Ousted Cheniere CEO to partner in new LNG company

Former Cheniere CEO Charif Souki is partnering with Martin Houston, former COO and executive director of BG Group and current chairman of Parallax Energy, in a new company called Tellurian Investments, which will focus on mid-scale natural gas liquefaction and export projects on the US Gulf Coast, according to various media outlets.

Souki was ousted as Cheniere CEO in December 2015, and he resigned from the company’s board in February. While at Cheniere, Souki helped lead the company in becoming a frontrunner in liquefied natural gas exports.

Tellurian has selected Bechtel Oil, Gas & Chemicals for plant construction and Chart Industries for its liquefaction technology.
