OIL and gas producer Chevron has announced that the managing director of its Australasia business unit, Jay Johnson, will be transferring to a new role in January, to be replaced by Roy Krzywosinski. Mr Johnson is taking up a new appointment as managing director of Chevron’s Eurasia business unit, based in Kazakhstan. Mr Krzywosinski is currently the president and general manager of Chevron’s project resources company. During Mr Johnson’s four-year stint in Perth, Chevron’s main focus was progressing the planning and approvals process for the Gorgon liquefied natural gas (LNG) project on Barrow Island. The project has faced delays and been affected by substantial cost increases but is likely to proceed, helped by the strong rise in LNG sale prices. The group has continued as a participant in the North West Shelf venture, which has expanded its operations, and operates oil fields on Barrow Island. It is also continuing to evaluate development of the Wheatstone gas field off the Pilbara coast, including a feasibility study on a gas-to-liquids project. Chevron’s Australasia business unit has grown to have about 950 staff.
