The appointment marks a new chapter in the company’s journey of growth through the energy transition.
Daniel McAteer joined Worley in October 2019 as the Head of Project Management before taking over the role of Vice President for the Aberdeen Energy Hub. Daniel’s predecessor, Shaun Poll has led the business since 2018 and is now supporting the company’s wider energy transition strategy, leading key carbon capture opportunities.
Prior to joining Worley, Daniel held senior leadership positions both in the UK and internationally over more than 20 years. Starting his career with an MEng in Manufacturing Engineering and Management, Daniel held a range of project management positions across several major defense programmes. He then moved into the energy industry where he has successfully led major EPC projects and implemented corporate strategies to migrate businesses from oil and gas into new energy.
“I am delighted Daniel will be moving into the position of Vice President to lead the business in Aberdeen,” said Shaun Poll “Daniel’s vision is to drive the business beyond the energy transition and deliver the most sustainable outcomes both locally and globally.
“Our oil and gas portfolio will remain at the core of the business. I have every confidence he will further develop our capabilities while ensuring Worley is a leader in the energy transition and technology partner of choice in the UK Continental Shelf and beyond.”
Worley has combined its energy businesses for the UK, Norway, Central Asia & Eastern Europe under the one division. This brings together energy expertise across a diverse group to drive efficiencies, innovation and best practice. This includes Worley’s Rosenberg shipyard in Norway and fabrication business in Grimsby.
On his new role, Daniel McAteer commented, “I am thrilled to take on the role as the new Aberdeen Vice President and lead the business through the next period of growth. Our global capability, particularly in the areas of digital, hydrogen and carbon capture, means we’re well-placed to support our customers through Road Map 2035.
“We are currently working on several decomplexing projects. This involves transitioning assets from normally staffed to not permanently staffed installations. We’re also delivering front-end projects to repurpose existing offshore assets to support future developments.”
McAteer is firmly focused on the future of the energy industry and creating a sustainable future both locally and globally .
“I believe the next chapter of the UK Continental Shelf is going to be very exciting. We’re still focused on oil and gas in the short to medium term, and our longer-term vision is about helping our customers to thrive in a low-carbon future.”
