The American Petroleum Institute (API) recently announced that Phillips 66 Chairman and CEO Greg Garland will serve as chairman of API’s Board of Directors for a two-year term.
Garland recently served the board as chair of the Finance Committee, and succeeds Chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil Darren Woods, who will remain a member of API’s Executive Committee.
Garland said: “The natural gas and oil industry finds itself in a transformative era […] The challenges and opportunities facing the industry have never been greater, and technological innovation is driving unprecedented change for the better.”
API President and CEO Mike Sommers said: “Greg’s dynamic leadership and vision for the nation’s energy future will be invaluable assets to API during a critical time in the industry’s history […] API is extremely fortunate to have Greg’s expertise as the natural gas and oil industry continues to address the challenge of meeting growing energy demand while driving environmental progress.
