NorSea Group (UK) Limited has established a new executive team to lead the company’s growing activity across Scotland.

Walter Robertson has been appointed Managing Director while Mike Munro becomes the company’s first Operations Director.

Walter has 30 years’ experience in the logistics sector and was appointed MD following an extensive period of consultancy with the company.

Prior to that, he had a 28 year career with the ASCO Group at Managing Director level.

From 1998 to 2006, as MD of Enviroco Ltd, he oversaw the establishment and running of the company which was set up as a joint venture to provide environmentally focused waste management solutions to the UK Oil and Gas industry.

As Operations Director, Mike will be responsible for all operational activity at NorSea Group (UK)’s logistics bases at Aberdeen, Montrose, Peterhead and Scrabster harbours.

He has a wealth of marine and logistics experience at senior level on projects in the UK and overseas.

Prior to joining NorSea Group he spent seven years with Peterson (United Kingdom) Limited, as Divisional Operations Manager based in Aberdeen but spent a lot of time developing the company’s overseas business in the international market.

Having spent 23 years with Total E&P, Mike spent eight years in the Middle-east with Qatar Petroleum before returning to Aberdeen.

“Despite the current market conditions, we are excited about the opportunities for growth and development that are being presented to NorSea Group (UK),” said Walter.

“We have already secured a major decommissioning contract, which is being serviced through our deep-water support base at Smith Quay in Peterhead, this being a first for North-East Scotland.

“We are actively tendering for other opportunities in this growing sector of the market,” he said.

Mike added: “I’m looking forward to working with Walter to develop NorSea Group’s decommissioning activity. From our four principal bases we are well placed to support projects right around the north and east coasts from the area West of Shetland right through the Northern and Central North Sea.”

NorSea Group (UK) was established as the UK wing of its Norwegian parent company NorSea Group in 2013.
