Alick McIntosh, Commercial Director
Alick is a commodity trader and, with Cumbria Energy Ltd, was one of the first independent traders of emissions credits in the UK Emissions Trading Scheme.
Alick started his career in energy as part of a team at Mobil North Sea Limited. His role was to look after the commercial side of Mobil North Seaís assets in the central North Sea. It was during this time at Mobil that he established invaluable relationships with Enterprise, Veba, Lasmo and other North Sea producers.
Alick then co-founded Quantum Energy Group where he was responsible for obtaining Quantumís Shippers Licence and a transportation agreement with British Gas. In early 1996 he negotiated Quantumís first gas management deal with Enterprise Oil and, using this deal as a template, subsequently negotiated a number of others, the largest being with Veba Oil, now part of EON. He was also responsible for the acquisition of Vector Gas from Scottish Hydro and Marathon in 1997.
Alick established and managed the gas trading team whose remit was to manage the supply and demand of the companyís portfolio. This involved ensuring that the company was balanced on a spot and forward basis, managing a 24-hour team and looking for opportunities around the companyís storage assets.
Alick has been involved in the emissions markets since 2002 and was a founding director of ICECAP. He is head of trading and responsible for ICECAPís commercial affairs. Tel:
