Martin Rowe co-founded Zennor and was appointed Managing Director in April 2014 on completion of a management buy-out.
Since starting out as a drilling engineer in 1991, and through his 10 years with Arco, Martin gained significant operational experience across the upstream engineering disciplines
After Arco, Martin began working with the junior E&Ps and his technical background is now allied to many years of experience across the commercial and financial sectors of the upstream industry.
Martin was instrumental in attracting Kerogen’s backing to the Company and delivering the cornerstone Finlaggan transaction, both of which were closed in 2015.
Rod Crawford, a 12-year Arco veteran, is another co-founded of Zennor. He has spent over 35 years in the oil and gas industry undertaking acquisition, processing and interpretation of both land and marine seismic data. Rod has led several multi-disciplinary subsurface teams looking at a diverse range of projects, ranging from exploration, appraisal to development.
At Zennor, Rod and his team have a very successful track record in competitive UKCS offshore license round applications, based on established technical work flows and methodologies designed to minimise exploration and appraisal risk.
Rod’s input to the Finlaggan project has been pivotal, through his leadership of the Dual Azimuth reprocessing of the Finlaggan area seismic data using Generalised Radon Transform (“GRT”) algorithms.
James Henry has been Zennor’s FD since 2007 and he played a leading role in the Company’s MBO in April 2014. James qualified as a chartered accountant with Arthur Young after gaining a BSc in Geology from Exeter University. James spent 21 years in the financial services sector including senior management roles at LIFFE, The London Clearing House and Cargill Investor Services.
Having played a pivotal role in securing the Kerogen investment in 2015, James has been responsible for attracting a £170mm Term Loan Facility to fund the Finlaggan development. The facility is backed by a syndicate of leading North Sea upstream RBL banks led by Societe Generale
