Directorate Changes

Appointment of Independent Non-Executive Director

 

United Oil & Gas PLC (AIM: "UOG"), the growing oil and gas company with a portfolio of production, development, exploration and appraisal assets is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Tom Hickey as an Independent Non-Executive Director with effect from 1 January 2021.

Tom Hickey is known across the oil and gas industry and beyond as a significant contributor to the success of Tullow Oil plc ("Tullow") in his role as CFO from 2000-08.  During this time he was central to the successful conclusion of major acquisitions and exploration discoveries which helped shape that company into a leading Independent oil and gas exploration and production company.  He developed and implemented the financial strategy which saw Tullow grow from a micro-cap company to a FTSE 100 business valued at $15bn.

Tom is currently CEO of Boru Energy Limited ("Boru"), the West African focussed private oil and gas company, which is supported by The Carlyle Group.

In addition to his work with Boru and Tullow, Tom has served on the Boards of a number of oil and gas businesses, building experience in finance and operations in projects across the globe, including markets in which United currently participate.

Tom is a Commerce graduate of University College Dublin and a Fellow of the Irish Institute of Chartered Accountants.

Alberto Cattaruzza will step down from the Board on 31 December 2020, having served as a Non-Executive Director of United Oil and Gas since its listing as United Oil and Gas in 2017.  Alberto was an important part of the team that supported the original listing of United through the reverse takeover of Senterra Energy plc, where he was a director. 

 

Graham Martin, Chairman of United Oil and Gas said:

"I am delighted to welcome Tom Hickey to the Board of United Oil and Gas.  He brings substantial experience in the oil and gas industry and in particular of constructing, financing and executing transformational deals.

"Tom will chair our Audit Committee and will sit on our AIM Compliance and Remuneration Committees, further strengthening our governance in these regards. 

"I would like to thank Alberto for his contribution to the listing and growth of United.  His input was important at this formative time in the company's development and those of us who have served with him appreciate his energy and positive approach.

"In the last 12 months we have significantly strengthened our board, bringing in leaders with a globally acknowledged track record in this sector.  These additions to our team not only deliver sound counsel to our management, they also increase the already impressive network of contacts which the business can engage with. They are also a further indication of the ambition of this Company.  Our Board is now well positioned to drive the growth that we know is possible from our assets and our team."
