Welcome to the ICoTA Europe Chapter

Kris Bruce - Well Intervention YP

ICoTA Europe aims to support, communicate with and promote the well intervention industry. This mission extends to our young engineer members, especially with the new ICoTA Europe Young Professionals section launching in April.

So who are the ICoTA Europe Young Professionals?

Each month, we'll be sharing a YP story, detailing how these industry up-and-comers are beginning to make their mark in the industry.

In our second YP interview, we introduce Kris Bruce who is a Senior Field Engineer for isol8.

Kris’s role is to plan, prepare and execute wellsite operations.

“Over the last 10 years I have been working in various operational roles both onshore and offshore with a key focus towards E-line interventions.”

Kris has gained some fantastic experience in his career to date.

“My favourite aspect of my job is the diversity. No two operations are the same. I’ve also been lucky to have had the opportunity to work in various locations worldwide.”

Following the first few years in the industry, Kris has some advice for those who are looking to get started in the oil and gas industry.

“Try not to focus on one role or service in particular. Early in your career try to take on multiple roles in Well Intervention to get a broad knowledge of all the services available.”

Before joining the YP committee, Kris was a member of ICoTA Europe and encourages others to also take part.

"ICoTA is great platform to build relationships with other industry professionals and to learn about new or existing technology.”

We're delighted to welcome Kris to play his part in the ICoTA European Chapter, and it's good to hear that he has already enjoyed the benefits of being involved with the association.
