Houston Chronicle: Texas City plant to get new leader

BP has named a Shell Oil official to take over as manager of the Texas City refinery beginning next year.

Keith Casey, the current general manager of Shell Oil’s Norco Refinery in Norco, La., will replace Colin Maclean as the Texas City business unit leader and refinery manager early in 2007.

Maclean took over the Texas City plant in May 2005, a couple of months after an explosion at the facility killed 15 and injured scores.

He supervised what the company has called a billion-dollar investment program to enhance safety, renovate the plant infrastructure and change the culture at the facility.

Casey will join BP on Sept. 1 but won’t be on-site at Texas City until January.

Maclean will remain at Texas City through the first quarter of 2007 to ensure a smooth transition, the company said.
