Board of Directors

Our Board’s composition is carefully considered by the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee to ensure diversity in the broadest sense – of culture, background, outlook, experience, and tenure to bring together multiple, complementary perspectives. Our Directors bring a powerful range of skills and experience in relevant areas, including finance, exploration and production, environment, public policy, international business and leadership, as well as oilfield services.

This unique and highly impactful cross-section of capabilities enables our Board to help guide the Company’s strategic objectives and leading corporate governance practices. Further, while each member of our Board has held significant leadership positions in their respective professional fields, of equal importance is each Director’s personal ethics and integrity. Each of our Directors embodies the highest degree of personal and professional standards arming them with the qualified insights to deliver sustainable shareholder value.
