Written by  OE Staff Tuesday, 17 October 2017 01:21

A former production asset manager based in Kurdistan, Iraq, has joined the UK's oil and gas industry regultaor, the Oil and Gas Authority, as head of Decommissioning.

Nils Cohrs is replacing the Acting Head of Decommissioning Gunther Newcombe, who will continue in his permanent role as Operations Director.

Nils was Shaikan asset manager for Gulf Keystone Petroleum in Kurdistan until October last year. Before that he was an asset manager for Taqa, also in Iraq. He's also worked for Centrica, Wintershall and Shell in production and well servicing roles. 

Newcombe said: "Nils has a wealth of industry experience gained over the last 35 years, both in the UK and overseas, including as OIM on the Brent platform. He has knowledge of carbon capture and gas storage, asset and business management and a solid understanding of decommissioning."

Nils, whose most recent role was as Production and Asset Manager in Kurdistan Iraq, added: "I am really excited to be joining the OGA and look forward to working with industry and government in improving the efficiency and reducing the cost of decommissioning."
