EnQuest, a UK North Sea oil firm, has appointed a non-executive director to the company’s board with effect from September 7, 2017.
EnQuest said that, after joining the board, the new director, John Winterman, would become a member of the Audit, Risk, and Remuneration Committees.
Winterman, a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, has oil and gas experience in global exploration, business development, and asset management, the company stated.
His record of exploration includes work in the Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Russia, United States, and Yemen. He joined Occidental in 1981 and after over a 20-year technical career as a geologist with the company, moved into executive roles, these included high-level leadership positions in exploration, new business development, and in asset management.
Winterman left Occidental in 2013, and since then he has provided strategic advice to international oil and gas companies.
He is currently a non-executive director of CC Energy, the energy division of the privately held construction company CCC.
Jock Lennox, chairman of EnQuest, said: “We are delighted to have John joining the board of EnQuest. He brings with him 40 years of experience in the oil and gas sector, which includes 15 years of executive responsibilities at Occidental. We look forward to working with him.”
