Following a business review, Oil & Gas UK has reorganized into five teams from seven. The trade organization also said it streamlined the number of work groups it runs for its members by 40% to provide greater focus on industry priorities (OGJ Online, Feb. 23, 2016).

The new teams and leaders are: Upstream Policy, Michael Tholen; Business Excellence, Stephen Marcos Jones; HSE, Mick Borwell; External Affairs and Communications, Trisha O’Reilly; and Finance and Corporate Services, Graham Elgie.
