Former BP CFO joins InterOil
InterOil said it has appointed Ellis Armstrong, former Chief Financial Officer of BP Group’s global exploration and production business, as a non-executive director.
Armstrong is also a non-executive director of Lamprell and Lloyds Register.
InterOil Chairman Chris Finlayson said, “Armstrong, who would join the board from January 1, 2015, had more than 30 years of international oil and gas experience covering strategy and operations, major integrations, acquisitions and disposals and government relations.”
In a long career with BP, Armstrong ran the company’s technology group, was the group’s Commercial Director and had senior operational roles in the Caribbean and Latin America, Venezuela, Alaska and the North Sea.
He was BP’s representative on advisory boards to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Institute of Americas, and was executive sponsor of BP’s relationship with Imperial College, London.
Finlayson added that Armstrong’s skills and experience will be invaluable as InterOil continues the development of the Elk-Antelope LNG project in Papua New Guinea.
