Apache has announced the appointment of oil and gas veteran Lamar McKay to its board of directors.
The 62-year-old, who began his career with Amoco in 1980, previously served as BP’s chief transition officer from October 2019 until his retirement in December 2020.

During his time at BP he was also chief executive of the firm’s worldwide upstream business, chairman and president of BP America and executive vice president of BP.
John Lowe, Apache’s non-executive board chairman, said: “We are delighted to welcome Lamar to the Apache board. A respected leader in the industry, he brings with him 40 years of international natural gas and oil experience.
“Lamar will be a tremendous asset, and we look forward to his expertise as Apache continues to responsibly help meet the world’s energy needs.”
