Hurricane Energy Appoints New Non-Executive Chairman

UK based oil and gas company Hurricane Energy plc has appointed Steven McTiernan as its new non-executive chairman, effective May 1. 

David Jenkins, who has acted as interim chairman of the board since November 2017, will return to his previous role as senior independent director when McTiernan adopts his new role.

McTiernan has over forty-five years of oil and gas industry and investment banking experience. He was previously a non-executive director of Tullow Oil plc for eleven years until December 2012 and is currently chairman of Kenmare Resources, a mining company listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

“I am delighted to welcome Steven to the board of Hurricane as non-executive chairman,” Robert Trice, chief executive of Hurricane Energy, said in a company statement.

“This is an extremely important time for the company as we progress towards first oil on Lancaster in H1 2019,” he added.

Hurricane’s David Jenkins said it was a great pleasure to welcome a chairman of McTiernan’s calibre to the company.  

“I look forward to working with him as we transition to the next phase of the company’s development,” Jenkins said in a company statement.
