The Company also announces that it has appointed John Aldersey-Williams (aged 50) to the Board of Lansdowne as a Non-Executive Director, also with immediate effect.

“On behalf of Lansdowne I would like to thank Steven Bertram for his substantial contribution to the Company’s activities since the Lansdowne flotation in 2006 and we wish him all the best for his future work within the SeaEnergy Group. I would also like to welcome John Aldersey-Williams, CEO of SeaEnergy, to the Lansdowne Board and we look forward to working with him to progress our projects offshore Ireland.”
