The IADC Executive Committee has confirmed the nominations of three new members to the Well Control Institute (WCI) Board of Directors. Dr Tom Burke, President and CEO of Rowan Companies, has taken the place of David Williams, who recently retired from Noble Drilling. Mike Holcomb, President of Patterson-UTI Drilling, has replaced John Lindsay of Helmerich & Payne. Thom Roller, Director of Worldwide Drilling for Apache, has taken the place of Roger Jenkins of Murphy. Both Mr Lindsay’s and Mr Jenkins’ terms on the Board had expired.
“David, John and Roger were Charter members of the Board and, therefore, instrumental in the initial establishment of the Well Control Institute,” WCI Board Chairman Lyndol Dew said. “We are grateful for their years of service and, at the same time, looking forward to working with the new members of the Board.”
