DNV GL – Oil & Gas has appointed Ben Oudman as Regional Manager for continental Europe, Eurasia, Middle East, India and Africa to assist the company’s efforts to help the industry overcome barriers to progress.

“The future energy mix is likely to look very different from region to region within the geographies under my remit. In my new role, I look forward to leading an exceptional team of experts who will continue to give our customers the foresight and support they need to succeed in the years ahead,” said Mr. Oudman.

Mr. Oudman added: “While Western Europe is rapidly embracing the energy transition across the value chain, the focus in Eastern Europe and in Russia is on gas as the fuel of choice, with security of supply a key concern. There we see significant investments in transnational pipeline projects such as TANAP and TAP. In the East Mediterranean, recent developments off the coast of Egypt, Cyprus, Israel and Lebanon are some of the main drivers of oil and gas activities in the area, along with the rise of LNG. On the other hand, the markets in India and Africa are focused on fueling the growing energy needs through challenging deepwater offshore projects and gas to power investments.”

Mr. Oudman took up the new position on 1 January. He joins the Executive Leadership Team for DNV GL’s Oil & Gas business area, leading a team of experts serving a diverse range of oil and gas clients from Portugal to India and Russia. DNV GL’s regional head office will remain in Milan, Italy.
