HOUSTON, June 15 -- St. Mary Land & Exploration Co. has appointed Lehman E. Newton III vice-president, regional manager, of the Permian region.

Newton succeeds Jerry Schuyler, senior vice-president, regional manager, Greater Gulf Coast region, who has resigned. The company has not yet selected a regional manager for the Gulf Coast region.

Newton began his career in 1979 with ARCO and held positions of increasing responsibility in engineering, operations, and business development through 2000. Newton then founded and subsequently sold a private exploration and development company focused on the Permian basin. He has worked for Unocal Corp. subsidiary Pure Resources Inc., as well as its predecessor Chevron Corp. Most recently, he served as general manager of St. Mary's Midland, Tex., office, which he helped open in February.

St. Mary's Permian basin assets will be managed out of the Midland office, which was opened following the acquisition of the Sweetie Peck assets in December 2006. The remaining onshore Texas, Gulf Coast, and Gulf of Mexico assets will be managed by its Houston office.
