Irish Section

IGEM has a network of Sections that enhances membership by offering a local perspective and enabling involvement with issues in and around the gas industry. The Sections are run by volunteers who organise a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events and networking opportunities.

Each Section has its own Chair and Secretary to deal with any queries you may have within your area.

Denver Wasson

Irish Section Chair

Denver WassonDenver is a Chartered Engineer with IGEM working for Phoenix Natural Gas (PNG), based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. After completing a Mechanical Engineering Degree at Queens University in 2003, he joined the Phoenix Natural Gas engineering team in 2004 and has held various roles in network design, construction and control room operations. In 2013, he became the Asset Manager for PNG, before taking on his current role of Network Performance Manager in February 2015. At present, he is heavily involved with the development of the PNG asset management system and is leading the team responsible for aligning PNG with ISO 55001. As Chair, Denver has several paper evenings and two technical visits planned for the coming year. The first visit will be a tour of the Montupet natural gas fuelled casting facility in August. This is where complex cast parts for the automotive industry are manufactured and the facility is located in the original factory where the DeLorean Motor Company was once based. The second technical visit will be to a biomethane facility in the first quarter of 2016. He said: "As Irish Section Chair, I intend to promote professional grade membership as a key engineering competency across the Irish gas sector, and to encourage more Section involvement in the various IGEM technical committees. "I hope to continue the growth of IGEM membership within Ireland."
