"It is not unusual on large-scale energy projects for the CEO role to transition following a final investment decision," LNG Canada noted in a news release Monday.

"In the past six years, since joining LNG Canada following a 23-year career working directly for Shell, Calitz brought innovation to the delivery of the largest private sector investment in Canadian history. Calitz will be returning to Shell."

Peter Zebedee will take on the role on CEO at LNG Canada, and will move from Edmonton to Vancouver. The transition takes effect July 1.

Zebedee is currently Vice President Canada Manufacturing and GM Scotford at Shell, and brings more than 22 years of industry experience to his new role, the company said.

"A geological engineer and graduate of the University of British Columbia, Zebedee is responsible for all elements of Shell’s downstream manufacturing portfolio in Canada, including all operations at the Shell Scotford complex and the operation of Quest carbon capture and storage facility (CCS), one of the most effective GHG-reduction technologies," the company said.
