Kea Petroleum PLC, (AIM: KEA), announce the appointment of Richard Anthony Edward Parkes to the Board of Kea Petroleum plc as Managing Director, with immediate effect.

Richard has extensive exploration and operational experience having spent over 25 years in the upstream Petroleum industry. He has held numerous technical and senior management positions in companies such as PetroFrontier, Santos and GeoServices.

Kea Chairman Ian Gowrie-Smith says: "We welcome Richard to the Board and believe his diverse experience in frontier exploration and development of conventional and unconventional resources will be a valuable asset to Kea as we look to develop and commercialise our resources.
