EOG Resources has promoted Jeffrey R. Leitzell to executive vice-president of exploration and production, joining the headquarters executive management team effective immediately.

Leitzell has been vice-president and general manager of EOG’s Midland, Texas office since December 2017, responsible for operations in the Delaware Basin located in west Texas and southeast New Mexico. In his new role, he will be responsible for EOG’s Midland, Denver and Artesia operating areas.

“Jeff has done an exceptional job leading the continued development of EOG’s Delaware Basin assets,” said William R. Thomas, chairman and CEO. “Under his leadership, EOG significantly increased activity in the Delaware Basin adding more than three times the inventory than has been drilled, while also demonstrating industry leadership in water re-use, flaring reduction and methane emissions reduction technology to minimize EOG’s environmental footprint.”

EOG Resources has proven reserves in the United States, Trinidad and China.
