Subsea industry leader heads up decommissioning industry body



Decom North Sea (DNS), the only membership organisation dedicated to the oil and gas decommissioning sector, has announced Fraser Moonie as its new chief executive.

He brings more than 25 years’ experience to the role, including 15 years with Bibby Offshore, where he help grow the company into one of the global subsea industry’s key players.

His decommissioning-specific experience includes some of the sector’s highest profile campaigns; from Technip’s Phillips Maureen platform re-float project in 2001 through to 2015’s ConocoPhillips MacCulloch project.

Moonie said: “I join DNS at what continues to be an extraordinary time for society and a challenging time to be in business – I believe that the next five years are critical to our industry, and that DNS has a key role to play in facilitating domestic and international success for its members.

“Operator, supply chain and regulator communities share a joint vision to provide safe, cost-effective and environmentally-sound decommissioning as the energy transition accelerates – and DNS exists to provide a vital link between each group, facilitating their joint success.”

Jinda Nelson, chair of DNS’ board of directors, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Fraser to DNS, knowing that his global decommissioning experience, entrepreneurial spirit and engaging manner make him a perfect candidate to drive our strategy.

“Highly respected and with outstanding, well-documented leadership skills, Fraser’s passion for this industry is clear and we are convinced that he will play an important part in the future of the organisation and wider decom sector.”

DNS’ interim managing director Will Rowley, who has led and developed the organisation during the past 12 months, will support a smooth transition before continuing his long-standing involvement with DNS.

The non-profit organisation works with a number of strategic partners, including the Oil & Gas Authority, OGUK and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
