IOG picks new independent non-executive director

UK-based Independent Oil and Gas (IOG), a development and production focused oil and gas company, has appointed a new independent non-executive director.

IOG said on Friday that Neil Hawkings was appointed as the company’s new director following an external search process.

According to the company, Hawkings has over 35 years of experience in the upstream oil and gas sector and has held various senior management positions at ConocoPhillips and Premier Oil.

During his time at ConocoPhillips, Hawkings was managing director at Britannia Operator Limited, where he led operations at the Britannia gas condensate field – the UK’s second largest gas producing field.

Before Britannia, Hawkings also played key roles in the development of Conoco’s Southern North Sea business and the greenfield development of gas reserves at Conoco’s West Natuna project in Indonesia.

More recently, he served as operations director at Premier Oil where he was responsible for operational and development activities across their global portfolio.

In 2013, he became the director for South East Asia and the Falkland Islands, which includes the Chim Sao producing oil field in Vietnam, the Natuna Sea gas fields in Indonesia and the Sea Lion Development project in the Falklands.

The company added that Hawkings would also serve on the company’s HSE and Technical Committee of the board.

Fiona MacAulay, independent non-executive chair of IOG, said: “I am delighted to welcome Neil to the IOG board.

“He joins the company at an important and exciting time, and we firmly believe that his long track record and well established technical and commercial expertise will be hugely helpful as we continue to make positive progress at our core SNS project and look forward to the Harvey appraisal well due to spud in July.”
