New board officers & members for Oil & Gas UK

Oil & Gas UK, an offshore oil and gas industry representative body, announced the appointment of new member company representatives and a new team of officers to lead its board.

All changes are of immediate effect.

Neil McCulloch, president, North Sea at EnQuest PLC, and Terry Savage, corporate relationship director at Global Energy Group, take over as co-chairmen of the board, representing the operator and contractor communities respectively.

Their predecessors, Trevor Garlick of BP and John Pearson of Amec Foster Wheeler, have now both stepped down from the board having completed the maximum period of tenure allowed.

Neil McCulloch commented on his appointment: “I am delighted to take on the operator co-chairman role and look forward to working closely with the Board and the leadership team at Oil & Gas UK to ensure it continues to make a positive impact on our vital industry.”

“Over the past 18 months, enormous progress has been made with our member companies confronting cost and efficiency challenges, the likes of which we have not seen before. We have also seen greater engagement, including delivery of much needed fiscal reform, with both the UK and Scottish Governments. With the Oil and Gas Authority now bedded in, we have more in hand to deliver Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) UK.”

Terry Savage said of his new role: “The industry is rightly proud of its world-class supply chain, and I look forward to representing companies of all sizes and throughout the UK.”

Existing board members Ray Riddoch, managing director and senior vice president Europe at Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited, and Neil Sims, vice president ECIS Region at Expro North Sea, take on the vice co-chairman roles representing the operator and contractor communities respectively. Craig May, managing director of Chevron Upstream Europe, remains in role as honorary treasurer.

Other appointments to the Oil & Gas UK board are: Mark Thomas, regional president of BP North Sea, who brings to the board more than 34 years’ experience in operations, strategy and commercial positions gained globally; Walter Thain, managing director, West, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services business, who has 25 years’ global oil and gas experience including senior roles across strategy, business development and operations within the oilfield services sector; and Morten Kelstrup, VP, managing director of Maersk Oil UK.
