HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / July 5, 2022 / Evolution Petroleum (NYSE American:EPM) ("Evolution" or the "Company") announced today that its President and Chief Executive Officer, Jason Brown, is departing the Company in order to pursue other opportunities. The Board of Directors has elected Kelly Loyd, a current member of the Board of Directors, as interim Chief Executive Officer and will immediately initiate a search effort.
Robert Herlin, Chairman of the Board of Directors, commented "Jason was brought on board three years ago to substantially increase the Company's scale and asset diversity. To that end, he has been very successful with the completion of four significant acquisitions completed prior to the substantial run-up in commodity prices over the last nine months: two natural gas and gas liquids-focused acquisitions in the Barnett and Jonah Fields and two oil-focused acquisitions in the Williston Basin and Hamilton Dome. In addition to low-decline producing reserves, the acquisitions brought an inventory of accretive development drilling locations that should have a positive impact on Evolution for years to come. We are appreciative of his contributions to the Company, particularly through the pandemic, and wish him well in his new endeavor."
Mr. Loyd has been a director of the Company since 2008 and currently chairs the Investment Committee of the Board of Directors. Since 2004, Mr. Loyd has been associated with Petralis Energy Partners, LLC and JVL Advisors, LLC, both being private energy investment vehicles.
