Braemar Technical Services are pleased to welcome Mark MacDonald as a Senior Loss Adjuster in the London Office.
Mark holds a Master’s degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Dundee.
Mark’s background is as a Measurement / Logging While Drilling (M/LWD) engineer working for a service company in the Oil and Gas Industry. During his time in the industry, he worked on many jack-up and semi-submersible rigs during drilling operations throughout the Dutch and UK sectors of the North Sea, as well as onshore Italy, Netherlands, and the UK. He has experience of drilling conventional oil and gas wells, as well as high pressure high temperature wells and geothermal wells.
In 2009, Mark began his loss adjusting career in London. Given his background and in-depth knowledge of drilling operations, he mainly focused on the handling of well control claims, both offshore and onshore and on a worldwide basis. He also gained knowledge of the London insurance market and of policy wordings associated with control of well and other energy risks.
In 2012, Mark moved to Singapore, primarily to deal with well control claims in the Asia-Pacific region. During his time in Singapore, Mark was involved in many complex well control claims, including underground blowouts, and also dealt with incidents involving deepwater drilling and managed pressure drilling. In addition to well control claims, Mark also dealt with a number of Operational PD claims across Asia.
In 2018, Mark returned to London to join Braemar and we are certain that he will be a great addition to the team.
