Dear Colleagues and members of the NGC Group Family;
End of year is always a time to reflect on the growth, achievements and lessons of the past few months. As we prepare to turn our calendars to 2020, we should pause and give thought to the journey we have made this year. 2019 was challenging, but guided by our group strategic pillars, we continued to build on the work of 2018 to create a stable platform from which to meet the year ahead.
NGC continued its efforts to secure gas for the downstream sector, commendably completing important negotiations with Shell. Other exploration and production developments in the upstream also look promising for future supply and the Company’s business stability. In terms of growth, NGC expanded its footprint internationally through a landmark partnership with China, as well as participation at global conferences and events, including Gastech 2019 and AMCHAM’s inaugural HSSE conference in Guyana. The Company also deepened participation in the LNG value chain, marketing cargoes directly through its Commodity Trading Desk. Leadership was strengthened with training, and employee development continued to receive attention.
