North West 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 Chairperson and Secretary to deal with any queries you may have within your area.

Roy Peary

Chairman North West Section

Roy PearyRoy has been in the industry since 1976, starting with the North Western Gas Board as a Gas Engineering Technical Apprentice, based in Bolton. Following a promotion to the student apprenticeship scheme, he studied Gas Engineering at the University of Salford and graduated in 1981.

His career has mainly been focussed on operations within gas distribution, in various positions and locations within the North West area. In 2013, Roy took up his current position within National Grid, as a Design Assurance Specialist within the contract management and control section.

He said: "If you cut me half, I would have 'gas distribution' running through me like a stick of rock.

"I'm very much a 'hands on' engineer and I've brought that trait into my events programme this year with several visits to energy generation facilities."
