BP Appoints New Head of Exploration

BP announced Friday that it has appointed a former senior executive in its TNK-BP operation in Russia as its new head of exploration. Richard Herbert succeeds Mike Daly, who has chosen to retire from BP at the end of this year after 28 years with the company.

Hebert rejoins BP from Talisman Energy, where he held the position of executive vice president for exploration from 2009. Before joining Talisman Herbert spent six years at TNK-BP in Russia, where he served first as vice president of exploration and the executive vice president for technology.

BP Group Chief Executive Bob Dudley commented in a company statement:

"I am pleased to welcome Richard back to BP. He brings a wealth of exploration and leadership experience and expertise, gained across the world, which is aligned well with BP's upstream and exploration strategy."
