Jager moves to Perth from New Zealand, where he served as the Country Chair & VP for Shell New Zealand/Shell Taranaki for over 13 years. Shell announced the sale of its New Zealand interests in March this year.
Jager said: “It is a privilege to join Shell Australia and lead Prelude to successfully deliver gas to our customers across the globe. My focus will be the safe start-up and reliable operations of Prelude in the years to come.”
Jager is taking over from David Bird, who had been leading the Prelude project since 2015. Bird said: “To see Prelude now moored off the coast and being commissioned gives me a great buzz.
“Thank you to the extremely motivated team both within Shell and across our partnerships, contractors and community. It has been a pleasure working with you all. I leave Prelude in Rob’s very safe and experienced hands and will continue to watch with interest as Prelude moves into its next phase of steady operations.”
