HOUSTON -- The general partners of Enterprise Products Partners LP and Duncan Energy Partners LP have made organizational changes to their commercial management teams.
A. J. Teague has been elected as a director to the respective boards of the general partners and as chief commercial officer, responsible for managing all of the commercial businesses of the partnerships. Teague will continue to report to Michael Creel, president and CEO of Enterprise.
Teague joined Enterprise in 1999 as executive VP through the partnership's acquisition of Shell Oil Co.'s midstream energy business in Louisiana and Mississippi. Teague has been responsible for Enterprise's natural gas liquids (NGL) businesses and for developing its natural gas marketing group. Prior to joining Enterprise, Teague was a member of the senior management teams at affiliates of Shell Oil Co., MAPCO Inc. and Dow Chemical Co.
"At this time, we are also making changes to Enterprise's commercial organization," says Creel. "With this realignment, the management of Enterprise's commercial businesses will now be organized into four reporting lines, each of which either form an integrated value chain or have complementary characteristics. The executives managing these businesses will report to Jim Teague."
James H. Lytal, executive VP, will manage Enterprise's regulated and offshore assets. In addition to Lytal's existing responsibility for Enterprise's regulated natural gas pipeline and storage assets, and offshore businesses, he will be responsible for over 10,500 mi (16,898 km) of regulated NGL pipelines.
James M. Collingsworth, senior VP, will continue to be responsible for Enterprise's regulated NGL pipelines and will report to Lytal.
Thomas M. Zulim, senior VP, will manage the partnerships' unregulated NGL businesses. Zulim will lead the partnerships' natural gas gathering and processing business and the NGL fractionation, storage, unregulated NGL pipeline and marketing businesses.
Christopher R. Skoog, senior VP, will manage the unregulated natural gas businesses. He will be responsible for the partnerships' non-regulated and intrastate natural gas pipeline and storage businesses, as well as natural gas marketing.
G.R. Cardillo, VP, continues to manage petrochemical services.
