He also was exploration manager of the central region from 1995-2002. Before joining Apache, he worked in various exploration and development geology assignments with Cotton Petroleum and Texaco in the Mid-Continent, Rockies, and China.

Faron J. Thibodeaux was promoted to vice-president and managing director in Australia. He joined Apache in 2008 and served most recently as director of operations in Australia. In 2011, Thibodeaux was transferred to Australia from Egypt, where he was the drilling manager. Prior to joining Apache, he worked for Chevron Corp. and Unocal Corp.

Timothy O. Wall will lead the initiative as president of Kitimat upstream operations. Wall has served as region vice-president and president of Apache Canada Ltd. since 2009. Prior to these Canadian leadership roles, Wall held several international positions for Apache Corp. In 2006, he was Australia region vice-president and managing director of Apache Energy Ltd.

Robert Spitzer will join the Kitimat upstream operations team as executive vice-president of development. Spitzer has held leadership positions in Apache's exploration program in Canada since joining the company in 1999.

Janine J. McArdle will continue as senior vice-president of gas monetization and president of Kitimat LNG. McArdle served as vice-president of oil and gas marketing from 2002-10, directing Apache's worldwide crude oil and gas marketing activities. Before joining Apache, she served in management positions with Aquila Europe Ltd., Aquila Energy Marketing, and Hesse Gas.
