Oil & Gas UK Announce Deidre Michie as new Chief Executive
Posted on: 27/02/2015

Oil & Gas UK, the leading industry body, have announced the appointment of new chief executive as Deidre Michie (pictured).

Regarding her replacement of Malcolm Webb in May, Michie said: “I am really delighted to have been appointed to this important industry role and look forward to working with the high-performance team that is Oil & Gas UK. This is a hugely challenging time for the industry that will require us all- industry, government and the new regulator-to work co-operatively to ensure we address the issues that face us.

“This is a great industry, a key part of the British economy and with a UK-based supply chain that is world-class. Oil & Gas UK has a crucial role in helping the industry to emerge from the current downturn on a stronger, fitter and more sustainable footing that will see the UK producing oil and gas from its offshore areas for decades to come.”

Deidre has worked for Shell for the past 30 years and has extensive experience in both operator and supply chain orientated role. Trevor Garlick, co-chairman of Oil & Gas UK said: “Deirdre Michie’s strong oil and gas industry background will help her represent the broad spectrum of our membership, whilst also providing the strategic thinking and direction the industry needs from its trade association, especially in these challenging times.”

Malcom Webb, who will formally retire from the body in May, has transformed Oil & Gas UK into a “highly influential trade association widely accepted as the voice of the UK offshore oil and gas industry” (Trevor Garlick), however it seems that the body will be in good hands with Deidre and her vast expertise.
