BP Names New President for Azerbaijan

Gordon Birrell will succeed Rashid Javanshir as BP's Regional President for Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey (AGT) as of November 15, 2012.

Birrell is currently the Head of Safety and Operational Risk for BP's Production Division, responsible for driving improvements in BP's operating quality across the company's global Production Division.

Javanshir, who has led BP's regional business in Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey since September 2009, will serve as Senior Vice-President, Strategy and Integration in London.

Bob Fryar, BP's Executive Vice President, noted that, "We are bringing Rashid to London to a position which will allow us to utilize his extensive experience beyond the AGT region and in support of the wider BP. We would like to thank Rashid for his leadership and extraordinary commitment to BP's success in Azerbaijan and the region."

"It is our firm's intention to continue our success in the region through even closer cooperation with SOCAR, the government and our partners. To achieve this, we will continue to focus on safety, maximization of production and intensification of performance," Fryar added.

"Gordon, as an experienced leader and someone previously involved in our exploration projects in Azerbaijan, will continue our successful partnership here through joint development and implementation of our long-term business plans, in particular, the plan for long-term stabilization of ACG production which is being developed with partners and the Government of Azerbaijan."

Fryar concluded by wishing both executives good luck in their new roles.
