New Board Members Add Further Expertise to Oil & Gas UK

Posted by OilVoice Press - OilVoice

25-Apr-2018


Three key leaders in the upstream industry have join the board of Oil & Gas UK bringing further expertise in oilfield services, drilling and exploration activities.
 
David Clark, Aker Solution's Executive Vice President (Services), will represent major contractor companies supplying services and products to the global oil and gas industry. He brings extensive leadership, operational and business development expertise from his experience working in Asia Pacific, Middle East, Australia and Europe.
 
With over 30 years' drilling operations experience, Kenny Dey, UK Managing Director at Archer, will add further support to the industry association's representation of the supply chain. Mr Dey, who has been a board member of OPITO - the oil and gas industry's skills organisation, will help strengthen the links between the two organisations on issues including industry skills needs and workforce development.
 
Reflecting the recent influx of independent operators now active on the UK Continental Shelf, Nick Terrell, Managing Director for Azinor Catalyst, has been appointed to help represent smaller-scale exploration and production companies in the basin. Nick has already contributed to several of Oil & Gas UK's work forums and is currently chair of the Oil & Gas Authority's (OGA) Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) Exploration Taskforce.
 
Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive, Oil & Gas UK, said: "Our new board appointments have already demonstrated they have the qualities we need to drive further progress on industry's road to recovery. Across the sector, effective leadership has helped us become fitter and leaner, and I would like to thank board members past and present for their role in enabling us to tackle the challenge of maximising economic recovery while helping to boost profitability in the supply chain."
 
"Our focus now is to build on these achievements to ensure the UKCS remains competitive and attractive to investors. I look forward to working with our board to ensure we deliver on that objective in what remains a demanding business environment."
