Ithaca names COO

Ithaca Energy Inc. has named Roy Buchan as Chief Operations Officer, starting 5 January 2015.

Buchan has over 30 years of operational experience in the oil and gas industry. He has held various technical and senior management positions in the North Sea and internationally for Royal Dutch Shell plc and was previously Group Head of Operations for BG Group plc and, most recently, Technical & Production Director of Talisman Sinopec Energy UK Limited.

In accordance with the Company’s Stock Option Plan, the Board of Directors has granted 750,000 share options to Buchan at a price of C$1.06, which was the closing price on the Toronto Stock Exchange on 5 December 2014.

The options may be exercised for a period of four years from 8 December 2014. One third of the options will vest at the end of each of the first, second and third years from the Effective Date. This share option grant does not increase the total number of shares under option, as updated on 8 December 2014.

The Company has also confirmed that John Woods, currently Chief Development Officer, will be leaving the Company on 31 January 2015.

Les Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of Ithaca, said: “We are delighted to welcome Roy to head up the Company’s operations organisation. He brings a wealth of industry experience and a deep understanding of North Sea operations that will be invaluable as the Company prepares for the commencement of production from the Stella development. We would also like to sincerely thank John for his contribution to the company over the years and wish him well in the future.”
