Biographical Information

"Mr Seymour is a geologist with over 40 years of experience in the upstream oil & gas industry, starting with Burmah Oil in Australia where he was actively involved in the giant gas discoveries made in the early 1970s on the Northwest Shelf. After periods with Conoco and Kerr McGee, in the case of the latter heading up their first UK office after the discoveries of Brae and Beatrice, he has since 1980 been managing small companies focusing on the geology of specific areas. His companies include Moray Petroleum (bought by Saxon), Teredo Petroleum (bought by Cairn), Medusa Oil & Gas (bought by Ramco) and Aurelian Oil & Gas. Medusa and Aurelian have both focused totally on Central Europe, an area which Mr Seymour has been working in since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Although he has ceased to have any executive role in Aurelian, Mr Seymour remained as President of the Polish Oil Operators' Association until late 2011. Besides Trajan, Mr Seymour is a non-executive director of Mediterranean Oil & Gas Plc" [1]
