HOUSTON, July 13 -- Gary R. Heminger has been appointed executive vice-president of Marathon Oil Corp.

He was named vice-president, business development, for MAP upon its formation Jan. 1, 1998, and a year later was named senior vice-president, business development.
In January 2001, Heminger was named MAP executive vice-president, supply, transportation, and marketing.
