Freeport LNG Announces Sig Cornelius To Serve As President And Chief Operating Officer

HOUSTON, Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Freeport LNG today announced that it has selected Sigmund (Sig) Cornelius, 59, to succeed Charles Reimer, 69, as president and chief operating officer, effective April 1, 2014.

"This leadership change comes at a critical time for our company," said Michael S. Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Freeport LNG.  "Having worked closely with our management team on a number of critical projects during his time with ConocoPhillips and after retiring, Sig is uniquely positioned to help lead this company.  He has broad energy experience and a deep understanding of this industry as well as this company, which will serve us well as we continue to develop and construct our three train liquefaction terminal."

Cornelius is the retired Senior Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer of ConocoPhillips, where he had a 30-year career which included over 14 years of operational P&L responsibilities covering domestic and international exploration and production operations and natural gas processing divisions. This includes serving as President, Global Gas, with responsibility for all worldwide LNG for ConocoPhillips.   Other roles included President, Lower 48 Exploration & Production Region, President, Lower 48, Latin America and Midstream Operations and Vice President, Upstream Business Development. Cornelius currently sits on the Boards of Carbo Ceramics, USEC, NiSource, Parallel Energy Trust and Western Refining.  Past Board seats include DCP Midstream, DCP Midstream Partners, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, and he also served on the Board of Directors for Freeport LNG from June 2004 to August 2007.  Cornelius will begin with Freeport on January 1, 2014, in anticipation of his new role.

Reimer will continue to serve as a member of the Board and will stay on as advisor to Freeport LNG for at least four years after the final investment decision is made in Freeport LNG Expansion's planned Train 3, which is currently expected by end of 2014. In his capacity as advisor, Reimer will assist in overseeing construction of the planned liquefaction facility.
