Offshore Industry Poised For “Dramatic Transformation” – Take Five With Christian Schöck
By DJ Slater30 October 2020
Changes tend to be abundant in most industries as the calendar transitions to the next decade. The offshore sector of the oil and gas industry is not immune to these changes. Digital technologies and decarbonization have, and continue to, play a prominent role in the sector’s evolution, one that Christian Schöck, CEO of Siemens Brazil, has had a front seat to for several years.
Schöck’s career in the oil and gas industry dates back to 2001, when he served as the global localization director and pre-salt replicantes project director with Dresser-Rand Brazil. During localization developments, Schöck managed local content and managed Siemens’ infrastructure in several countries, such as Brazil, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab
Emirates and led the development of local content worldwide. He also served as a project director in Brazil, the United States and other locations on several large-scale projects.
