Chevron Appoints Nigerian Engineer as CEO of its China Business Unit

American oil major Chevron Corp. has appointed Segun Kuteyi as Managing Director at Chevron China Business Unit.

He will lead Chevron’s value-chain business strategies in the world’s second largest economy.

As the President of Chevron China Energy Company (CCEC) Pte. Ltd. and Unocal East China Sea Ltd (UECSL), Kuteyi will navigate the company’s 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. Kuteyi is going to China from Houston, Texas, where he was part of the Chevron Pipeline & Power team.

      Segun Kuteyi was my Project Manager in the Chevron EGP3B Project from 2011 to 2014 under the Gas Projects/Major Capital Projects. He demonstrated indepth technical and leadership capabilities throughout his stay on the project. He is always very calm in the face of ruffling challenges. His appointment is a demonstration of the abundance of highly skilled human resources in Nigeria.

    This is the type of news that is soothing music to the ears of well-meaning Nigerians. And so oddly they come from our sterling performances outside not the shambolic outputs of mediocre players who occupy high positions on account of ethno- religious considerations.
