Bruce Alan Ian Dingwall, CBE
Bruce has over thirty years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, and is recognised locally and internationally for his business acumen and extensive industry knowledge. He is a Trinidad & Tobago national who is committed to the country’s development and to improving lives internationally. His vision for an oil and gas sector which benefits everyone is at the core of Trinity’s operations.
Bruce founded Trinity in 2005 with the acquisition of Venture Production plc’s Trinidadian assets. Venture’s success under his stewardship is well known around the world. On returning to the UK in 1996, Bruce saw that the oil and gas sector was ripe for structural change. To that end, he designed Venture around the central strategy of assisting the major operators in releasing value from assets that were, to them, no longer material. Venture was sold to Centrica for over £ 2 billion following a hostile takeover. At the time of the takeover Venture was producing 45,000 bopd and had reserves of 225 million barrels.
Bruce began his career with Exxon as a geophysicist in the North Sea before moving to Lasmo where he held numerous senior management roles in their South East Asian operations. He is a geologist and studied at Aberdeen University. Bruce Dingwall is an astute businessman, a humanitarian and a visionary, intent on promoting Trinidad & Tobago’s oil and gas sector as viable, lucrative and globally competitive investment option.
