Industry body Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) has announced the appointment of Alistair Stobie, chief financial officer at Hurricane Energy, to its board.

Hurricane Energy has developed pioneering approaches to exploration, particularly in the frontier region West of Shetland and the company has recently achieved first oil from the Lancaster field.

Mr Stobie has significant capital markets and international oil and gas industry experience and was previously director of finance at AIM-quoted Zoltav Resources and CFO at Oando Exploration & Production.

He said: “I am delighted to be joining OGUK’s board at this critical juncture in the industry’s future as we deliver both the oil and gas necessary to transition to a net-zero carbon emissions economy.”

Bob Drummond, CEO of Hydrasun Group, a provider of integrated fluid transfer, power and control solutions, has also been appointed to the OGUK board.

Deirdre Michie, OGUK’s chief executive, said: “I am really pleased to welcome both Bob and Alistair to OGUK’s board as they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be hugely beneficial as we engage in the challenges facing the industry.

“As well as ensuring as much as possible of UK demand for oil and gas is matched by efficient domestic production, we also have to play our part in supporting the UK in its net-zero ambition. Delivering Vision 2035 is our route to doing this that will also seek to improve diversity and inclusion and attract and retain talent into the sector.

“Around the OGUK board table, Bob and Alistair will continue to ensure a strong voice for the supply chain and for the diversity of operators that continue to be attracted to the UKCS.”
