Australia/South East Asia Project Director for WFS - 17/05/2016


WFS Technology has appointed Mike Theobald as project director for Australia and SouthEast Asia. His core discipline is in subsea control systems. Roles with both operators (BP, Maersk Oil, Woodside and Petronas) and equipment manufacturers have given him technology, operations and project management experience.

Mike has worked in the subsea industry for over 25 years. He started his career with FSSL (formally Kvaerner Oilfield Products now Aker Solutions) in 1988, just as subsea systems were gaining popularity. He brings considerable subsea control systems knowledge and understanding, as well as an insight into how best to use Seatooth products and technology.

He has achieved some notable firsts in the oil industry, namely the early development of all-electric subsea systems and Subsea HIPPS, and was the principle mover for SIIS, the subsea instrumentation interface standard. He sits on several industry standards committees and is long time fellow of the Society for Underwater Technology and a Fellow of the Institution for Engineering & Technology.
