Tellurian adds new board member

US LNG firm Tellurian said it has named energy and financial industry veteran James Bennett as a new independent board member.

Bennett is the former president and CEO of SandRidge Energy and previously served as a managing director first at GSO Capital Partners and then at White Deer Energy, according to a Tellurian statement.

He is also a current board member and executive chairman of Tapstone Energy, the statement said.

“Tellurian adds both upstream and investment bench strength to our already robust board with the addition of James,” Tellurian’s co-founder and executive chairman Charif Souki, said.

“He brings over 30 years of experience which will be invaluable as we focus on enhancing our Haynesville upstream position,” Souki said.

Tellurian is developing the 27.6 mtpa Driftwood LNG export project in Louisiana.

The Houston-based firm has this year signed three 10-year LNG supply deals for the project for a total of 9 mtpa. These include contracts with Gunvor, Vitol, and with Shell.
