EnerMech appoints Middle East and Caspian regional director

Growth targeted across Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kazakhstan and Qatar in 2021


EnerMech has appointed Paul Cockerill as its regional director for the Middle East and Caspian as it seeks to further grow its foothold across the upstream, downstream and petrochemical sectors in 2021. 

The integrated solutions specialist has been established in the UAE since 2009 and currently has over 300 people in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Abu Dhabi. 

Mr Cokerill brings a wealth of experience in building oil and gas businesses over 15 years in the Middle East in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, most recently as Middle East and Caspian director for Cape RB Hilton. He also held senior roles with Shoaibi Group as well as other multi-national service companies, previously spending over a decade in Africa. 

EnerMech is working with a number of NOCs and IOCs delivering mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and integrity services to support greenfield projects along with operations and maintenance of brownfield onshore and offshore assets. It also has an established training centre in the region, supporting the upskilling of the workforce to the highest quality standards.  

Mr Cockerill said: “It has been a challenging year for the industry with the impacts of COVID-19, however we are seeing positive signs of revitalised projects and anticipating growth opportunities in the year ahead. With large petrochemical infrastructure projects being sanctioned along with new rigs and refineries in the planning, there is a lot of value that EnerMech can bring through our trusted relationships with clients. EnerMech has a reputation for excellence and I’m looking forward to working with the team here to further expand our reach across all territories.” 

Mr Cockerill replaces Steve Jones who is relocating to the UK to take up the role of southern general manager with the company. 

EnerMech CEO Christian Brown said: “Paul brings heavyweight experience to our already established offering in the Middle East and Caspian region. His appointment supports our strategy to further embed our upstream energy and infrastructure offering and robustly push growth in the downstream and petrochemical sectors, delivering increased efficiencies and value for our growing customer base. 

“2020 has been a transformative year for EnerMech as we’ve strengthened our leadership across the business and invested in smart operations and world-leading data solutions. The robust backing of our shareholder gives a clear mandate for sustainable growth in the year ahead. Despite travel restrictions, we have delivered significant contracts across sectors and we are looking ahead to 2021 with optimism.”
