10:19 EDTBPBP appoints Lamar McKay to deputy group chief executive
BP announced the appointment of Lamar McKay to the new position of Deputy Group Chief Executive. McKay, currently chief executive of BP's Upstream segment and a 35-year veteran of BP, will be based in London and take up the role following a suitable handover period. McKay will be succeeded as Upstream chief executive by Bernard Looney, currently chief operating officer, production, in the Upstream segment. In addition to assuming some duties currently borne by BP's Group Chief Executive, McKay's responsibilities will include strategy and long-term planning, safety and operational risk, technology, and corporate governance - including ethics and compliance. BP America will continue to report to him. These appointments headline a reorganisation of BP's executive team that includes other adjustments which will follow the retirement of Katrina Landis, executive vice president of corporate business activities, who leaves the company on May 1 following a career of 24 years with BP. Landis will not be replaced on the executive team and her current role's responsibilities will be assigned to other members of the team. Reference Link

07:36 EDTBPAnalysts still predicting mergers as oil slump drags on, WSJ reports
Bankers and analysts have been predicting a wave of merger activity will come almost since crude prices began to fall from over $100 a barrel, but the only big acquisition by an oil major so far has been Shell's (RDS.A) purchase of BG Group (BRGYY), said The Wall Street Journal, which added that analysts still believe deal-making is likely to return this year if prices continue to languish. With Chevron (CVX) set to report today and its big peers soon to follow, analysts are expecting the four biggest publicly traded Western oil companies to have their weakest combined profits since 1998, the Journal noted. The report noted that U.S. shale oil producers, such as Apache (APA) and Whiting Petroleum (WLL), were previously targeted though potential sellers were reluctant to accept offers as they hoped for a rebound in oil prices and potential buyers wondered if any deal struck would look expensive if crude prices fell further, but "both impediments are gone now," the Journal contends.
