The Energy Industries Council (EIC), the leading trade association for UK companies that supply goods and services to the energy industries worldwide, has announced the appointment of Bechtel’s Manager of Procurement Operations, Andrew Cuniah to its Board of Directors.
Andrew is a procurement specialist with over 30 years of oil and gas industry experience, 20 of which have been with global engineering, construction and project management company Bechtel.
Currently based in London and responsible for supply chain activities in the region, Andrew’s career has seen him work on high profile projects around the world including the Reliance Jamnagar Refinery in India, the Borouge project in the UAE, the TPX Revamp Refinery Upgrade and SPRC Clean Fuels projects in Thailand. Closer to home, Andrew also worked as the Systemwide Materials Control Manager for the iconic Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
In addition to leading the company’s procurement activities in London, Andrew is also actively involved in Bechtel tenders, and has worked on a number of high-profile successful bids for Bechtel.
Commenting on Andrew’s appointment, EIC CEO Stuart Broadley said, ‘Having Andrew on the EIC Board is great news for our member companies. As a procurement specialist for one of the world’s biggest contractors he knows what major players look for in a partner so is perfectly placed to guide our members on how to win work on projects around the world. Also, with his 30 years of international O&G experience, Andrew has an incredible network of contacts, and has already helped us to secure several senior industry figures from global energy companies to speak at our EIC Connect Oil & Gas UAE supply chain conference and exhibition which recently took place in Abu Dhabi in May.’
Speaking about his new role on the EIC Board Andrew Cuniah said, ‘Bechtel couldn’t do the incredible work we do on complex projects around world without the support of our suppliers and sub-contractors. Being a part of the EIC gives me the opportunity to work with supply chain companies and advise how the EIC can help them to develop work with major contractors like Bechtel.’
