PIDX WELCOMES NEW INTERNATIONAL AMBASSADOR FOR AFRICA


Houston, Texas:  The Petroleum Industry Data Exchange, Inc. (PIDX) standards body recently welcomed Wissam Kahoul of Baker Hughes, a GE Company (BHGE), as its newest International Ambassador. The International Ambassador Program helps facilitate region-specific engagements aimed to educate, promote and influence the adoption and deployment of PIDX standards. Based in Algeria, Wissam's efforts will focus on building strategic outreach initiatives within the Middle East and African Regions.         

“International Ambassadors are vital to PIDX and ultimately the industry because through them the message of standardization and the adoption of business process standards is spreading,” said Lynn Taylor, Oildex VP of Development and PIDX International Business Development Committee Chair. “We rely on our Ambassadors because not only are they experts in what they do, but they're experts in how to apply global standards in Oil & Gas for their regions. They are users of business processes following the PIDX standards and experience the benefits.”

Wissam has 20 years' worth of IT experience, with over 15 in the Oil & & Gas industry. In her current role as Senior Technical Project Manager at BHGE, she is responsible for streamlining existing operations, identifying inefficient processes, and implementing reliable and cost-effective solutions. Wissam previously worked at Schlumberger as Information Management Project Manager, where she provided a management solution for the E&P data and assets of IOCs and NOCs nationally and internationally.

Wissam is enthusiastic to bring her wealth of industry knowledge to the International Ambassador Program. “My aim is to promote PIDX standards within the Algerian Oil & Gas companies, and bring the added value of it to the region,” said Wissam.

Countries that have been represented by PIDX International Ambassadors include the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Indonesia, India, UAE, and the Philippines. PIDX's Ambassador Program continues to grow in these countries, and its presence is expanding in Europe, Central and South America, and Asia.
