EL DORADO, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE: MUR) announced today that Eugene T. (Gene)
Coleman, Executive Vice President, Exploration & Business Development,
has elected to retire effective February 28, 2019, after 17 years of

for the company, and his contributions will be greatly missed. Both Mike
and David are key members of the leadership team and are poised for
continued success with their respective new responsibilities,” stated
