Tom Windle CEO of WHAM Energy said,

"We are delighted to have Andrew join WHAM Energy plc. His in-depth knowledge of the Southern North Sea and other UK Continental Shelf hydrocarbon basins will enhance our expertise and further strengthen our technical evaluations.

"Apart from assisting in the technical evaluations on our existing licenses, Andrew will also co-ordinate our future exploration initiatives identifying prospective acreage in the forthcoming 24th license round. We believe his previous involvement in the technically demanding process of license rounds will add considerable weight to the team at WHAM. I have known Andrew for many years and we are delighted that he chose to join us. He is well known to both me and my colleagues and has previously worked with Alex Strong who joined us in October 2005.
