BP America appoints Minge to chairman, president

BP America Inc. has appointed John Minge as chairman and president effective Feb. 15. Minge will serve as BP’s chief representative in the US. He succeeds Lamar McKay who has been appointed to head BP’s upstream business.

Minge has led BP Alaska since January 2009, where he is responsible for BP’s Alaskan oil and gas exploration, development, and production activities, as well as its interests in the Trans-Alaska oil pipeline.
