Industry mourns passing of Brooke Arnot

Oil and gas industry professional and Petroleum Club of WA governor Brooke Arnot has passed away after a battle with cancer.

Ms Arnott, who was originally from Scotland, was diagnosed with bowel cancer a year ago and passed away in late December.

She was educated in engineering and accounting at Edinburgh Napier University, and later moved to Perth, but returned home while fighting the illness.

Ms Arnot served in a number of roles in Australia, including as a recruitment manager at Walker Technical Consultants and then as a client manager at the Australiasian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference.

She joined the Petroleum Club board of governors in 2016.

In family life, Ms Arnot had a young daughter, Zahra.

Petroleum Club president Paul Stone wrote to members today and said she had fought her illness courageously.

“Brooke was such a delight to work with; her brilliance, passion and energy saw her contribute immensely not only to our club but to the entire petroleum industry,” Mr Stone said.

“Brooke will be dearly missed and will remain in our hearts and thoughts of all of us at the Petroleum Club of WA.”

Family and friends will hold a ceremony in her honour in City Beach on January 31, while her funeral will be in her hometown of Edinburgh on January 17.
