Djamal Hamel has been appointed to the role of principal consultant, having previously worked within a senior pipeline position for six years at Spirit Energy, as well as engineering roles at Wood, Subsea 7 and Technip.

A chartered engineer, Djamal holds a PhD in Hydrodynamics from the University of Glasgow and has worked across the oil and gas industry in subsea disciplines, including rigid pipeline design and installation, risers, subsea pipeline asset integrity and project management.

Chris Overton also joins as a principal consultant, following seven years as senior pipeline integrity engineer at Repsol Sinopec. With a BSc in Mechanical Engineering, Chris has previously undertaken roles at DNV GL, Lloyds Register, Oceaneering and Wood.

The new recruits join a team of 20 engineers who provide Xodus’ subsea integrity services, including support with pipelines, risers, subsea structures, umbilicals, controls and all other ancillary equipment. The team has also developed XAMIN, a digital platform for monitoring, managing and assessment of all aspects of the subsea integrity cycle.

Mike Allan, Integrity Lead at Xodus Group said: “We entered the subsea integrity management market five years ago, providing an innovative approach and high-quality service in this area.

“We are thrilled to be able to attract the likes of Djamel and Chris to the team which is a great reflection of the quality and challenge of our ongoing contract work scopes. As we continue to broaden our capabilities to reflect the needs of clients, these appointments add further depth to our offering.”
