TAQA – the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company – has appointed Donald Taylor as managing director of its North Sea and Netherlands oil and gas division. He has been acting managing director since late 2016.
Taylor joined TAQA in 2009 and has held a range of operational and safety leadership roles, latterly as operations director. He previously held management jobs at North Sea operators Maersk Oil, Kerr-McGee, BHP and Conoco.
A Chartered Mechanical Engineer with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Glasgow University, Taylor commented: “It is a privilege to lead TAQA’s European business into the next phase of its journey.
“We have undergone a significant transformation programme over the past few years. Although this is now complete, the key challenge is to ensure the improvements made are sustained.”
