Job Title: Executive Officer, Head of Oil & Gas

David Cook joined TAQA in October 2010 following over 20 years’ experience in upstream and midstream businesses at Amoco, BP, and TNK-BP. Prior to joining TAQA, Cook was VP for BP Russia, responsible for BP’s non-TNK-BP E&P.

He has taken the reins at TAQA’s oil & gas division at an interesting time, as the company plows further investment into the North Sea, while making a $46 million play in Kurdistan through an investment in WesternZagros.

Speaking to Oil & Gas Middle East late last year, Cook said “in the last 18 months to two years we have been working really hard to get things on track for delivering the kind of business that we want this to be.”
