Nigel Underwood (pictured) joins the company from Petrofac, where he was consultancy manager. He has also previously worked as a consultant with Xodus in Perth, and will now oversee Xodus’ international subsea and pipelines work, from concept through to design and delivery.
“It’s great to be back with this fantastic integrated team. From my previous time at Xodus, I know how many great people are here and the company has gone from strength to strength in the time I’ve been away developing into a true energy consultancy,” he says.
“I’m obviously joining at a time where many businesses in the energy sector are facing tough decisions, however I know we have some of the greatest minds in the industry who have the ability to deliver the best advice, always putting our clients’ needs first.”
Rebecca Hewlett, Xodus’ operations director for London & the Middle East, adds: “Nigel has extensive experience across subsea and pipelines projects ranging from concept to decommissioning. He has also supported many energy producers, finance houses and legal firms for expert witness, due diligence and assurance scopes throughout his career.
“There’s been a trend of several former employees re-join us recently which reinforces the positive culture Xodus promotes and we’re happy to have Nigel back leading our subsea and pipelines team in London.”
