Nugensis Oil and Gas – which provides decision-support software to the oil and gas industry, has appointed Martin Slowey to its board as Energy Director.
Slowey joins Nugensis, taking with him over 20 years of experience in the oil and gas industry.
Nugensis is privately owned Scottish software company, which employs 30 people from its offices in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Manchester. The company focuses on providing innovative software solutions to the oil and gas sector, with a particular emphasis on process safety management
Slowey’s appointment will see Nugensis extend the reach of its domestic oil and gas market into many of the traditional global oil and gas hubs.
While the industry continues to be challenged by the current down cycle, there are concerns that many cost-based decisions are being made at board level without full visibility of the impact on personnel safety and asset integrity.
Nugensis provides decision support tools, which back up the decisions senior managers of operated assets are expected to make on a daily basis.
The appointment comes on the back of the successful deployment of its Process Safety Management product with one of the UK’s largest operators in the North Sea.
Ian Milligan, Managing Director, Nugensis, said: “We are delighted to welcome Martin Slowey to the team, as our oil gas division looks to expand. The industry has responded positively to our software products, specifically those which provide operators with a clear line of sight to their safety critical data. This is a great time for Martin to be joining the team.”
Slowey said: “Technology, now more than ever, is enabling oil and gas companies to understand their hazard identification or risk management data more effectively and enable them to get an insight into their performance on process safety management.”
