W&T Offshore Inc.’s vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, Shahid A. Ghauri, is leaving the Houston-based company to pursue “other personal interests,” a company release on April 11 said.

Tracy W. Krohn, chairman and CEO, commented, “We appreciate Shahid’s dedicated efforts during his five years with the company.”

Ghauri joined W&T Offshore in March 2017 and effective April 7, 2017 became vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. He had previously served as a partner with Jones Walker, where he focused primarily on business and commercial transactions in the oil and gas sector, and before that was the assistant general counsel of BHP Billiton Petroleum, where he managed the legal team responsible for unconventional resource plays.
