Xodus Group appoints Jones as decom lead
An experienced principal consultant and project manager, Mr Jones will be responsible for advising and supporting operators in relation to environmental and societal impacts associated with decommissioning.
Mr Jones joins Xodus from BMT Cordah where he led the company’s international decommissioning activities. Previously, he was a marine ecologist with Marine Scotland, providing advice and support in relation to commercial fisheries and marine fish species for oil and gas, renewables and infrastructure projects.
Mr Jones, who will be based in the company’s Aberdeen office, said: “(Xodus) has been at the forefront of solving a variety of decommissioning challenges for many years and I hope my skills will strengthen the team.”
Mr Jones will work closely with Xodus’ decommissioning director, Enrico Salardi, who has recently relocated to the UK from the company’s Perth office.
He said: “Throughout his career, Gareth has built up excellent relationships with operators, particularly on environmental and decommissioning projects, and communicates effectively with stakeholders. He has shown that he has all the attributes needed to be an asset for the company and we’re pleased he has joined Xodus.”
