Woodside Petroleum will consider both internal and external candidates to succeed CEO Peter Coleman, who has advised that he will step down in the second half of 2021. Potential external candidates are said to include Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher and ex-Shell Australia chair Zoe Yujnovich, while Meg O’Neill is widely regarded as the leading internal contender. Some observers have raised concern that Woodside is slated to make a final investment decision on its Scarborough LNG project at around the same time that Coleman will leave the oil and gas group.
