Deirdre Michie takes helm at Oil & Gas UK

Deirdre Michie assumed the position of chief executive of Oil & Gas UK on May 1, succeeding Malcolm Webb. She was appointed by the OGUK board in February (OGJ Online, Feb. 27, 2015).

“This is a difficult time for the offshore oil and gas sector,” Michie said. “We need to ensure a step up in its performance to deliver a positive and sustainable future. I look forward to working with industry, unions, governments, and the regulators in moving this industry forward.”

Michie, who worked for Shell for nearly 30 years, will be based in Aberdeen and will have an office in London.

Webb retires from OGUK May 31, after 40 years in the oil and gas industry. He joined the UK Offshore Operators Association as chief executive in 2004 and helped transform UKOOA into OGUK in 2007 by broadening membership to contractors.
