New FO head

March 4, 1999, 08:00 CET

Grethe K Moen (38) has been appointed senior vice president for Statoil's Industry & Trading business area (FO).

She replaces Leidulf Ramstad (52), who has decided for personal reasons not to accept the offer of this post. He will remain in his former position as head of Statoil's refinery operations.

A graduate engineer, Ms Moen joined Statoil in 1982 and has worked as a process engineer, as a market analyst and sales negotiator in the gas area, and as a licence manager.

She was appointed operations vice president for Veslefrikk in the North Sea in 1994, and moved to the corresponding post for the Sleipner fields in the following year.
