Following the BG takeover, Jason was appointed Vice President US LNG within Shell’s Integrated Gas business, responsible for leading its development of the Elba Island LNG project near Savannah, Georgia. He subsequently became U.S. Chief of Staff and VP US Energy Transition Strategy.
While working with BG Group, Jason held assignments in the Middle East, Europe, North America and Australia in roles spanning the legal function, upstream operations and LNG developments over a period of 13 years (starting in 2003).
