Dev Sanyal, executive vice president, gas & low carbon energy, has elected to leave bp at the end of this year to take a new role elsewhere.

LONDON, UK: Dev Sanyal, executive vice president, gas & low carbon energy, has elected to leave bp at the end of this year to take a new role elsewhere.

Sanyal has been a member of bp’s executive leadership team for over a decade. He has led bp’s gas & low carbon energy business, having previously been chief executive of bp Alternative

Energy, as well as executive vice president, Asia and Europe, from 2016. He will hand over his executive responsibilities during the fourth quarter.

Sanyal joined bp in 1989 and has held a wide range of senior financial, operational, trading and executive positions in bp over 30 years. He is also a non-executive director of Man Group plc, a member of the board of overseers of The Fletcher School at Tufts University and of the energy advisory board of the Government of India.

In his time leading these businesses, bp entered the solar industry in 2017 through the formation of the fast-growing Lightsource bp partnership, expanded its biofuels business in 2019 through the formation of the Brazilian joint venture bp Bunge Bioenergia and, most recently, entered offshore wind in both the US and the UK. In addition, in a short space of time he has built growth businesses in hydrogen and gas and power in Brazil, UK, Europe and Asia.

“I have worked with Dev for decades and have seen first-hand the incredible contributions he has made to bp, most recently creating our gas & low carbon energy business and building first-class positions in solar, biofuels and offshore wind,” said Bernard Looney, bp chief executive.

”It has been the honour and privilege of a lifetime to work for bp over three decades. This is a truly great company making a difference to the world. I take pride of having been part of an extraordinary team leaning forward in the energy transition and building the foundations of bp’s next chapter,” said Sanyal.
