Sea-3, Inc. Names Two New Vice Presidents

In its further commitment to handle substantial increases of oceanborne imports of LPG in the near future, Sea-3, Inc., Houston, Texas, a Gazocean Group Company, has appointed two new vice presidents.

Jerome W. Jackson has been named vice president of marketing for the East and West Coasts, with primary emphasis on butane and propane market development to the East Coast suppliers. He will also be concerned with the terminal operations at Newington, N.H., and the further development of two additional import facilities.

Mr. Jackson, who holds a B.S. degree in general engineering from the University of Portland, Ore., recently left Shell Oil Company's head office, where he had been the senior account representative for LPG sales.

W. Roger Roark, as vice president of marketing for the mid-continent, will be responsible for marketing into the Midwest area, principally by exchange. His duties will also include the increasing of Sea-3's trading activities in natural gas liquids and associated petroleum products.

Mr. Roark, a graduate petroleum engineei from the University of Kansas, is a native of Tulsa, Okla., and was most recently the LPG coordinator for Petroleum Trading and Transport Company in that same state.

Sea-3, Inc., a Gazocean Group company, handles the group's U.S. marketing of imported LPG and domestic trading. It first became committed to the importation of LPG when it opened its 400,000-barrel marine terminal at Newington, N.H., in 1975.

Gazocean, a Paris, France-based company, started shipping LPG in 1954, and currently handles over 25 percent of the world's growing LPG ocean transport market through its 30 different shipping, trading, storage, and engineering companies around the world. Its fleet of 60 sophisticated gas-carrying ships, which represents the largest such fleet in the world, is well positioned to deliver the substantial increases of LPG imports projected for the U.S. and other major industrial countries.
