Menno Snel will join Hague Corporate Affairs as a partner on 1 February 2023, as he steps down as the Chairman of Element NL. Menno served as the first independent chairman of NOGEPA — and later Element NL — from June 2021.
He helped reposition the association and launch Element NL's Action Agenda during his tenure. The industry continues to supply the Netherlands with energy thanks to safe and responsible oil and gas production as we move towards a carbon-neutral future. The Action Agenda also looks to the future and the role of gas and the sector in the energy transition. Accordingly, the Agenda includes goals in the fields of CO2 reduction, CO2 storage, human capital, hydrogen, and the re-use and re-purposing of existing infrastructure.
"I thank Menno for his commitment to Element NL," said Lex de Groot, Vice Chairman of Element NL and Managing Director of Neptune Energy Netherlands. "We wish him every success in his new role at Hague Corporate Affairs."
Menno will be gradually handing over his duties in the coming period.
