Argentina Names Former Schlumberger Executive As YPF CEO

05/04/2012 | 06:26pm US/Eastern

By Taos Turner


Argentine President Cristina Kirchner named a new chief executive to manage the recently nationalized oil and gas company, YPF SA (YPF, YPFD.BA).

The new CEO, Miguel Galuccio, is a petroleum engineer by training and a former official at the oil services giant Schlumberger Ltd. (SLB), Kirchner said.

"The idea is to have a YPF that's absolutely competitive and professional but with political direction," Kirchner said in a nationally televised speech.

Moments before her speech, Kirchner signed a bill to expropriate 51% of YPF's stock from its majority shareholder, Spain's Repsol YPF SA (REPYY, REP.MC).
