Europa Oil & Gas Holdings Plc (LON:EOG) has announced the appointment of a new chairman, with Simon Oddie to replace Colin Bousfield.

The company has also hired former Petroceltic boss Brian O’Cathain as a non-executive director.

“I am delighted to welcome Simon and Brian to the board,” said Hugh Mackay, Europa chief executive.

“They each bring substantial and relevant experience of upstream exploration and production along with first class technical and commercial expertise.

“As a result, their respective appointments neatly complement the existing board’s collective skillset.

“We are focused on our corporate performance and I am confident they will both play a key role in achieving future success for the company.
