Gordon Drummond

Subsea 7


Gordon has been involved in the subsea sector since 1994 initially offshore on diving vessels and latterly in an engineering capacity.  Gordon has a first class degree in Mechanical Engineering and his PhD focussed on the “Condition Monitoring Strategies and Techniques for Static Plant” published in 2004.  This was the outcome of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership scheme between Imes Group and Robert Gordon University.

Gordon is Subsea 7’s Global Technology Manager and administers their technology budget and process, sponsoring the good ideas that take the company forward in emerging markets of deeper water, more hostile environments and more aggressive (high pressure/high temperature, corrosive) production fluids.  He has recently expanded his role into Corporate Venture Capital activities, seeking relevant investment opportunities that benefit Subsea 7’s business.

He is a member of the Institute of Directors and a Chartered Engineer.  Gordon completed 3 years as Project Director for the National Subsea Research Initiative, the technology arm of Subsea UK, a body specialising in the support for developmental activities in the subsea arena.
