Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd. has named John G. Baguley as chief operating officer and Rick R. Cape as chief commercial officer for the company’s wholly owned, Houston-based subsidiary Magnolia LNG LLC (MLNG). Both executives will report directly to Maurice Brand, MLNG president.
Baguley has served more than 30 years at KBR Inc., including the last 13 years as a project director in the delivery of front-end engineering design and EPC services for major LNG plants and projects in Indonesia, Australia, Canada, China, Taiwan, and Malaysia.
He also has served as the company’s vice-president, LNG development, and currently serves as vice-president, project management, in KBR’s gas monetization business unit.
Cape spent more than 20 years with BP Group in the US, UK, Australia, and the Caribbean. In 2002, he was elected by the shareholders of Trinidad and Tobago’s Atlantic LNG Co. as the company’s president and chief executive officer, where he oversaw the growth of Atlantic LNG from a single train to its current four-train, 15 million tonne/year capacity.
LNG Ltd. in January signed a binding pipeline capacity agreement with Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline for MLNG, securing sufficient firm gas transportation for the plant’s full 8-million tpy capacity. Magnolia will use four 2-million tpy trains (OGJ, Apr. 7, 2014, p. 108).
