Andy Scott

“After benefitting from learning so much during my own career from colleagues, I then found coaching and mentoring my own staff to be very rewarding. Conducting training with MDT has provided a continuation of the great satisfaction watching students develop while knowing that I have a unique opportunity to pass on some of that accumulated knowledge and experience.”

I have over 35 years of Oil & Gas industry experience having gained practical, hands-on petroleum accounting knowledge whilst working internationally in the UK, Asia, Algeria and Equatorial Guinea. I spent 25 years with Amerada Hess/Hess in a variety of accounting and commercial roles before setting up Hess’s new operation in Kuala Lumpur and becoming VP Finance in Indonesia. As CFO of Mitra Energy my role covered all finance and administration aspects of an international exploration company. Most recently I spent three years as general manager of a Joint Venture with Sonatrach, the Algeria national oil company, which broadened my knowledge of petroleum operations.

I come from a close-knit, large family and gain great enjoyment from supporting my children as they progress through life.
