Empire’s President picks up more job responsibilities



The President and CEO at Empire Petroleum Corporation took on added duties as the result of a recent move by the firm’s board of directors.

Michael Morrisett, President and CEO was appointed to also temporarily serve as the Tulsa company’s principal financial officer. The appointment came after the March resignation by Stephen L. Faulkner, Jr. as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Accounting Officer at the company.

Morrissett will perform the temporary duties until the company hires a replacement principal financial officer. The board took the action on May 10, according to a company filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
