Chevron Corp. has released a statement announcing that Steven W. Green has been appointed President of Chevron North America Exploration and Production, effective 1 March 2019.

Green will succeed Jeff Shellebarger, who will be leaving the company after 38 years of service. Green is currently president of Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production, and, in his new role, will oversee Chevron’s exploration and production activities throughout North America, including the company’s significant portfolio assets in Canada, California, the Gulf of Mexico, Pennsylvania and the mid-continent region of the US. He will report to Jay Johnson, Chevron’s executive vice president, upstream.

Michael K. Wirth, Chevron’s chairman and chief executive officer, said: “Steve brings deep and proven operating experience to this role overseeing our North American upstream assets.

“He has shown exceptional leadership as he guided our Upstream operations across the Asia Pacific region over the last several years.”

In the statement, Chevron claims that Nigel Hearne will succeed Green as president of Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production, effective 1 March next year. Hearne currently serves as managing director of Chevron Australia and head of the Australasia Business Unit, where he is responsible for the company’s upstream interests and activities in Australia and New Zealand. In his new role, Hearne will oversee nine countries across the Asia Pacific region. He will also report to Johnson in his new role.

Wirth said: “Nigel brings extensive international upstream and downstream operating experience to his expanded role.

“His recent experience commencing operations at our two flagship natural gas projects in Western Australia makes him exceptionally qualified to assume this key leadership position.”

On Shellebarger’s retirement, Wirth said: “Jeff has been an outstanding leader for Chevron for nearly four decades. Most recently he’s played a central role in advancing our significant onshore and offshore operations across North America, including firmly establishing our leadership position in the Permian Basin. Beyond his leadership inside Chevron, Jeff has distinguished himself as a sought-out leader across the greater Houston community.”
