New Chairman for Decom North Sea

Decom North Sea has appointed Nigel Lees as the new chairman of the board.

As vice president responsible for decommissioning at Wood Group, Lees has been an active member on the Decom North Sea board of directors for the past five years.

His election follows the decision of Callum Falconer to step down after two years.

Lees said: “As the spotlight intensifies on decommissioning and how the industry will prepare for the challenges ahead, this is an exciting time for me to take up the reins as chairman. I believe that Decom North Sea has a crucial role to play in representing its membership as the recognised body for the decommissioning supply chain, working closely with our industry partners and government to ensure these challenges are met and opportunities realised in the most appropriate manner.

“I look forward to utilising my knowledge of the industry and working closely with the board to ensure that Decom North Sea continues to be at the forefront of the decommissioning agenda.”

Roger Esson, Decom North Sea chief executive, said: “We are delighted to announce Nigel’s election to the post of chairman, as we have valued his input and commitment to the body over the last five years.

“This is a challenging time for the North Sea industry in general, with late life asset management and decommissioning increasingly appearing on the agenda. I have no doubt that Nigel’s significant experience and network will contribute to helping our members – and the wider industry – understand and prepare for what lies ahead.”
