The Annual General Meeting which was held remotely for the first time in OSRL’s history on June 11th, 2020 the following changes to the Directors of OSRL were approved:

• Brian Horsburgh from Shell has reached the end of his term limits as a Band 1 Director and resigned as a Band 1 Director. Due to Brian’s extensive Shipping and Maritime knowledge the board asked him to stand for election as an Independent Director.  Brian agreed to this request and was appointed as an Independent Director during the AGM.

• Given this Mr Eric Daflon, an Independent Director has duly resigned from the board. 

• Mr André Goffart has taken up the position as a Band 1 Director.  André is a very experienced and knowledgeable having worked for Total for 38 years, including 20 years in international postings.  He is currently Special Advisor to the Arnaud Breuillac, President of Exploration and Production. After having spent the initial third of his career in Drilling and Wells, he fulfilled different management roles. It included the position of Director of Angola Block 17, one of the major Deepwater assets of the industry. He was for the last 5 years the Senior Vice President for Development and Support to Operations and a member of Total E&P Board of Directors. He was also President of Total Well Response which included their Oil Spill Response organisation.  André experience will be most valuable to OSRL and the Board, given his Drilling and Wells background, he will also become a member of the SWISCom Sub-Committee.
