Trinidad’s Atlantic LNG names new CEO

Trinidad and Tobago’s Atlantic LNG, the operator of the Point Fortin export terminal, has appointed Ronald Adams as its new chief executive officer, effective August 1.

Adams will succeed Philip Mshelbila who will return to his parent company and Atantic LNG’s shareholder, Shell, after a 3-year term with the producer.

Over the next two months, Mshelbila will oversee the transition to incoming CEO, Atlantic LNG said in a statement on Tuesday.

Adams is a senior energy sector executive with nearly 30 years of experience across the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of the energy industry, according to the statement.

Moreover, he has held leadership positions in general management, operations, engineering and business development in organizations in Trinidad and North America, Atlantic LNG said.

Adams has been with Shell Trinidad and Tobago Ltd since 2019, where most recently he was the general manager upstream assets.

He has also worked in a variety of roles with petrochemical companies in the Pt. Lisas Industrial Estate including at National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC), another of Atlantic’s shareholder companies.

The Point Fortin facility features four trains with a total capacity of about 15 million tonnes per annum of LNG.

Shell and BP have the biggest stakes in Atlantic LNG trains, followed by NGC and Chinese Investment Corporation (CIC).
