April 4 (Bloomberg) — New Zealand Refining Co., operator of the country’s only oil refinery, named Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s Ken Rivers as chief executive officer.

Rivers, who starts the new role on Aug. 16, currently runs Shell’s Stanlow refinery in the U.K., New Zealand Refining said in a statement to the country’s stock exchange today. He replaces Jerome Kerrigan, who was appointed for a one-year term last July pending a global search for permanent replacement.

The refinery at Marsden Point in the north of the country’s North Island is controlled by the local units of Shell, Chevron Corp., Exxon Mobil Corp. and BP Plc.
