The Oil and Gas Institute welcomes Phil Hassard to the team as Manager of the drilling simulation (DART) capability. Phil joins RGU from BP, where he was program manager for well control and brings more than 28 years of experience as a senior oil & gas professional, with a proven track record of knowledge, and achievement in Drilling and Wells Operations. Phil has spent the last 15 years in learning and development leadership roles, expanding the learning experience gained utilising Drilling and Well Control Simulators, similar to the RGU DART Drilling and Well Control Simulator in Aberdeen.

Phil said: “I am delighted to be part of the RGU oil and gas institute at this challenging time for the industry and I am keen to expand the RGU DART Drilling and Well Control Simulator capabilities further for the oil and gas industry to take advantage of our technology, in improving their business performance whether that be in drilling or wells performance, or bring de-commissioning requirements into our Simulator to reduce costs for such projects.
