Peel Gas & Oil makes senior shale gas hire

Peel Gas & Oil has expanded its team with the appointment of Tony Smith as commercial strategy manager.

Joining from SLR Consulting where he led the development of business strategy, including environmental services relating to shale gas, Smith brings more than 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas sector to the team.

He will strengthen Peel Gas & Oil’s offer as a development partner to shale gas licence holders, helping to speed up delivery and de-risk investment via the company’s skills and assets in land, infrastructure and utilities.

Myles Kitcher, managing director of Peel Gas & Oil, said: “Tony’s encyclopaedic knowledge of the industry and enviable experience of the market mean he will be a valued addition to our team.

“He joins us at an exciting time for the industry, as a swathe of new shale licences are due to be offered across the country. Our focus must now be to overcome the industry’s challenges and foster a connected approach that will deliver progress and stimulate a thriving supply chain in the UK.”
