Malcolm Webb, chief executive of Oil & Gas UK – the London-based N. Sea oil and gas industry trade association – is to stand down after more than 10 years in post.
The exact date of his retiral in 2015 is yet to be agreed but will be within a timeframe that allows a seamless transfer of the position to his successor.
Webb joined Oil & Gas UK in February 2004 when it was known as UKOOA – the UK Offshore Operators’ Association. He has since led the organisation through major change to make it open to all companies working in the UK offshore oil and gas industry. Its current membership counts more than 400 companies.
Prior to his current post, he spent three years as Director General of the UK Petroleum Industry Association, representing the UK oil refining and marketing sector.
Webb is also a member of the Scottish Government’s Energy Advisory Board.
He was awarded an honorary Doctorate by Robert Gordon University in recognition of his services to the UK oil and gas industry in 2012.
