How We're Structured

Steering Group and other committees

Capturing the Energy's organisational structure

Capturing the Energy is run by a Commercial & Strategy Group, which provides governance, financial management and oversight for the project, and directs the work of two sub-groups (Archives & Collections and Marketing & Communications).

These groups are overseen by the project’s Steering Group, which is made up of representatives from operating companies, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University, heritage organisations, and individuals with an interest in the industry's history.

Please see the groups' Terms of Reference for more information, and if you are interested in joining the Steering Group, please contact the Secretary, Miles Oglethorpe.

Oil & Gas UK generously supported the appointment of a Development Officer to work on the project, based at the University of Aberdeen. The position was held by Katy Johnson and Joe Chapman between 2013 and 2018.
