HOUSTON, Mar. 16 -- Toreador Resources Corp. has made several appointments within its exploration and production division.

The company has appointed Michael J. FitzGerald executive vice-president, E&P.

Previously Fitzgerald served as Toreador's senior vice-president, E&P. He joined the company in late 2001 as part of the acquisition of Madison Oil Co., which he cofounded and served as vice-president, exploration, since 1992. Before that, he worked for Triton Energy Corp., Dallas, for more than 10 years. He began his career as an exploration geologist for Texaco Inc. in New Orleans in 1972.

Edward Ramirez, Toreador's vice-president, technical, was promoted to senior vice-president, E&P, succeeding Fitzgerald. Ramirez joined Toreador in 2001, also as part of the acquisition of Madison, which he joined in 1993. He began his career as an interpretation geophysicist with Mobil Oil Corp. in 1974, working primarily on evaluation of seismic data in East Asia and the Gulf of Mexico. He joined Triton Energy Corp. in 1980 and served as a geophysicist and geophysical manager through 1989. After that, he served as an international marketing manager and international coordinator at Schlumberger-Geco-Prakla in Houston.

William J. Moulton, currently senior international geophysicist, was appointed vice-president, technical, succeeding Ramirez. Prior to joining Toreador earlier this year, he was a consultant to Toreador on the South Akcakoca Subbasin project in the Turkish Black Sea since mid-2004. He has been working as a geophysical consultant since 2000. Prior to that, he served as manager of advanced imaging services for Geotrace Technologies. He has previously worked for Snyder Oil Corp. (now Devon Energy Corp.) and Enserch Exploration Co. (now Newfield Exploration Co.) as an exploration geophysicist.
