HOUSTON, June 4 -- Ian Lundin, president of Swedish oil and gas exploration company Lundin Petroleum AB, also has been named chairman of the company. Lundin succeeds Adolf Lundin, who is relinquishing his top spot after serving in the position for 22 years.
Additionally, Ashley Heppenstall has been appointed as Lundin Petroleum's managing director and CEO.
