Nigerian Segun Kuteyi appointed CEO of Chevron’s China Business Unit

A Nigerian engineer, Segun Kuteyi, has been appointed Managing Director China Business Unit of American oil giant, Chevron.

Kuteyi is going to China from Houston, Texas, where he was part of the Chevron Pipeline and Power team.

In his new post, Kuteyi will lead Chevron China Energy Company (CCEC) Pte. Ltd. and Unocal East China Sea Ltd (UECSL) partnerships with all stakeholders in the south east Asian country.

UECSL has a contract with China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) for natural gas development and production in Chuandongbei Block in the Sichuan Basin in southwestern China. CCEC works with partners to develop offshore energy resources in the South China Sea and in Bohai Bay.

“Operating under Chevron (China) Investment Co., Ltd and Chevron Hong Kong Limited, Chevron® and Caltex® brands have become an established marketer of lubricants and fuels products in China”, the company says on its website. Kuteyi will have oversight of these portfolios.

A 1993 graduate of Chemical Engineering from the Obafemi Awolowo University in Nigeria’s south west, Kuteyi has had executive education at Rice University, Harvard Law School and SMU Cox School of Business.

He joined Chevron as a process engineer on the Escravos Gas Plant (EGP) in 1996. He has moved up the rungs in roles with increasing responsibility across the value chain, including stints in Facilities/Project engineering, Terminal engineering, Asset Management, Strategy & Business Planning, Downstream Gas Operations and Pipeline & Power.

Kuteyi’s career breakthrough came in 2011, with the promotion to Project Manager for EGP3B, a crucial position that superintends Chevron Nigeria’s 600Million standard cubic feet per day capacity plant, in which a significant fraction of gas delivered in Nigeria’s domestic market is processed.
