Energy Transfer LP has expanded its alternative energy group with the hiring of energy industry veteran Dilanka Seimon, who most recently led BHP’s global energy sales and procurement team.
“Adding Dilanka’s significant experience in the energy industry and his insights into renewable energy opportunities will help us continue to develop our alternative energy and ESG platforms,” Tom Mason, head of the pipeline operator’s alternative energy group, commented in a company release on Jan. 20.
Based in Dallas, Energy Transfer owns and operates one of the largest and most diversified portfolios of energy assets in North America, with a strategic footprint in all of the major U.S. production basins. In early 2021, the company created its alternative energy group as a new platform to further its focus on renewable energy projects.
“We are very pleased to add Dilanka to our team,” Mason added.
Seimon joined Energy Transfer earlier this month as vice president of alternative energy. In the role, he will be responsible for developing alternative energy and carbon capture projects for Energy Transfer along with various ESG initiatives including the development of carbon offset programs that are accretive to the company’s operations, according to the company release said.
Prior to joining Energy Transfer, Seimon spent eight years with BHP most recently as vice president of global sales and marketing, oil, gas, power and carbon. He previously held positions with Southwest Energy, Wells Fargo Commodities and Sequent Energy Management.
