Integrated energy company ConocoPhillips has announced that Randy Limbacher, president of exploration and production Americas, has elected to leave the company to pursue other opportunities, effective October 31, 2007.

The position held by Mr Limbacher will not be replaced. The organization currently under this position will be moved directly under John Lowe, executive vice president of exploration & production.

Jim Mulva, chairman and chief executive officer, said: Randy has made significant contributions to this industry for more than 20 years. His leadership at Burlington Resources was instrumental in that company’s success and growth, and also provided for a smooth transition and value capture at the time of ConocoPhillips’s acquisition of Burlington. We wish Randy the very best.
