HOUSTON, Feb. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Citing the company's leadership in risk management, Ajay Shah, Business Director for ARMS™ (Audubon Risk Management Solutions), announced that Audubon Engineering has obtained its first international contract from Audubon's new Bogota office with Shell Exploration & Production (SEPCO).
Audubon Engineering's Edmond Baruque, HSE Specialist, heads the effort and will be seconded by SEPCO to Ecopetrol, the largest and primary petroleum company in Colombia. "This is our first operation in Colombia," noted Baruque, "and it will help us in our efforts to further develop the office in Bogota, as well as establishing relationships with essential personnel of this key client."
The contract involves Baruque's working onsite at Los Lanos with Ecopetrol and SEPCO to help deliver a safe and incident-free drilling campaign and to ensure that it meets Shell's and Ecopetrol's strict HSE policies and procedures.
"While Audubon Engineering's ARMS Unit did get the business, it was mostly due to Baruque's efforts in leading the project team's efforts," stated Shah. "Pablo Arango (Director of South American Business Development) and Jaime Cifuentes (Country Manager - Colombia) were also extremely helpful. And, of course, Ragu Nagarajan (Business Development Intelligence) was a key driver in getting this contract with much behind-the-scenes work," Ajay concluded.
