Scottish Pipeline Industries Guild Appoints New Chairman

Subsea 7 UK Operations Director has been appointed as the new Chairman of the Scottish Branch of the Pipeline Industries Guild in the year it celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Andy Woolgar, who has been involved in the pipeline industry for 21 years, was confirmed in the position at a prestigious industry dinner at the Marriot Dalmahoy Hotel, near Edinburgh recently.

Woolgar succeeds David Briggs, also from Subsea 7, who has been involved with the Pipeline Industries Guild for more than 14 years. During that time, Briggs had been Chairman of the Aberdeen section on two occasions prior to being Chairman of the Scottish Branch.

The Pipeline Industries Guild brings together members with interests in pipelines world-wide, transporting hydrocarbon products, chemical, water, wastewater, and may other substances, both on and offshore.

"It was an honor to be nominated as Chairman of the Scottish Branch, and I'm looking forward to the forthcoming year," said Andy Woolgar. "The Pipeline Industries Guild is all about sharing knowledge, and I thoroughly endorse this. Their vision of the future is to broaden pipeline-engineering interests and continue to cater for the ever-widening horizons of its expanding membership."
