Shell Australia welcomes new VP Prelude
Nov 27, 2018
Shell Australia welcomes Rob Jager to Perth as the new VP Prelude, taking the reins from David Bird who will be finishing his assignment on 30 November 2018.
Rob moves to Perth from New Zealand, where he was the Country Chair & VP for Shell New Zealand / Shell Taranaki for more than 13 years. Shell announced the sale of its New Zealand interests in March 2018.
"It is a privilege to join Shell Australia and lead Prelude to successfully deliver gas to our customers across the globe. My focus will be the safe start-up and reliable operations of Prelude in the years to come” he said.
David Bird has been leading Prelude since 2015. He said that he has seen Prelude shift from a project under construction in Geoje, South Korea, to a facility safely moored offshore and being commissioned.
“To see Prelude now moored off the coast and being commissioned gives me a great buzz” he said.
“Thank you to the extremely motivated team both within Shell and across our partnerships, contractors and community. It has been a pleasure working with you all. I leave Prelude in Rob’s very safe and experienced hands and will continue to watch with interest as Prelude moves into its next phase of steady operations”.
