Oil & Gas UK, the representative organisation for the UK offshore oil and gas industry, announces a number of appointments of member company representatives to its Board with immediate effect.
Alan Corbett, managing director at Bristow Helicopters, will represent the aviation sector on the Board, replacing Richard Mintern of Babcock International Group.
Dominic Macklon, president UK for ConocoPhillips, is appointed to the Board as a representative of the operator community bringing experience latterly from the Canadian oil sands business. He replaces David Chenier of ConocoPhillips following his relocation to the US.
Ray Riddoch, managing director and senior vice president Europe of Nexen Petroleum U.K. Ltd, is also appointed to represent the operator community, bringing more than 30 years’ oil and gas industry experience, including holding senior positions in major operating companies. He replaces Archie Kennedy, who formerly held the role of Treasurer and retired from Nexen in July.
Existing Board member, Chevron Upstream Europe Limited’s managing director, Craig May, has taken over the role of Treasurer.
Mr Corbett said: “I am delighted to have this opportunity to serve on the Board of Oil & Gas UK and provide input at a time when all segments of the industry, including aviation, are being challenged to deliver measurable changes around productivity and efficiency that will ensure a sustainable future for the sector and those that support it. All members of the community feel these challenges and none are void of the responsibility for ensuring safety remains a priority. I look forward to carrying on the drive and support that Richard Mintern provided previously.”
