU fleet. In times when operators are resource constrained Stena Wells aims to offer safe and predictable alternatives to the industry.

Erik Ronsberg – CEO of Stena Drilling, said “The addition of Mr Perras and his team to Stena Drilling provides a significant boost to our offerings both in Stena Drilling and Stena Wells.” Adding “Our current customers can leverage the teams’ technical capabilities in delivering wells around the globe – while Stena Wells offers a complete service in both Well Construction and Decommissioning”.

The collaboration between Stena Drilling and Stena Wells creates an offering where customers receive not only the excellent services of a world-renowned drilling unit provider, but the well delivery experience of a world class engineering and execution team.

Mr Perras, a chartered engineer with IMechE, is currently a member of the Offshore Energy UK Well Decommissioning Group – co-leading the 2018 Well Decommissioning Guidelines Rev 6 – and a key member of the team delivering the current Rev 7 update.
