General – Appointment
Danish engineering firm Ramboll has appointed Patrick Gilly, a former Managing Director of Total E&P Denmark as director to lead the green transition of its oil and gas services business.
“The green transition is high on the agenda in Ramboll. In the part of Ramboll that works with renewable energy, and also in the part where 280 offshore experts have worked with projects for the oil & gas sector. As times are changing, Ramboll is refocusing its traditional oil & gas services on the green transition of the oil & gas sector. Patrick Gilly will head this transition,” Ramboll said.
Chief Operation Officer in Ramboll Michael Simmelsgaard said: “The energy system of the future will be based on renewable energy and decarbonization technologies such as Carbon Capture & Storage, hydrogen, and Power-to-X. The oil & gas sector plays a vital role in creating this energy system.”
“It controls part of the infrastructure, has technology know-how, and possesses the financial muscle required. Patrick Gilly has in-depth knowledge of the oil & gas sector and knows what it takes to help it move in a greener direction. I am convinced that Patrick is the right person to drive the transition of our services that we are going through.”
Gilly, who until March 2020 was the Managing Director of Total E&P Denmark and since then has had his own consultancy, will join Ramboll on September 1.
