Ryan McPherson joins the company from the Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF), where he has been Regional Director for the Middle East and Asia Pacific based in Abu Dhabi since 2011.

“Having worked in the region for the last three years in a role that focused on the technology gaps for investment, I have a great understanding of the need for the solutions that ProSep offers and believe that there will be a growing demand, particularly as operators strive to eliminate water waste. I look forward to increasing awareness of the difference that ProSep can make to operations here,” said McPherson.

ProSep has also signed a lease on a new office space in Abu Dhabi in the Al Muroor area as it prepares to deliver more projects in the region.

This company secured a contract with Saudi Aramco in the Arab Gulf Region earlier this year for the supply of its patented ProSalt wash water injection and mixing system.  This followed a trial by the operator which delivered dramatic results including a 40 per cent reduction in the wash-water consumption rate, from 50 gallons per minute to 30, saving more than 10 million gallons of wash water per year in one facility alone and a 60 per cent reduction in oil-in-water content from the de-salter.

Neil Poxon, CEO of ProSep welcomed McPherson to the team and said: “The potential for ProSep technologies in the Middle East is significant as they are designed to address the myriad of challenges operators face in treating oil, gas and water. Ryan’s appointment will help to drive our business forward and promote the bespoke approach we take to solving complex production issues.”

McPherson was instrumental in launching ITF’s Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) cluster in 2012 to help establish a vision for collaborative oil and gas technology research and development for ITF members in the region. He was also been a panel speaker at ADIPEC in 2012 and 2013 and is a committee member of the SPE Applied Technology Workshop ‘Accelerating Technology Deployment’ in Abu Dhabi.
