Centrica-controlled producer Spirit Energy has appointed Scott McGinigal as its director of technical services and health, safety and environmental matters, the joint venture said July 5.
Mr McGinigal (below) formerly held various leadership roles at CNOOC, including managing its major projects and its business and technical services.
His role will cover many of Spirit’s operations, including HSES, projects, wells, engineering and the supply chain. He said he was “delighted to be joining a team with a proven track record in decommissioning, substantial gas assets and a strategically significant and world-class carbon store in Morecambe.”
Spirit Energy is planning to develop a carbon storage site at the Morecambe Bay fields, following the award of a licence. The giant fields were developed as a major winter supply resource by British Gas.
