Marathon Oil appoints vice-president of operations services

Marathon Oil Corp. appointed Michael J. Stover to the newly established position of vice-president, operations services, effective Feb. 1. Stover currently serves as manager of the company's Midcontinent production operations.

Stover will oversee Marathon’s upstream development, technology, technical excellence, global procurement, land and commercial services, and drilling and completions activities.

He joined Marathon in 1986 initially as a roustabout, followed by operations and reservoir engineering assignments for Yates field in West Texas. In 1991 he transferred to the company's international group in Houston and was responsible for reservoir and economic studies for fields in Ireland, Tunisia, and Norway.

During 1995-2000, Stover relocated to Alaska where he worked both development and exploration projects associated with operations on the Kenai Peninsula.

In 2000, he joined Marathon’s corporate strategic planning group in Houston. In this assignment, his responsibilities included business planning and corporate portfolio modeling to support the reorganization of USX Corp. that lead to the establishment of Marathon as a standalone company.

Following that assignment Stover relocated to Aberdeen, Scotland, where he held the position of European business unit subsurface and business planning manager. In 2005, he relocated to Houston where he assumed the role of East Texas/North Louisiana asset manager. In 2006, his area of responsibility was expanded to include Oklahoma oil and gas properties.

In 2009, he assumed the position of director of central evaluation and financial planning. In this role, Stover was responsible for providing financial and portfolio analysis across the business enterprise. In late 2011, he assumed his current role of Midcontinent asset manager.
