Tullow Oil plc (Tullow) is pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Wiles as an independent non-executive Director of Tullow with effect from 28 June 2023.
Rebecca brings deep technical subsurface and geoscience expertise to the Tullow Board, following a 33-year career at BP plc (BP). Pertinent to Tullow, Rebecca also brings emerging markets experience through her role as Vice President of Exploration and Appraisal at BP Angola, as well as commercial and operational experience from her position as Managing Director of BP’s Norway business.
During her career, Rebecca was also an integral member of many of BP’s functional leadership teams, which focused on optimising performance and rigorously verifying subsurface data. Following the departure of Dr Mike Daly at the end of the 2023 Annual General Meeting, Rebecca replaces this critical skill set on the Board.
Rebecca is a Fellow of the British Geological Society and holds a B.Sc. (Hons) in Geochemistry and is also a non-executive director for SES Water.
Phuthuma Nhleko, Chairman of Tullow Oil plc, commented:
“Tullow has a world class resource base and we are focussed on maximising recovery from this. With Mike Daly retiring, I believe it's imperative our Board has a member whose skills are dedicated to our subsurface work, which is at the core of our business model and strategy, and a key driver of value. I would like to warmly welcome Rebecca to the Board. She joins Tullow at a pivotal time ahead of bringing the Jubilee South-East field in Ghana on-stream, that will make a significant step change in our production and free cash flow generation.”
