In response to this need, he founded Petrotechnics. Today, Mr. Murray is responsible for managing and driving global teams to support Petrotechnics’ customers in more than 22 countries. For more than 25 yr, Mr. Murray has been instrumental in changing the way people work, giving them the tools to manage the relationship between operational performance and risk.
