JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A vice president for BP Alaska has been promoted to president.

The company announced Tuesday that Janet Weiss (WEESS) will succeed John Minge, who was appointed chairman and president of BP America Inc.

Weiss' appointment will take effect Feb. 15.

Weiss currently serves as vice president of resources for BP Alaska. In her new role, the company says she will be responsible for BP's oil and gas exploration, development and production activities in Alaska, plus BP's interests in the trans-Alaska oil pipeline.

BP is one of the North Slope's major players, and it's among the companies that have been pushing for changes in Alaska's oil tax system. Oil taxes are expected to be a major issue during the current legislative session.
