Canadian Natural (TSX:CNQ) doesn’t have a chief executive officer. Its top office is executive chairman, a position held by billionaire financier Murray Edwards.

The Calgary-based company also announced it was creating two new chief operating officer positions to account for growth it made this year through acquisitions and completed oilsands projects.

Darren Fichter will become COO of exploration and production and Scott Stauth will become COO of oilsands.
