Industry body Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) revealed Thursday that its Efficiency Task Force (ETF) has appointed three new members to its steering group.

The new additions comprise Romain Chambault, director of oilfield equipment at Baker Hughes GE, Steve Cox, non-operated ventures director at Chrysaor, and Colin Black, managing director of Carjon-NRG.

Commenting on the appointments, Mariesha Jaffray, OGUK’s continuous improvement manager, said, “we are delighted to welcome Romain, Steve and Colin to the ETF steering group and know that they will each provide valuable insight and contribute to what we are trying to achieve long-term”.

“The ETF acts as a catalyst bringing industry together under the common goal of improving efficiency and increasing the global competitiveness of the UKCS, by changing behavior and communicating best practice across the sector,” Jaffray added.

“The key to our success is strong leadership from the steering group, together with support from Oil & Gas UK board members and industry efficiency champions who are engaged in ongoing activities,” Jaffray continued.

In just over three years since the ETF launched, it has secured “transformational change” in areas including business processes, standardization and simplification, culture and behaviors industry-wide, according to OGUK.

The industry body said this year the group will “look to build on increased engagement with more efficiency champions helping to deliver and promote projects, download guidelines, share best practice and attend company-hosted roadshows”.

“It will also work across the supply chain to expand opportunities – ultimately helping to achieve industry’s shared ambition, Vision 2035,” OGUK added.

In December last year, OGUK appointed Sian Lloyd Rees, UK country manager and SVP of customer management at Aker Solutions, to its board. Back in October, OGUK appointed a team of decommissioning experts.
