The head of Chevron Corp’s Brazilian unit, George Buck, can leave the country when his job ends later this month as long as he pays a 500,000 real ($245,000) bond to assure his participation in court cases related to a November oil spill, a Brazilian court ruled.
Buck will be replaced by Kelly Hartshorn, head of Chevron’s deepwater operations in Angola, a person with knowledge of the appointment said. The source declined to be named because he has not been authorized to speak about personnel matters.
According to Rio de Janeiro federal court documents, Buck will take up a job in Houston in Chevron’s drilling and completions department.
