Magnolia LNG completes management appointments

LNG Industry,

Liquefied Natural Gas Limited has announced that Magnolia LNG (MLNG) has completed the staffing of its senior management team, with two final appointments.

Richard Wheeler

Richard Wheeler has joined MLNG as Process Technology Manager. In this role, Wheeler will be responsible for management of process technology applications and interfaces, including application of LNG Ltd’s OSMR® technology. Wheeler will lead technology interface on behalf of MLNG with other process licensors (e.g. BASF for the acid gas removal system), major rotating equipment and package equipment suppliers, and provide technology support to the KBR-SKE&C USA contractor joint venture. Wheeler will also support the expansion of the OSMR® process application to subsequent projects.

Maury Brandon Hudson

Maury Brandon Hudson has joined MLNG as Vice President, Operations and Maintenance. In this role, he will be responsible for establishing and managing the operations and maintenance (O&M) team that will start up and operate the MLNG facility. This will include supporting the KBR-SKE&C USA joint venture in the EPC phase, leading into commissioning, start-up and full operations, with an emphasis on developing a strong safety culture at the LNG facility. Hudson will also be responsible for supporting the transition of the MLNG operations strategy into subsequent LNG Ltd OSMR® opportunities.


MLNG Chief Operating Officer, John Baguley, commented: “We are very pleased to have Maury and Richard joining our MLNG management team. They significantly strengthen two key areas of our project delivery – the core LNG process technology and the operational facility planning and execution. With these two appointments, MLNG now has staffed our full complement of leadership positions, and we are well positioned to make our planned transition into EPC delivery in the middle of 2015 in support of putting the first Magnolia LNG train safely into full and reliable operations by the end of 2018.”
