Houston-based oil and gas company W&T Offshore has named a new vice president and general manager for the Gulf of Mexico.
W&T Offshore said last week that it promoted William Williford, the general manager of Gulf of Mexico Shelf and Deepwater, to the position of vice president and general manager of Gulf of Mexico.
Williford has been with W&T Offshore since 2006 and served in various positions of increasing responsibility with the company, including reservoir engineer, exploration project manager, general manager of deepwater in the Gulf of Mexico.
He has over 20 years of oil and gas technical experience with large independents in the Gulf of Mexico and Domestic Onshore. Before joining W&T, Williford held positions in reservoir, production, and operations at Kerr McGee and Oryx Energy.
Tracy Krohn, W&T Offshore’s chairman and CEO, said: “William has proven himself to be of great value to W&T and we are looking forward to his continued contributions to our future success.”
