Oilfield Instrumentation (OI), a provider of real-time drilling instrumentation and hazardous environment labs, recently announced the promotion of Peyton Reddick, a 14-year veteran of the company, from vice president of operations to president.
Allen Stuart, owner of the company, relinquished his operational duties as president to focus on casting vision and developing new business for the company. “Peyton has demonstrated his dedication to Oilfield Instrumentation as a very effective vice president of operations for both OI and its sister company, Advanced Building Services,” Stuart said. “I have every confidence that he has the type of business acumen and leadership flexibility to take OI to the next levels of growth.”
The move coincides with a shift of focus for OI, from offshore to more land-based operations, a transition required for survival and growth during the Gulf drilling moratorium.
Under Reddick’s leadership, Oilfield Instrumentation recently introduced new technology called Rig Vision Mobile, which allows users to monitor critical well data via their smart phones or mobile devices.
Reddick’s advance also comes with the 2011 opening of two new service centers in California and Oklahoma, bringing its total number of locations to 10. The company has introduced a new website and logo in recent weeks, positioning itself for international and U.S. domestic growth.
