Tellurian Inc. has made another executive leadership change, this time choosing to part ways with its CEO, as it tries to fast track development of its Driftwood LNG project.

The Houston-based company has been awash in personnel and strategy shifts since December, when its board of directors moved to dismiss co-founder and executive chairman Charif Souki.

In the latest shuffle, Tellurian disclosed in a recent filing that the board chose not to renew CEO Octávio Simões’ contract. His current contract expires in June. Tellurian’s other co-founder, Martin Houston, was named executive chairman days earlier.
