MEMBER NEWS: Peterson Energy Logistics appoints new Finance Director

Peterson Energy Logistics has announced the appointment of Christine Dodds to its leadership team as Finance Director.

She will lead the finance and shared services teams as the company rises to the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition and internationalisation.

Christine joins Peterson Energy Logistics from oil and gas exploration and production company Repsol, where she spent 13 years in a series of roles in financial reporting and business planning.

Born and raised in Aberdeen, she started her career in the city at Deloitte, before spending two years working for KPMG in the Cayman Islands.

Commenting on her appointment, Christine said: “I am very excited about what lies ahead and look forward to being part of a company whose values are so aligned with my own.

“As a family-owned business, Peterson Energy Logistics really cares about its people and strives to make a positive impact both in Aberdeen and the wider energy industry.

“I look forward to being part of the leadership team, helping to drive financial success and strategic growth from the company’s position as the key logistics partner for the energy transition.”

In addition to her role, Christine also sits on the OEUK Diversity & Inclusion taskforce and is involved with the Axis women’s network in Aberdeen.

Sarah Moore, CEO of Peterson Energy Logistics, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Christine to the team as our new Finance Director.

“She brings a wealth of professional experience and her impressive track record strengthens our leadership team as we continue to deliver safe, innovative and efficient logistics services for our customers globally.

“Christine joins at an exciting time for the business as we evolve our existing offering further to support the industry in achieving our shared sustainability targets on our collective journey towards net zero.”

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
