Sep.13.2022, Auckland ------ The Asia Natural Gas & Energy Association (ANGEA) has announced the appointment of Mr. Paul Everingham, a highly respected energy industry leader, as its inaugural CEO.
Mr. Everingham joins ANGEA after serving as the CEO of Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia and leading the sector's response to the challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic. He brings an exceptional track record in leading successful organizations and operating at the intersection of economic and sustainability issues to lead ANGEA through the next stages of its growth.
"Now is a critical time for policy decisions throughout the Asia-Pacific region, where the private sector expertise can meaningfully contribute to public interests by helping governments reach their energy and environmental goals," Mr. Everingham added.
ANGEA is an industry association representing LNG and natural gas producers, energy buyers, suppliers and companies in APAC. Based in Singapore, it works in partnership with governments and societies across the region to deliver reliable and secure energy solutions that achieve national economic, energy security, social and environmental objectives and meet global climate goals.
ANGEA recognizes that natural gas is complementary to new energy solutions, which together enable and accelerate energy transition in nations across the region. As countries increasingly move to newer and renewable forms of energy, ANGEA can examine how a combination of energy sources can support national policy objectives.
ANGEA brings together extensive experience from its founding member companies including Chevron, ExxonMobil, JERA, JGC Corp, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, ConocoPhillips, Santos and Sumitomo/Japan LNG. ANGEA members have extensive capabilities and deep subject matter expertise along the entire energy value chain that can be harnessed as trusted partners in the development of sound policy and technical solutions that deliver low carbon energy solutions and attract the investment needed.
 Nigel Hearne will be appointed Chevron Corp.'s Executive Vice President, Oil, Products & Gas, effective 1 Oct. 2022
