A new appointment has been made to the board of LGO.
Fergus Jenkins will join the board after two years as the company’s chief operating officer.
Mr Jenkins is a chartered engineer with more than 20 years’ experience working initially in mining before moving into petroleum.
He has worked in a variety of technical and increasingly senior managerial positions in mid-sized independent oil companies, including Enterprise Oil, LASMO, OMV (UK) Ltd and Afren plc and serves currently as Technical Director of the AIM-traded Solo Oil plc.
Neil Ritson, LGO chief executive, said: “We are delighted to welcome Fergus to the board of LGO. Fergus has been at the centre of the development of the company in Trinidad and especially in the recent drilling at the Goudron Field and it is fitting that he now joins the board to continue his pivotal role in the operations of the company.”
