Oil & Gas UK is saddened to learn of the loss of former Aberdeen MP Frank Doran. Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive of Oil & Gas UK, said:
“We are saddened to learn of the death of the former Aberdeen MP Frank Doran. With his passing we lose a strong defender of the oil and gas industry and its workers.
“His was a highly influential voice, one that was never shy in challenging the industry, particularly in the wake of the Piper Alpha disaster as Labour’s energy spokesman between 1988-1992 or in his many years of service as treasurer of the All Party Parliamentary Group for oil and gas. He routinely held the industry’s safety performance to account – and helped strengthen it as a result.
“We send our deepest condolences to his wife, Joan and his family.”
