As the Wood change project comes to an end and we look towards Vision 2035 as an industry, it is clear that we still have work to do. In the lower for longer world, and with a cost base that remains stubbornly uncompetitive, what can the industry do collectively to compete globally? The benefits of assets changing hands is well understood and, with EnQuest soon to take on Magnus and Sullom Voe Terminal, we believe the case for creative thinking and new models of collaboration is strong.


Neil is a graduate of Cambridge University and Heriot Watt University and holds a Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering. He began his career as a graduate trainee with British Gas E&P and from 1996 to 2001 worked in a variety of technical consultancy and investment banking roles. He then went on to spend 11 years with BG Group in a range of senior UK and international roles, latterly as vice president & asset general manager, UK Upstream, with accountability for the delivery of BG’s UK North Sea business.

Neil joined EnQuest in March 2014 from international oil and gas company OMV AG, where he held the global role of senior vice president production & engineering. Neil holds a number of external appointments including operator co-chair of Oil & Gas UK, a board member of the Oil & Gas Innovation Centre and board member of Opportunity North East (Oil & Gas).
