The head of Devon Energy Corp.’s Canadian division is stepping down as the operation heads into its next phase following the sale of its conventional oil and gas assets in February, the Toronto Globe and Mail reports. Chris Seasons, who has been president of Devon Canada for the past decade, said he will leave the Oklahoma City-based company at the end of June. He will be replaced by Rob Dutton, who is now vice-president of capital projects.
An explosion on Wednesday shut a natural gas-processing plant in Wyoming that can churn out about 2 percent of the daily U.S. gas supply, and a nearby town was evacuated though no injuries were reported, according to Reuters. The blast at the Williams Companies Inc plant in Opal, Wyoming, touched off a fire that was still burning several hours later, company spokeswoman Michele Swaner said.
