Cameron LNG says CEO to retire

Cameron LNG, the operator of the 12 mtpa liquefaction and export facility in Louisiana, said that its chief executive Farhad Ahrabi would retire at the end of January 2022, after seven years of service with the company.

The LNG terminal operator controlled by US firm Sempra said in a statement its board of directors has engaged a search firm to evaluate internal but also external candidates to serve as the next leader of Cameron LNG.

Farhad orchestrated the creation of the first phase of the Cameron LNG export facility in Louisiana from the construction process to full commercial operations, the firm said.

“The board of directors sincerely thank Farhad for architecting the organization, processes and systems to construct and operate the liquefaction facility that makes Cameron LNG a success story,” said Lisa Glatch, chair of the board for Cameron LNG.

To remind, Cameron LNG reached full commercial operations of the first phase with three trains in August 2020.

Sempra and partners are also working on expanding the facility with the fourth train.

To date, the facility has exported more than 240 cargoes of US LNG to 28 countries worldwide, according to Cameron LNG.

Sempra indirectly holds 50.2 percent in Cameron LNG while other project participants include affiliates of TotalEnergies, Mitsui & Co, and Japan LNG Investment, a company held by Mitsubishi Corp and NYK.
