John Mingé, Regional President BP Alaska, appointed Chairman/President of BP Americas Inc., succeeded by Janet Weiss.

John Mingé, has served as head of BP’s Alaska business since January 1, 2009. He will be based in Houston, where he will serve as BP’s lead representative in the US.

“BP’s history in Alaska stretches back more than five decades and it is one of the largest and most important businesses in BP’s global portfolio,” Mr. Mingé said. “Having spent 18 of her 27 years in the industry in Alaska, I am confident that Janet Weiss’ background and experience are what BP Alaska needs to continue thriving as a major global energy producer.”

Beginning her career in Alaska in 1986, she has worked there as a process engineer, reservoir engineer, petroleum engineer, and reservoir engineering advisor. Her executive appointments include VP of Special Projects for BP Exploration & Production and VP for Unconventional Gas Technology. She has also led BP’s Western Wyoming businesses and Base Operations for the Gulf of Mexico Shelf.
