Morocco focused Longreach Oil & Gas (CVE:LOI) has appointed Ronald Lansdell as vice president exploration and as a board director with immediate effect.

Lansdell joins the company having held a number of senior technical and commercial roles during a 15 year career at Eni/Agip. These roles included being posted to Nigeria, Kazakhstan and the UK.Prior to his roles at Eni/Agip, his career included exploration coordinator Western Australia for BHP Petroleum and also nine years spent with Elf, in Norway, France and Syria.Longreach also announced the appointment of Dr Mehdi Ali as an advisor to the board. Dr Ali has extensive experience in the Middle East region, having been a senior advisor to the governments of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on investment and energy. During his career Dr Ali was a senior economist at the World Bank, regional representative for the UN for North Africa and the Middle East and was a director at the OPEC Fund. Chairman and chief executive Bryan Benitz said: “Operationally, it will become an increasingly busy time for Longreach over the next two years and so the appointment of a senior exploration specialist to the board is a natural progression. “This follows completion of the Sidi Moktar farm-in last year, under which Longreach is required to carry new seismic acquisition and the drilling of two exploration wells; in addition to extensive work programmes planned for other licences. Having such an experienced and well respected person, such as Ron, joining our board will only serve to help move the assets forward and the company towards first production”. “I am also delighted that Mehdi has agreed to come on board as an advisor. He is a highly respected person in the region and I am sure his extensive experience will prove invaluable to the development of the company,” Benitz added.
