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.”
