Neptune Energy today announced the appointment of Pierre Girard to the newly-created role of Director of New Energy.
Neptune announced in August the formation of a New Energy team to scale partnerships and investments in low carbon technologies, particularly hydrogen, CCS and electrification.
Pierre is currently Director of Commercial and Joint Ventures, UK, and previously held the role of Interim Managing Director of Neptune’s UK business. He has more than 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, having held senior roles at Elf, Chevron and Engie in France, Angola, Egypt and the UK, and has a background in Petroleum Engineering and Reservoir Engineering.
David Hemmings, VP, Business Development and Commercial, said: “Neptune is well-positioned to play a role in the energy transition. Our differentiated, long-life, low cost and lower carbon intensity portfolio enables us to generate value, even in a lower price environment.
“Our creation of a New Energy team and increased focus on ESG will enable us to increase the role we play in the energy transition, by scaling-up partnerships and investment in hydrogen, CCS and offshore electrification to further reduce carbon emissions.
“Pierre brings to the new role a wealth of commercial and strategic experience and will develop our portfolio strategy to efficiently extend the life of valuable infrastructure, while scaling-up low carbon development opportunities.”
