Independent energy services company, AGR has appointed Scott Paton as Head of Finance for its UK, Mediterranean, and Africa operations. Scott will be based in Aberdeen and will report to Andrew Stannard, AGR’s Executive Vice President UK/Med/Africa Regions, also located in Aberdeen.
Scott Paton commented:
“As the leading provider of engineering solutions across the oil and gas asset lifecycle, AGR is uniquely positioned to find efficiencies that contribute to safe well project delivery while at the same time resulting in viable commercial operations. That’s why I’m so excited to be joining AGR at exactly the right time in their development as we look to further utilise our three decades of well management and subsurface expertise not only on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) but across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.”
Scott comes to AGR on the back of a 25-year career in finance, much of it based in Aberdeen and in the oil and gas and maritime sectors. His previous roles (among others) include executive and senior management positions at Sodexo, Lloyds Register, DOF (UK) Ltd, Seatronics Ltd and Intermoor Ltd, the last two being businesses of Acteon Group.
Scott is also a Qualified Member and Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
AGR has been based in Aberdeen since 1997 when its predecessor, Peak Group, was established in the Granite City. Recent work coming out of the firm’s Aberdeen office include decommissioning work on the Kinsale field offshore Ireland and the CNOOC-operated Buzzard Phase II (BPII) development project.
