  • 1. INFORMATION FROM For Immediate Release: January 2011 AWE’S EMPLOYEE GETS INDUSTRY RECOGNITION AWE’s Keith Warburton (Lead Engineer for natural gas) enjoyed a double celebration recently – being nominated for a top award and securing a new role within the gas industry. Keith, a member of the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers and the Emergency Planning Society’s Southern branch, was short-listed for the Gas Industry Safety Group (GISG) ‘Decade of Excellence’ Individual Contribution to Safety Award. The nominations were judged by a panel which included members of the All Party Parliamentary Gas Safety Group, GISG and other leading gas safety specialists, including Judith Hackitt, chairwoman of the Health and Safety Executive. Working as the Lead Engineer for natural gas at AWE, Keith’s name was put forward for the accolade in recognition of his dedication, diligence and leadership of the natural gas process at AWE. After taking up his post in May 2006, he has subsequently led the development and implementation of a fully encompassing suite of in-house documentation that successfully integrates the UK’s natural gas industry standards and requirements within AWE’s nuclear site licence requirements. The policies and procedures deliver a high level of assurance to AWE and provide effective governance for the design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of their natural gas networks and ancillary natural gas plant and equipment. Despite just missing out on winning the award, Keith did not walk away empty handed as he has been invited to sit as a Board Director of the GISG.

Steve Fussey, AWE’s Acting Director Site, said: “This appointment reflects Keith’s professionalism, his level of expertise and the high regard to which Keith is held within the UK’s natural gas industry.” Keith said: “It is a great honour to represent the UK Gas Industry on a European platform and I look forward very much to meeting the many challenges along the way.” ENDS Caption: …….
