WHL Energy: New director brings in 25 years of upstream experience

Australian energy company WHL Energy Limited has named a senior oil and gas executive Jeffrey Schrull as a Non-Executive Director to the WHL Board.

Schrull has over 25 years of senior experience in the upstream E&P business, with a particularly strong and successful working history in Africa. He began his career with Chevron where he worked for 19 years, initially on development and exploration projects in the US, followed by international projects in the UK, Australia (Gorgon Project), Norway, Brazil and Africa.

His final three years at Chevron were as an Exploration and New Ventures Manager for West Africa where his responsibilities included acreage acquisition, contract negotiation and the establishment of project teams.

Following his career at Chevron, he held the role of General Manager of Exploration for Addax Petroleum from July 2006 to February 2010. At Addax he was responsible for the creation of the Exploration Business Unit and managing an annual budget of up to US$500 million. Addax was acquired by Chinese giant Sinopec for US$9.2 billion in August 2009, with the exploration portfolio being cited as a key driver for the deal.

Most recently Schrull was Managing Director of West African focused Australian junior Rialto Energy (now Azonto Petroleum Limited) from July 2010 to November 2012.

WHL Energy Managing Director, David Rowbottam, said: “We are delighted to have an oil and gas professional of Jeff’s vast experience join the WHL Energy Board at such an important time in the Company’s history. Jeff’s background of success and his experience in Africa in particular, will be invaluable as we move forward with our Seychelles project and look to add new projects to our portfolio.

“He is highly regarded for his technical knowledge, which will make him a great fit with the WHL Energy Board and our exploration team.”
