Former Cheniere CEO Souki resigns from board

Former Cheniere Energy CEO Charif Souki, who was replaced in December 2015, has resigned from the company’s board, according to Bloomberg, citing a filing that Cheniere made to the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Souki was replaced as CEO late last year after finding himself at odds with company investor Carl Icahn, who reportedly disagreed with Souki’s plan to speed the growth of Cheniere’s liquefied natural gas projects. Souki left the company just weeks before Cheniere was scheduled to export the first-ever cargo of US shale gas – a shipment that has now been delayed until late February or later.
