Lloyd's Register Consulting is proud to announce that Magne Ognedal, former Director of the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has become the latest associate to join LR Consulting.
Known as "Mr Safety" throughout the international oil and gas industry, Magne Ognedal is highly regarded for the extensive work he has done in setting the agenda for improved safety, having received the Knight First Class of the Royal Norwegian Order of St Olav, the Dutch Knight of the Orange Nassau Order and ONS’ Distinguished Service Award.
Ognedal, although retired from his Directorial position at the PSA, is still an active promoter and agenda-setter in many international forums, including the regional North Sea Offshore Authorities ' Forum (NSOAF), an association of safety authorities responsible for activities in the North Sea basin.
“His experience and professional network is immense, and being associated with him will both open new doors and further strengthen our credibility and capability" says Bjørn Inge Bakken, CEO/SVP in Lloyd's Register Consulting.
In addition to being an associated consultant, he will also act as a member of the Lloyd's Register Energy Advisory Committee, a group of senior executives in the international energy industry who meet regularly to give their input to the Lloyd's Register strategy.
