The Center for LNG (CLNG) has named Charlie Riedl as the executive director of CLNG, a trade association representing liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers, shippers, terminal operators, and developers. In addition to appointing an executive director, the boards of CLNG and the Natural Gas Supply Association (NGSA) have approved and implemented CLNG’s merger with NGSA.
As executive director, Riedl will lead CLNG in its advocacy and public education initiatives that enhance greater understanding of LNG and, at the same time, encourage public policies that recognize and support LNG’s contribution toward economic growth in the US. In addition to leading CLNG, Riedl will serve as a senior vice president of the Natural Gas Supply Association, as part of the recent combination of the two organizations.
Before joining CLNG, Riedl most recently was director of market development for America’s Natural Gas Alliance, where he helped develop and manage outreach to key transportation sectors to encourage their increased use of natural gas.
