Chevron, ConocoPhillips execs join Oil & Gas UK board
Oil & Gas UK, a representative body of the UK o&g industry, has brought in two new board members from Chevron and ConocoPhillips, two major players in the country’s oil and gas sector.
Oil & Gas UK said on Thursday that Greta Lydecker from Chevron Upstream Europe and ConocoPhillips’ Terri King joined the trade association’s board of directors.
Lydecker, managing director at Chevron Upstream Europe, and Terri King, president of ConocoPhillips UK, will both represent operating companies on the board.
Lydecker has been with Chevron for over 30 years in a variety of senior management roles in oil and gas operations, planning and finance, and environmental management.
She said: “Our industry is facing many challenges and our continued efforts to deliver safe, reliable and affordable energy for the UK will be ensured through improved efficiencies, application of technology, and collaboration. I am honored to be joining the board of Oil & Gas UK.
“I look forward to working closely with industry colleagues and key stakeholders to help improve business performance, maximize the economic recovery from the basin and safeguard its future.”
King joined ConocoPhillips in 1991 and has significant international industry experience in leading upstream project teams in both Norway and the US.
Regarding her appointment, King said: “Oil & Gas UK is setting a vision for global competitiveness in this challenging industry environment, and I am excited to join the board at such a critical time.
“I was last in the North Sea in the 2005-2008 timeframe, working in the Norwegian sector. Today, the basin maturity and commodity price environment brings additional challenges. Oil & Gas UK will play a vital role in ensuring proactive new approaches provide a path for continued energy production and investment. I look forward to being part of the team as they seek to deliver tangible results.”
Deirdre Michie, Oil & Gas UK’s CEO, added: “I am delighted to welcome Greta and Terri to Oil & Gas UK’s board. I believe we have a talented, experienced board on whose experience and guidance we can draw to enable this industry to deliver a safe, more sustainable and efficient industry for the future.”
The appointment of Lydecker and King brings the number of Oil & Gas UK board members to 24.
