Maersk Decom, a joint venture decommissioning company, has appointed a chief financial officer (CFO).
Maersk Decom said via social media channels on Wednesday that it appointed Jacob Halberg to the role of CFO.
The company added that Halberg arrived at Maersk Decom from the position of Group CFO at Mobylife.
Halberg will join the senior management team consisting of CEO Lars Banke, previously from Total, CCO Jens Klit Thomsen, previously from Maersk Supply Service, and CTO Carsten Sander Jacobsen, previously from INEOS Denmark.
Before that, he held various leadership positions within finance at Novo Nordisk Engineering, IBM, and Maersk Data. He has 17 years of experience in the field of corporate finance and holds a Master of Science in Economics.
Maersk Decom was established through a joint venture between Maersk Drilling and Maersk Supply Service back in April 2018 in order to provide decommissioning services to oil and gas operators. The JV between the two companies was named Maersk Decom in late June 2018.
According to the JV partners, since its establishment, Maersk Decom received interest from both the North Sea – where more than 400 fields are expected to cease production by 2026 – and from the global market.
It is worth reminding that Maersk Decom will initially offer bundled solutions for up to 80% of the process required in decommissioning an oil field. In the longer term, the company plans to provide the full end-to-end process of decommissioning.
