Tellurian has added two new members to its executive leadership team.
Kian Granmayeh has been promoted to the role of Chief Financial Officer from his former position as Director of Investor Relations. He will be responsible for financial strategy and liquidity.
Mr Granmayeh replaces Antoine Lafargue, who will take on the new position of Senior Vice President of LNG Marketing. Mr Lafargue will work to advance commercialization of Tellurian’s Driftwood project.
In addition, Amos Hochstein will take on the position of Executive Vice President of LNG Marketing, moving from his previous job as Senior Vice President of LNG Marketing. He will lead the marketing of LNG and partnership interests from Driftwood LNG.
The other members of the executive leadership team, EVP and Chief Operating Officer Keith Teague, EVP and General Counsel Daniel Belhumeur, EVP and President of Tellurian Trading UK Tarek Souki, and EVP of Upstream and President of Tellurian Production Company John Howie will each continue in their current roles.
President and CEO Meg Gentle said: “We are reducing our costs and reorganizing the company to make Tellurian resilient in the face of current challenges in financial and energy markets. We are redirecting resources to complete the marketing of the Driftwood LNG project, which is fully permitted and ready to begin construction. Amos’s experience in LNG markets and expertise in negotiations brings together key elements to complete our Driftwood partnership. With a broad background across the finance organization, Kian will be focused on capital discipline and refinancing our existing obligations to extend our liquidity.”
