ExxonMobil’s LNG unit gets new global marketing head

ExxonMobil’s liquefied natural gas unit has welcomed a new vice president for global LNG marketing in the latest management reshuffle at the US energy giant.

Andrew Barry, the former managing director of ExxonMobil Papua New Guinea will take over from Alex Volkov who will remain at ExxonMobil and will join the company’s upstream integrated solutions group as commercial vice president.

Reflecting on his work in the LNG business, Volkov said it had been a “challenging and exciting period for the industry and ExxonMobil’s growing LNG portfolio.”

“As I move to the upstream commercial group, I will use my experiences in LNG to build on ways to increase our competitiveness and develop new ways to serve the needs of our customers,” he said.

Andrew headed ExxonMobil PNG for six years. During his tenure, he helped transition the $19 billion PNG LNG project from development to production.

“I am excited to take over the reins from Alex in this international business. Alex has done a great job in particular navigating the challenges we all faced during 2020,” Andrew said.

“The business environment remains challenging but the LNG portfolio is well positioned to support the dual energy challenge of delivering energy whilst reducing environmental impact,” he said.

In addition, Peter Larden from ExxonMobil Canada will replace Andrew Barry in PNG’s Port Moresby.

Larden joined ExxonMobil in Melbourne, Australia, in 2005 and has held progressively senior technical, supervisory and planning roles in Australia, the US the UK and Africa.
