Tellurian Inc. named Octávio Simões as president and CEO on Nov. 30, replacing Meg Gentle who is departing Tellurian after four years at the helm of the U.S. LNG company.

Previously, Simões was president and CEO of Sempra LNG & Midstream where he was responsible for all LNG and natural gas midstream activities, including Cameron LNG, a 12 million tonnes per annum liquefaction facility that came onstream with first LNG exports in August 2019.

In a statement commenting on Simões’ appointment, Tellurian Executive Chairman Charif Souki said: “I watched Octávio put together a complex project at Cameron LNG with admiration. He and I together are responsible for 75% of the U.S. liquefaction capacity and I am delighted now to have the opportunity to work with him on Driftwood LNG, the next big milestone in U.S. liquefaction.”
