ConocoPhillips Makes Senior Management Changes
ConocoPhillips on Tuesday announced that it is reorganizing its Technology & Major Projects organization into two groups – Technology and Project Development – to further strengthen the focus and accountability of these activities. These changes will be effective February 1.
The Technology group will be responsible for cultivating strategies and business development opportunities that will position ConocoPhillips in technologies that will improve current business performance and provide opportunities for future growth. This group also will provide technical support for the company's global upstream and downstream businesses.
Ryan Lance, currently senior vice president, Technology & Major Projects, will become senior vice president, Technology. Lance will remain in Houston and a member of ConocoPhillips' management committee. Lance joined ARCO in 1984 and held a number of engineering and operations positions in Alaska, California and Texas. After Phillips' acquisition of ARCO Alaska in 2000, he was named vice president of Phillips' and then ConocoPhillips' Lower 48 operations. In 2003, he was named president of the company's Asia Pacific exploration and production operations, then president of strategy, integration and specialty businesses for Refining, Marketing, Supply & Transportation in June 2005, before being named to his current position in early 2006.
The Project Development group will retain oversight of the engineering, construction and procurement activities related to the company's major upstream and downstream global projects.
Luc Messier, currently president and chief executive officer of Technip USA, will join ConocoPhillips as senior vice president, Project Development. Messier will be located in Houston and will become a member of ConocoPhillips' management committee. Messier joined Technip USA in January 2003, and served first as chief operating officer and then as president and chief executive officer of Technip Offshore Inc. before being named to his current position in July 2005. Prior to joining Technip USA, Messier held engineering, project management and managing director roles at Bouygues Construction and Pomerleau.
Lance and Messier will report to Jim Mulva, chairman and chief executive officer.
