QGC Names Mitch Ingram as Next MD

QGC, a BG unit, said that Deputy Managing Director Mitch Ingram will succeed Derek Fisher as Managing Director on 2 April 2014.

Ingram has been Deputy Managing Director since last September and Project Director of the Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) Project since May 2012.

Under his leadership of QCLNG the project has made significant advances, including first delivery of gas to Curtis Island as planned last December after completion of the 540km pipeline network. Mr Ingram will continue to oversee the project, which is now in the final stages of construction ahead of commissioning. First LNG is expected in the fourth quarter this year.

Before joining QGC, Ingram was Asset General Manager of BG Group’s Karachaganak interests in Kazakhstan. He joined BG Group in 2006 after 20 years with Occidental Oil & Gas where he held several UK and international leadership positions in project management, developments and operations. In his new role Mr Ingram will continue to oversee QCLNG.

Commenting on the appointment, BG Group Chief Operating Officer Sami Iskander said: “Mitch is the natural successor to Derek. Through his roles as Deputy Managing Director and QCLNG Project Director, he knows the business well. Now that the project is in its final stages it is the right time to hand over.”

Fisher is retiring after 16 years with BG Group, which included numerous senior executive positions in the Group’s international operating businesses. During the past six months Mr Ingram has supported him in all aspects of the business and they will continue to work closely during the handover period. Mr Fisher will remain with QGC to support the business in the lead-up to his retirement on 31 July 2014.

Iskander said: “I would like to thank Derek for his strong and steady leadership of QGC over the past two years, in which he has redoubled efforts to ensure BG Group’s business in Australia is focused on delivery, safety and working with the community.”

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
