Flemming Horn Nielsen is Dong Energy’s country manager for Danish oil activity and a member of the new trade organization Oil Gas Denmark, which wants to unify the Danish oil and gas industry interests. Nielsen looks forward to working for the new organization, in which he hopes to be a part of the effort to break away from the oil industry’s image, which has so far been invisible at best and extremely negative at worst, says Nielsen to ShippingWatch.
“I believe that this is clearly a branding issue for the industry. I am not talking about marketing, but it is important for us to increase, to a greater extent, the most significant interests’ factual knowledge of the industry. I have met a lot of politicians and interest groups, and it is clear to me that previously, we have not been adequately adept at relating the industry’s challenges or its economic contribution to society,” says Flemming Horn Nielsen.
