US liquefied natural gas (LNG) export player, NextDecade appointed Matt Schatzman as the company’s new president.

In this newly created position, Schatzman will report to chief executive Kathleen Eisbrenner and will strengthen NextDecade’s management team as it works towards final investment decisions on the Rio Grande LNG and Rio Bravo pipeline projects, the LNG developer said in a statement.
