Reactive Downhole Tools accelerates growth by restructuring

, February 14, 2024

Reactive Downhole Tools, a global provider of high-performance well completion solutions, has announced a significant restructuring of its Senior Management Team to realign regional resources.
Under the leadership of CEO Mike Allen, Niall Urquhart has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer. Joining Reactive in 2015, Urquhart has overseen operations across the Middle East, one of the company’s most successful locations, since its entrance to the region. Urquhart draws on 16 years of industry experience and holds engineering degrees from both Strathclyde and Robert Gordon Universities, as well as currently working towards an MBA. 
Chris Barnes is appointed as Chief Technical Officer, responsible for driving the continued success of Reactive’s swellable downhole tools and the development of complimentary solutions. Already sitting on industry advisory bodies such as API, Barnes has worked with Reactive since its inception in 2012 and brings 33 years of global technical, testing, and operational experience into the role. 
Further strengthening its global footprint, Reactive is investing significantly in the development of a new research and development (R&D) test center within Abu Dhabi – Reactive’s first such facility in the region.
 The state-of-the-art center aims to replicate the success achieved from the company’s Houston, Texas facility. Cementing its commitment to the Middle East, CEO Mike Allen relocated to Abu Dhabi in Q3 of 2023.
Discussing the reasons behind the restructuring and growth plans, Allen commented: “These internal developments have been strategically coordinated to facilitate our growth on a global scale, complementing our core regions within the Middle East and Americas. With a global focus on clients across these key and developing regions, we’re confident in our growth trajectory. We have great talent and resources at our disposal; this restructuring allows us to further optimize operations for the benefit of our growing client needs.” --OGN/TradeArabia News Service
