Sound Energy Appoints Ex-BG Exploration Lead

Europe and Africa focused upstream energy company Sound Energy plc has appointed Brian Mitchener as the company’s executive vice president of exploration.

Mitchener was previously regional general manager of exploration at BG Group plc and has over 35 years’ experience in exploration leadership across BG, Statoil and BP. In addition, Sound has appointed Leonardo Spicci, previously its managing director in Italy, as the new executive vice president of development and production.

Sound also intends to appoint a vice president of business development “in due course”.

"This is a pivotal time for the company as we initiate the drilling of our second well at Tendrara, with a view to proving a sub-horizontal drilling concept, finalize our plans for the outpost well at Tendrara, with a view to proving Tendrara's multi trillion cubic feet potential, and initiate the countdown to our second strategic play –Badile,” said James Parsons, Sound Energy's CEO.

“I am extremely pleased to welcome Brian Mitchener, a proven world class hydrocarbon finder. The Sound Energy team now has the depth of management to handle simultaneous wells and to ensure robust technical assurance at key decision gates,” he added.
