EIG, a leading institutional investor to the global energy and infrastructure sectors, today announced that De la Rey Venter has joined the firm as Chief Executive Officer of MidOcean Energy (“MidOcean”) and as a Managing Director of EIG.

Blair Thomas, EIG’s Chairman and CEO. “EIG has long been a key capital provider to the sector and has already invested in nine LNG projects, globally, involving both liquefaction and regasification. Adding someone of De la Rey’s caliber to lead MidOcean further demonstrates our commitment to LNG and the energy transition. We welcome De la Rey aboard and are excited about the future that he will help develop for MidOcean.”
Mr. Venter added, “EIG's vision for MidOcean presents a compelling proposition for a world that will need LNG for a long time to come. We share a strong belief in the important role of LNG, as part of a family of low and no carbon gasses, to help the world transition to a Net Zero future. I look forward to working with the team to build a business of substance, based on EIG’s extensive track record in global LNG, and for this business to have real impact in this highly relevant sector of the global energy industry.”
Mr. Venter first joined Shell in 2002. In addition to his roles as EVP of Integrated Gas Ventures and Global Head of LNG, he has held diverse positions globally, including EVP Upstream Joint Ventures, EVP Gas & Power Africa, and VP Commercial in Qatar.

RegTech heavyweight Coinfirm – in its award-winning AML Platform – has introduced support for cross-blockchain risk analysis, in addition to rolling out Entity Due Diligence (Entity DD).
