Group Managing Director

Duncan has spent most of his 40 years in the oil and gas industry working on the development of offshore oil and gas. Throughout that time his main focus has been on the design, construction, installation and operation of floating production units.

A naval architect with a Master’s degree in offshore engineering, and a Master’s degree in business administration, he initially gained project experience with major contracting organisations such as Brown and Root and John Brown, before joining FPSO contractor Navion in Norway during the late 90’s as Commercial VP.

Following the sale of Navion’s FPSO business in 2001, Duncan returned to the UK to found Crondall Energy, and has led the growth of the Company from start-up to its current position as a market leading independent energy consultancy.

Duncan continues to combine his leadership role with the development of new technologies for the ocean energy sector and strategic consulting activities with major energy companies, contractors and banks. He speaks frequently at industry conferences and seminars around the world. He is Chairman of Lloyds Register Offshore Technical Committee.
