MANAGING DIRECTOR, LONE STAR ANALYSIS LTD. (UK)
Robin Adlam is Managing Director for Lone Star’s UK-Based Subsidiary, Lone Star Analysis Ltd. Prior to Lone Star, he held numerous roles, including several serving the Oil and Gas industry. After 32 years as a serving officer in the Royal Air Force and qualifying as an airline pilot, Robin decided to put his second Master’s Degree to good use in the oil industry, where he has developed training courses based on his leadership experience and training background. The training has been centered around an aviation concept called Crew Resource Management (CRM), adopted by the global Oil and Gas industry as the team enhancing protocol for off-shore workers.
Robin authored an on-line e-learning CRM packaged for the International Well Control Forum (IWCF), has spoken at multiple conferences on the effectiveness of CRM within the off-shore work environment, and was shortlisted by the Energy Institute in 2020 for his pioneering CRM program.
Before his work in the private sector, Robin completed a 32-year career in the RAF as a fighter pilot, senior executive officer, and diplomat. His flying career involved six tours of duty as a pilot on the Harrier jet and an exchange tour with the USN flying FA18s. During his time flying, Robin saw two operational deployments flying over N Iraq, deployed to HMS Ark Royal, Norway, and many Cold War dispersed flying sites throughout former West Germany. He became the Harrier Force’s top weapons instructor before taking the role of Officer Commanding Harrier Operations.
During this time, Robin saw the deployment and recovery of the Harrier Force to Iraq, Jordan, and Afghanistan and a 6-month operational tour of duty with the USAF based out of Al Udeid Qatar running the Strategic Air Planning cell for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Interspersed with his flying duties, he completed postings within the Defence Intelligence and the Air Staff and conducted two operational audits on behalf of the Secretary of State for Defence. His final posting saw Robin complete a 3-year tour as one of the Air Attaches in Washington DC.
