EXXONMO­BIL’S Meg O’neill will re­place Mike Ut­sler as Wood­side chief op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer in May this year fol­low­ing a brief han­dover pe­riod.

Wood­side stated that Ms O’neill brought a “wealth of op­er­a­tions ex­pe­ri­ence” gained dur­ing a long stint at Exxonmo­bil work­ing in In­done­sia, Nor­way, Canada and the US.

Her most re­cent role was vice pres­i­dent–africa in Exxonmo­bil’s De­vel­op­ment Com­pany.

Meg holds dual Bach­e­lor De­grees in Ocean En­gi­neer­ing and Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing, and a Master’s De­gree in Ocean Sys­tems Man­age­ment from the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy.

Wood­side chief ex­ec­u­tive Peter Cole­man said Mr Ut­sler had been an out­stand­ing mem­ber of Wood­side’s lead­er­ship team since 2013, de­liv­er­ing sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments across op­er­a­tional per­for­mance, HSEQ, and main­te­nance cam­paign de­liv­ery.

“Un­der Mike’s lead­er­ship our op­er­a­tions team has achieved world-lead­ing re­sults. We wish Mike all the best for the fu­ture,” he said.
