Decom North Sea (DNS), the only membership organisation dedicated to the oil and gas decommissioning sector, has announced the appointment of two new board members as it continues to implement a strategy of restructure and refocus.

Callum Falconer and Steve Simpson have both been nominated onto the DNS board, following a period of time spent as nominated members of the organisation’s Decommissioning Leadership Group, which is responsible for setting and supporting DNS’ strategic direction.

Director of CRF Consultants and Chief Executive of the Dundeecom partnership, Callum Falconer returns to Decom North Sea’s board of directors, after a previous tenure of 4 years which included 2 years in the position of Board Chairperson.

Steve Simpson, Business Development Manager for oilfield equipment provider, Brimmond Group, joins the DNS board following 2 years’ service on the Decommissioning Leadership Group, where he applied his first-hand experience of the challenges and opportunities presented by the late life and decommissioning sector.

Commenting on the latest appointments to the DNS Board, Chairperson, Jinda Nelson says, “I am genuinely delighted to welcome both Callum and Steven to the Board; both bring an invaluable knowledge and understanding of the supply chain to the table.”

“Steven brings a fresh and enthusiastic eye to the organisation and is already making his mark with his energetic lead on our engagement with UK universities and the National Decommissioning Centre. In welcoming Callum back to the Board, we will once again benefit from his vast experience of both the late life/decommissioning sector and Decom North Sea itself. His understanding of the organisation and the crucial support he brings to the whole Board cannot be underestimated,” Nelson continues.

“Steven and Callum have joined a reinvigorated Board which is united in doing all it can to assist our members during these extremely challenging times, whilst being absolutely committed to driving the organisation forward,” adds Nelson.
