Kelly Forrest.

Engineering Team Lead, Sand Management department, based in Aberdeen and support operations in SE Asia.

Following completion of my university degree, I started with SMS as a graduate engineer, gaining experience in oil and gas production and associated sand management. I then took on an opportunity in SE Asia as a project engineer, seconded to Malaysia by year 2 at the company.

Based overseas for a year, I established myself as the focal point in an operator’s office leading a holistic sand management group to rectify a significant sand production concern, and managing asset integrity. Following my return to the UK I achieved the role as team lead for the sand management group and have continued this role since, more recently playing a role in the company’s management team.
