OGP elects Birrell as chairman

The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (OGP) has elected Gordon Birrell to serve as chair of its management committee. He was elected at the OGP’s recent annual general meeting in Brisbane.

Birrell, who has represented BP PLC on OGP’s management committee for 4 years, became BP’s regional president for Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey in 2012. Previously, during the course of a 25-year career in the upstream oil and gas industry, Birrell held a variety of senior roles with special focus on the management of safety, operational risk, and production.

The management committee’s newly elected vice-chairs include Ian MacDonald of Chevron Corp. and Michel Contie of Total SA.

OGP’s members include most of the world’s leading publicly traded, private, and state-owned oil and gas companies, associations, and major upstream service companies. OGP members produce more than half the world’s oil and about a third of its gas.
