Frédéric Hannon - Naval Architect and Petroleum Engineer

His experience in LNG began 25 years ago with Gaz Transport (now GTT), which was then a subsidiary of Total. He was head of R&D and LNG Carrier Project Manager.

Since 1998, he was seconded several times to Group projects in Asia and the US before joining the Paris head office in 2008. His extensive experience both as a test engineer and project manager, along with his varied course through Exploration & Production and Gas, led to his involvement in the beginnings of large industrial complexes. He operated a fleet of gas tankers, participated in the design of marine infrastructures for LNG terminals, audited other terminal projects and proposed innovative shipping solutions.

He recently worked on the design of the ice-breaker gas tanker for the Yamal LNG project and on the development of the port at Sabetta, in Siberia. He won the Exploration & Production prize for innovation in 2014.
