Newly-launched decommissioning company Well-Safe Solutions said it will expand its senior team with the appointment of Jim Christie as director of programmes.

Formerly head of decommissioning with the Oil and Gas Authority, Christie has 35 years’ experience in oil and gas, civil engineering, construction, refining, power, transportation and ship-building with extensive expertise in offshore decommissioning in the US and the UK, working with owners, regulators and the supply chain.

As head of decommissioning for the OGA, Jim was responsible for the development of the UK’s decommissioning strategy, working in collaboration with the industry and government. “As we seek to work hand-in-hand with the regulator to support operators in navigating the complex regulatory process, with a view to driving change and transparency while ensuring tax efficiency, Jim’s experience will be invaluable to our team,” founder and executive director, Mark Patterson, said.
