DUBAI, United Arab Emirates —

The oil-rich United Arab Emirates has named a new energy minister as part of a limited Cabinet reshuffle that is not expected to bring major policy shifts in the Gulf nation.

The most significant change brings in Suhail Bin Mohammed al-Mazroui, an executive from at a state-linked oil company, to oversee the nation's energy resources. His predecessor had served in the post for more than eight years.

The official WAM news agency said Tuesday's changes also brought new leaders for three other ministries, including public works and two ministers of state positions.

The change in the energy ministry is not expected to alter energy policies in the OPEC nation.

Mazrouri has served as deputy CEO and senior vice president for new business development at Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Oil & Gas.
