Mohammed El Deeb

Mohammed El-Deeb, a master degree graduate from Heriot Watt University’s school of Petroleum Engineering joined the award-winning Merlin team at their international HQ, Perth, Scotland. With previous work experience in both business and financial institutions in the Middle East, Mohammed is a great fit to this international oil and gas consultancy.

Double Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade winners, Merlin have provided their expert extended reach drilling (ERD) and ultra-long lateral (ULL) horizontal drilling engineering and training services to date on over 200 projects in 40 countries.

Merlin ERD Ltd are seeing some impressive results, since opening their US office in October 2016, Merlin have seen a marked increase in enquiries and contract awards from the USA, Canada and South America.  2017 has also seen major demand for training, on the back of 2 successful Houston ERD drilling schools Merlin were awarded a Global Training contract by a major operator in the US.  The first two of these courses are scheduled for August.  There is another pay per seat course scheduled for Houston in October which is filling up fast!   Mohammed will be straight to work helping to co-ordinate these.

Iain Hutchison, Managing Director commented that he was “extremely proud of all that his team had achieved lately”.  He added “We are delighted to welcome Mohammed to the Merlin family, he will be a great support to our Training and Engineering Team over the busy summer period.  As an Ambassador for Invest in Perth, it is particularly pleasing to have secured another talented individual to set up home in this beautiful city”.
