Ralph Watson

Technical Consultant & Elected Trustee for Accord Employee Ownership Trust

Ralph has worked in the oil and gas industry since 1981, gaining considerable experience in all aspects of Hydrocarbon Allocation & Accounting systems in both the UK and overseas before joining Accord in December 2011 as a Hydrocarbon Accounting Advisor progressing to a position of Technical Consultant.

In recent times Ralph has been directly associated with the development, implementation and operation of Hydrocarbon Accounting Systems.  He has both operational and commercial system wide experience from upstream operations and processing through to downstream scheduling and marketing. 

Since joining Accord Ralph has used his skills and experience on a number of projects including secondments with Apache North Sea, Ithaca Energy and West Coast Gas Ghana, providing commercial, development, implementation and operation support.

More recently Ralph has represented Accord Energy Solutions and presented at allocation training workshops and forums.  Additionally he has undertaken a company QHSE role providing internal Auditing support and updating the company’s Quality Management System.

Ralph has recently been elected to the position of Trustee to represent his colleagues on the Employee Ownership Trust (EOT).

“As I had previously worked with many of the current Accord employees, it felt only natural to continue my career journey with Accord.  The company’s ethos and its unique position as one of the first employee owned companies from start-up was equally appealing to me. Being part of a team where transparency of the business is regularly disseminated at all levels, where everyone is openly encouraged to have a voice and the potential to become involved in many interesting and diverse opportunities, is a rare but satisfying combination and one which often does not exist in the larger corporate driven Oil & Gas multi-nationals.”
