3t Energy Group, a UK-based energy industry training services company, has appointed Chris Durling as its new finance director for its training division.

Durling comes to 3t Energy Group from EY, where he led the Aberdeen transactions business and EY’s focus on energy services in the UK.

Vice President of 3t Energy Group’s training division, Paul Knowles said: “We are delighted to welcome Chris to the senior management team at 3t Energy Group. He is extremely well known and well respected within the energy sector and will be an enormous asset to the Group moving forward. We are very much looking forward to benefitting from his proven financial acumen, drive, and energy.”
