Nigeria's NLNG replaces CEO
Nigeria LNG (NLNG), the consortium responsible for Nigeria's LNG exports, announced on July 9 it had appointed a new CEO Philip Mshelbila to replace current head Tony Attah.
Attah, who also served as chairman of the board of Shell Nigeria, a shareholder in NLNG, will leave his role at the consortium on August 30, 2021. He was appointed there in July 2016. Attah notably oversaw a final investment decision in December 2019 on constructing NLNG's seventh liquefaction train, boosting its LNG export capacity from 22.5mn to 30mn metric tons/year.
Mshelbila is a former general manager of gas at Shell Nigeria and a director of Nigeria-based Shell Petroleum Development Co. He is currently the CEO of Atlantic LNG, in Trinidad and Tobago.
Shell has a 25.6% interest in NLNG, while Nigeria's state-owned NNPC has 49%, TotalEnergies 15% and Italy's Eni 10.4%.
