Sky News has learnt that the former head of BG Group, Chris Finlayson, is being lined up to take over from Tony Hayward as Chairman of Genel Energy.
An appointment is unlikely to be finalised until sometime in the new year, and Genel is also considering other candidates for the role, according to people close to the situation.
Mr Finlayson, who was also a senior executive at Shell, left BG in 2014; he has since held a string of boardroom posts, including chairmanships at Siccar Point Energy and InterOil.
