Her clear leadership has brought the JERAGM LNG business to a successful launch and she has built a solid team and strong basis to carry it forward.  Sarah will continue to provide advisory support to JERAGM as the Company transitions to a new leadership structure in the LNG team. I would like to personally, and on behalf of the shareholders, thank Sarah for her contribution and to wish her the best in her future endeavours.
