Luquette to retire after 35-year career at Chevron

Chevron Corp.

Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) announced that Jeff Shellebarger has been named president of Chevron North America Exploration and Production Company, effective August 1, 2013. Shellebarger succeeds Gary Luquette, who will retire from Chevron after 35 years of distinguished service.

Shellebarger is currently managing director of Chevron's IndoAsia Business Unit. Since joining Chevron in 1980, Shellebarger has held a variety of upstream positions in the US, Angola and Indonesia. In his new capacity, he will be responsible for overseeing Chevron's exploration and production activities throughout North America, including the company's significant portfolio of assets in California, the Gulf of Mexico, Pennsylvania, the Mid-Continent region of the US and Canada. Shellebarger will report to George Kirkland, Chevron's vice chairman and executive vice president of Upstream.

Luquette has led Chevron's North America Upstream business since 2006. He previously held key exploration and production positions in Louisiana, California, United Kingdom and Indonesia. As the head of the company's North America upstream business, Luquette opened new frontiers by advancing Chevron's presence in the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico and acquiring significant shale gas positions in Pennsylvania and Canada. In addition to these contributions, Luquette played an instrumental role in helping the industry improve its oil spill prevention and response capabilities, and enabling the company's restart in the Gulf through diligent work with government officials and regulators following the Deepwater Horizon incident. Luquette, 57, will stay with the company until September 1, 2013 to transition his responsibilities.
