Mukherjee has been named as senior vice-president LNG. He has worldwide expertise in front-end engineering and design, detailed engineering, procurement, contracts, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) including module fabrication and construction related to mega LNG projects and oil and gas in North America and overseas.

Mukherjee will officially join Pieridae on August 27, 2020, Pieridae said in its statement.

Pieridae CEO Alfred Sorensen said, “Andy has worked on modular design and execution of four major global LNG projects: Qatargas NFE LNG, Cameron LNG, INPEX-Ichthys LNG and British Gas QCLNG. His contribution to modularization in Canada is well recognized, and, he has significant exposure to major module yards in Asia.”

Sorensen expects Mukherjee to lead Goldboro LNG through the open book estimate and deliver a lump-sum turnkey EPCC contract for the project to prepare it for a positive final investment decision next year.

Mukherjee has experience working with EPCC contractors such as Jacobs, Worley, SNC Lavalin, Bechtel and FLUOR, in addition to managing EPCC contractors Wood Group, McDermott, KBR, Chiyoda and JGC for fixed price contracts.

He is also adept at working with multiple stakeholders, including government agencies, First Nations, contractors, subcontractors, vendors, third party agencies, auditors and trade unions, the statement reads.
