“Steelhead LNG is at an exciting point and has the potential to be a game changer in the LNG industry,” said Mr. Sullivan. “I look forward to overseeing the next phase of development of the company’s At-Shore LNG export projects, which have the potential to deliver some of the lowest cost LNG to international markets.”
