Xodus Group, a provider of engineering and advisory support for the oil and gas industry, has appointed a new lead for its decommissioning division.

Xodus said on Monday that Gareth Jones was named the decom lead of the company.

The appointment follows a successful year for Xodus’ decommissioning division which secured several new clients and won £2 million ($2.57 million) of work in 2018.

According to Exodus, as an experienced principal consultant and project manager, Jones will be responsible for advising and supporting operators in relation to environmental and societal impacts associated with decommissioning.

Jones joins Xodus from BMT Cordah where he led the company’s international decommissioning activities. Previously, he was a marine ecologist with Marine Scotland, providing advice and support regarding commercial fisheries and marine fish species for oil and gas, renewables, and infrastructure projects.

Jones, who will be based in the company’s Aberdeen office, said: “It is a huge honor to join such an experienced and knowledgeable group of people at Xodus. The company has been at the forefront of solving a variety of decommissioning challenges for many years, and I hope my skills will strengthen the team.”

He will work closely with Xodus’ decommissioning director Enrico Salardi who recently relocated to the UK from the company’s Perth office.

Salardi added: “Throughout his career, Gareth has built up excellent relationships with operators, particularly on environmental and decommissioning projects, and communicates effectively with stakeholders. He has shown that he has all the attributes needed to be an asset for the company and we’re pleased he has joined Xodus.

“We are also becoming more and more active in other regions where operators and regulators are just beginning to face increasing decommissioning issues. Our team has a wealth of experience in the North Sea and this knowledge brings huge value to other key regions around the world.”
