Cultural Change Champion

Cultural Change Champion

Early in 2017 Steve Phimister, VP and Director, Shell UK was appointed Industry Cultural Change Champion.  The requirement for cultural change across the UKCS was identified in the Wood Review and while the OGA has seen some excellent examples of collaboration, there are, however, still some instances of poor behaviours which may act as a barrier to MER UK.

The role of the Industry Cultural Change Champion alongside the task forces leaders, is to act as a catalyst for behavioural change to embed, sustain and accelerate the cultural change of the industry through the integration, prioritisation and sponsorship of change activities.

Industry Behavioural Guidelines for Creating Quality Area Plans

Industry is tasked with leading the development and delivery of Area Plans. The OGA estimates that effective use of Area Plans has the potential to unlock ~4 billion barrels of resources. Area Plans require numerous participants, with different interests, to collaborate on a shared long-term view of the optimal way to achieve MER UK in a specific set of circumstances. Success will require new ways of working – the eight critical behaviours described in the Collaborative Behaviour Quantification Tool (CBQT) are key enablers. As a result, industry has come together and created Guidelines, below, to help those involved in Area Plans to apply these eight behaviours. The Guidelines highlight the importance of working with trust, transparency and momentum to explore new ideas and thereby establish and sustain an “Area Plan with MER UK Focus” mindset. The Guidelines aim to help participants set up for success by providing advice, sharing insights from existing Area Plan groups, and signposting relevant tools and resources. The Guidelines have been developed with the support of the OGA and Oil & Gas UK.
