CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - After the death of its executive director, West Virginia’s top oil and natural gas lobby group is tapping an interim replacement.

The West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association announced Friday that Stephen G. Perdue will serve as the group’s interim director. Perdue replaces Corky DeMarco, who died of an apparent heart attack at 68 years old last month.

Perdue serves on the government affairs team for the law firm Steptoe & Johnson. He previously worked with EQT Corporation as a government relations manager and regional land director.

Perdue has held other jobs in land management with various energy companies across the region.
