LNG Canada CEO Changing

Kathy Brookes

There's a change coming at the top at LNG Canada.

The company has announced that CEO Andy Calitz will be returning to Shell on July 1st and a new CEO will take over.

Shell is the leading partner in the LNG Canada joint venture.

A news release from LNG Canada says it's not unusual for the CEO role to transition on large-scale energy projects following a final investment decision.

Calitz has been with LNG Canada for six years as it worked to solidify plans and start work on the massive project to pipe natural gas from northeastern B.C. to Kitimat for liquefaction and export.

Shell Canada President Michael Crothers says Calitz's focus on "building relationships with communities, First Nations, governments and partners before building the project will leave a legacy that moves with L-N-G Canada into its next chapter".

His replacement -- Peter Zebedee -- is a Canadian currently working as a Vice-President of Manufacturing for Shell in Canada.

He'll be relocating from Edmonton to Vancouver.
