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.

Under his leadership, BP Alaska successfully tested innovative enhanced oil recovery technologies, such as Bright Water and LoSal, which are now used by BP around the globe.

During his nearly 30-year career with BP, Minge has held a variety of executive and engineering posts worldwide. These include assignments as president of BP Indonesia, head of BP’s Asia Pacific unit, and president of exploration and production for Vietnam and China.
