Decom North Sea, the membership organisation for the oil and gas decommissioning sector, has appointed John Warrender as chief executive, starting on August 01, 2018.

Most recently John worked as an independent advisor to the industry, applying his specific expertise in corporate governance and performance improvement. He spent over 20 years with ConocoPhillips in a range of technical and leadership positions, latterly as general manager, Upstream Gas Assets in the UKCS, before joining theboard of Repsol Sinopec as MD for Sinopec’s UK subsidiary during a critical transformative phase for the company.

He also served on the OGA Regional Development and Infrastructure board and is currently a member of the Asset Stewardship Task Force.

John Warrender said: “My experience within the decommissioning sector, coupled with a track record in strategy development and performance management, government and stakeholder relations, and board governance, give me a strong sense of the role Decom North Sea must play in the future of the industry.

“As such, I look forward to commencing my role as chief executive next month, working with our members and strategic partners to achieve our objectives.”

Nigel Lees, chairman of Decom North Sea’s board of directors added: “An influential link between the oil and gas community, industry regulators, government entities and other industry bodies, John is a true integrator – and only through a joined-up approach can we hope to realise our collective ambition to reduce the cost of decommissioning in the North Sea.

“Using his considerable experience in performance management and board governance – together with a critical understanding of the requirements of a prominent industry trade association – John has the ability to ensure Decom North Sea meets the diverse needs of our members, whilst enhancing collaboration with key stakeholders and the wider energy industry. In doing so, we can create a class-leading supply chain which can benefit from export opportunities to other basins.”
