UK-based Independent Oil and Gas (IOG) has appointed a new chief operating officer (COO) of the company.

IOG said on Thursday that Mark Hughes would be the company’s new COO and a member of the board of directors.

Hughes is a qualified civil engineer and a chartered member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers. He held senior management roles at several international oil and gas companies including Shell, Lasmo, and Gaz de France.

Most recently he was the head of development for DEA UK where he was responsible for the Breagh and Clipper South Developments before becoming the commercial director for Ineos Breagh.

Andrew Hockey, CEO of IOG, said: “Having worked in the industry for 39 years, Mark has significant sector experience, and we are delighted that he is joining our team.

“As we move towards the full development of our SNS assets Mark’s North Sea experience and commercial expertise perfectly complements the rest of the senior management team, and we look forward to working with him.”

Earlier this week, IOG completed the acquisition of the Thames pipeline located in the Southern North Sea (SNS). The pipeline is an essential part of the development of the Blythe and Vulcan Satellite hubs, allowing gas export to the Bacton Terminal.

Following the completion of acquisition, ODE was awarded a contract to act as the Thames pipeline operator on behalf of IOG.
