Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd. (LNGL) has appointed Philip D. Moeller non-executive director. He is the Australian company's third U.S.-based non-executive director. Former FERC Commissioner Moeller left the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in October as the second-longest serving member in its history (see Daily GPI, Oct. 6). Prior to serving on the Commission, he headed the Washington office of Alliant Energy, worked in the Washington office of Calpine Corp., and served on the Washington, DC, staff of Sen. Slade Gorton from his home state of Washington. Previously, he was the staff coordinator of the Washington State Senate Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Committee in Olympia, WA. Moeller is a graduate of Stanford University. "His experience and knowledge of U.S. government policy and interaction with other key government departments will be very important in achieving the company's growth ambitions," said LNGL Chairman Richard Beresford. "Being based in Washington, DC, will also enable him to interact regularly with our corporate and project teams in Houston." LNGL unit Magnolia LNG LLC is developing an LNG export terminal in Louisiana (see Daily GPI, Nov. 16), and its Bear Head LNG Corp. unit is developing a terminal in Nova Scotia (see Daily GPI, July 20).
