Liquefied Natural Gas Limited is pleased to announce the appointment of Philip D Moeller as a US-based Non-Executive Director of LNGL as of December 7, 2015.
Former Commissioner Philip Moeller left the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in
October 2015 as the second-longest serving member in the history of FERC. He left office as the only person in the federal government in a Senate-confirmed position who was nominated by both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama.
While serving on the Commission he focused on policies that encourage the construction of additional electric transmission and interstate natural gas infrastructure and policies promoting well-functioning wholesale markets. He was a national leader in promoting improved coordination between the electric industry and the natural gas industries as the United States moves toward burning significantly more natural gas to meet electricity demand.
Prior to serving on the Commission he headed the Washington office of Alliant Energy, worked in the Washington office of Calpine Corporation, and served on the Washington, D.C. staff of Senator Slade Gorton from his home state of Washington. Previously he was the staff coordinator of the Washington State Senate Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Committee in Olympia, Washington.
LNGL Chairman Richard Beresford said “We are honoured to have someone of Philip’s recent energy regulatory and US Government background join the LNGL Board. His experience and knowledge of US Government policy and interaction with other key Government Departments will be very important in achieving the Company’s growth ambitions. Being based in Washington DC will also enable him to interact regularly with our corporate and project teams in Houston.”
