Oil & Gas UK Announces BoD Appointments

Oil & Gas UK, the representative organisation for the oil and gas industry, announces new appointments to its board.

The appointments are:

• Eric D’Argentre, UK General Manager, Perenco UK

• Luke Farajallah, Managing Director, Bond Offshore Helicopters

• Martin Rune Pederson, Managing Director, VP, Maersk Oil UK

• Andy Samuel, Managing Director Europe E&P, BG Group

• Doug Sedge, Chief Executive Officer, Sparrows

Malcolm Webb, Oil & Gas UK’s chief executive, said: “We are very fortunate at Oil & Gas UK to have a board of Directors of the highest calibre and these new appointments only enhance the strength and breadth of experience and knowledge which guides our organisation, the industry’s leading trade association.”

Andy Samuel, Martin Rune Pederson and Eric D’Argentre will represent the interests of operators while Doug Sedge and Luke Farajallah will represent industry contractors.

James Edens, vice president and managing director at CNR International (UK) and Oil & Gas UK’s operator co-chair said: “It is hugely encouraging to have such senior industry colleagues providing their insight and experience to the Board’s work.”

Gordon Ballard, chairman and country manager at Schlumberger UK and Oil & Gas UK’s contractor co-chair, said: “These latest appointments bring the total contractors represented on the Board to ten, highlighting the importance of the supply chain’s technology and expertise to Oil & Gas UK’s objectives.”

Webb explains: “To ensure that Oil & Gas UK’s Board of Directors remains truly representative of the UK oil and gas industry, Board members are rotated at regular intervals and we would like to thank those members of the Board who have recently stepped down for their valuable contribution to the work of the association.”

These members are:

• Brenda Dulaney, formerly of Chevron Upstream Limited

• Leo Koot, Taqa Bratani Limited

• Nigel Lees, formerly of BIS Salamis (M&I) Limited

• Jonathan Roger, formerly of Centrica Energy

“The UK oil and gas industry is currently experiencing a period of record investment but, with production falling and costs rising, the sector is not without its challenges. The Board provides clarity of foresight and strong guidance, which are crucial to achieving our strategic objectives: to maximise the recovery of the UK’s oil and gas resources; promote the long term future of our supply chain in the UK; and to raise awareness of our industry as Britain’s largest industrial investor .”
