Tantawy jas joined Xodus from PICO Petroleum Integrated Services where he served as the project general manager for the Amal-C platform installation in the Gulf of Suez.

With 37 years of experience in oil and gas industry, Tantawy started his career as a project engineer. Before moving to PICO, he was chairman assistant (vice-president) for projects with Gulf of Suez petroleum (GUPCO), BP’s joint venture for oil production in Egypt.

Speaking to the press, Tantawy said, “I hope my experience in managing multi-million-dollar projects and my knowledge of the Egyptian oil and gas sector will help in attracting new business as well as reinforcing already established partnerships.”

Since 2013, Xodus has won more than US$2.79mn in contracts in Egypt. Much of that work was previously won and carried out by Xodus’ offices in Aberdeen and London, however research found that an established base was required to increase business in the country.

The new office is located in the Maadi district of Cairo, which is central to many oil and gas company operational headquarters.

Steve Swindell, managing director of Xodus Group, said, “Over the last five years we have been collaborating with international and state organisations in developing upstream projects and increasing value of their assets. During this time, we have undertaken many scopes ranging between FEED work, advisory services, engineering studies and operational asset support assessments for major and independent oil and gas companies.”

With the addition of Tantawy, the company hopes to engage with clients and deploy services quicker, thus helping to attract new businesses.

Xodus will exhibit at the Scotland Pavilion on Stand 1E30 at the Egypt Petroleum Show, from 12-14 February 2018.
