Eric joined the company in 2002 bringing 28 years of oilfield experience ranging from North Sea drilling to international production and completions, along with Canadian oil and gas activities. Eric earned an HNC in Science from Robert Gordon’s in Aberdeen prior to starting his career with Otis Engineering. With Otis, Mr. Laing worked in field positions in the North Sea, USA and South East Asia for seven years.

During his time with Site Oil he held the position of Domestic Sales Manager and International Sales Manager. After leaving Site Oil Tools, Mr. Laing was a founding member of Secure Oil Tools. Eric held the position of Domestic and International Sales Manager until the sale of the Secure Oil Tools division to Schlumberger. Mr. Laing then spent 18 months at Schlumberger as Global Business Development Manager to transition the Secure product line into the Schlumberger organization. Mr. Laing joined Stellarton, now Raise Production (formerly the optimization division of VaporTech Energy Services Inc.) in 2002. Mr. Laing is now President and CEO of Raise Production Inc.
