Carnarvon’s chairman Peter Leonhardt said: “We warmly welcome Gavin to the board and look

forward to his contribution at a time of incredible growth in the company.

“As we focus on a number of developments in the business we felt the need to strengthen the legal and commercial skills of the board.”

The company is drilling two wells at the Phoenix project on the North West Shelf and is also active at the Buffalo project in the territorial waters of Timor Leste.

Ryan has experience in government dealings, production sharing contract negotiations and oil field construction projects.


Leonhardt added: “Gavin’s experience in oil field developments is particularly relevant and coincidently with him working on the Buffalo oil field whilst at BHP Petroleum.

“Gavin has also been involved in industry-related operations in the Timor Sea which we see as also being relevant to our plans in that area.”

Impressed with regional focus

Ryan said he had been impressed with the Carnarvon team’s strong regional focus and project portfolio.

“The company has demonstrated a performance and culture that appeals and I believe will stand it in good stead for the future.

“I look forward to contributing to that future and meeting with the shareholders at the forthcoming annual general meeting,” he said.
