OGA Seeks Chief of Decommissioning

Gunther Newcombe, director of operations at the OGA

The Oil & Gas Authority UK is looking for head of decommissioning department on a permanent basis.

Based in Aberdeen, the head of decommissioning leads a specialist team of five within the operations directorate and reports to the director of operations. This is the largest directorate and is responsible for the overall stewardship of oil and gas exploration, production and decommissioning on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

Gunther Newcombe, director of operations at the OGA, is currently undertaking the role of acting head of decommissioning.

Newcombe said: “The OGA are looking for a new head of decommissioning following the departure of Jim Christie at the end of June and we are keen to hear from potential candidates. During the period of recruitment I will be acting head of decommissioning and also taking on the role of supporting Terri King, of ConocoPhillips, on the decommissioning task force.”

Prior to joining the OGA in June 2015 Newcombe worked as BP’s VP decommissioning during the period 2007 – 2012 and was responsible for the removal of NW Hutton platform and commencing the decommissioning processes of the Miller and Don fields.
