Cheniere promotes Corey Grindal to COO

US LNG exporting giant Cheniere has promoted Corey Grindal to the newly created position of chief operating officer.

As executive vice president and COO, Grindal would lead the operations, engineering and construction, shared services, and worldwide trading organizations within Cheniere, the firm said in a statement.

In his new role, which will start on January 2, 2023, he will continue to report to Cheniere’s CEO Jack Fusco.

In addition, Grindal will also serve as executive VP and COO at Cheniere Partners.

He will relocate back to Houston from London, where he has served as executive VP, worldwide trading since 2020.

Grindal joined Cheniere in 2013 and led the company’s gas supply organization, which today is one of the largest holders of pipeline capacity and purchasers of natural gas in the US, according to Cheniere.

“Establishing a chief operating officer is another important milestone as we continually enhance our operations through improved coordination, communication, and alignment,” Fusco said in the statement.

“Corey’s contributions have played a significant part in Cheniere’s success, most recently as EVP of worldwide trading, and previously SVP of gas supply,” he said.

The operator of the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi terminals recently revealed plans to increase the company’s liquefaction capacity to about 90 mtpa as part of its “20/20 Vision” long-term capital allocation plan.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant in Louisiana has six operational trains with a capacity of about 30 mtpa, while the firm took a final investment decision on Stage 3 expansion at its Corpus Christi LNG export plant in Texas.

The expansion will add about 10 mtpa to the three-train 15 mtpa Corpus Christi plant.
