North Sea oil firm Neptune Energy has appointed a new head of exploration.
Gro Gunleiksrud Haatvedt, the current senior vice president for exploration at Aker BP, will take up the position as head of exploration in London.
Aker BP announced the news online, with Evy Glorstad-Clark being appointed their new SVP, starting from August 1.
Ms Glorstad-Clark has been with Aker BP since 2011 and is currently the Asset Development manager for the NOAKA (North of Alvheim and Askja-Krafla) area in the Norwegian North Sea.
Karl Johnny Hersvik, CEO of Aker BP said: “Evy has a strong managerial and professional track record. I am looking forward to welcoming her to my Executive team, and I am confident that she will be a valuable contributor to delivering on our ambitious exploration agenda.”
“I would like to express my gratitude to Gro for her invaluable effort for Aker BP in the past four years, and I wish her all the best in her new endeavors.“
Ms Haatvedt, coming to Neptune, has previously held senior positions at Statoil and Norsk Hydro.
Earlier this year the firm increased its footprint in the North Sea region with a near £4billion acquisition of French energy giant Engie’s exploration and production business.
The firm, which was set up in 2015, employs 1,800 people, including those at Engie House on North Esplanade West in Aberdeen.
Among its operated assets are the Cygnus field, the UK’s largest producing gas field, and Gjoa in Norway which exports gas to the St Fergus terminal.
As well as the North Sea, Neptune is active in areas including North Africa and Asia Pacific.
