NextDecade Corporation has announced that Dr. Ping Lee has joined the Company as Senior Vice President, LNG Marketing – China and Southeast Asia. This follows NextDecade’s announcement earlier this year that it had opened offices in Singapore and Beijing to serve customers throughout Asia.
“The appointment of Ping marks another strong addition to our marketing capabilities to serve the world’s largest and fastest growing LNG markets,” said Matt Schatzman, NextDecade President & Chief Executive Officer. “His longstanding experience in key markets, especially China, will prove invaluable as we progress to a successful Final Investment Decision on our Rio Grande LNG project.”
Lee is the former President and Asset General Manager of BG Group, China, a position he held until 2016. In that role, Lee was instrumental in building BG Group’s commercial and E&P interests; before its acquisition by Shell, BG Group had become China’s largest LNG supplier.
“I am honored to join the NextDecade team,” said Lee, who is based in, and will lead, NextDecade’s Beijing representative office. “I believe the significant competitive advantages of the Rio Grande LNG project, including its market-leading EPC costs and its proximity to abundant natural gas reserves in the Permian Basin, are extremely compelling to prospective customers in China and throughout Asia.”
