LoneStar – LNG
ROBERT M SHIVERS III is a principal with LoneStar FLNG, an offshore development solutions group in Houston, TX he co-founded to utilize its proprietary FLNG technology to monetize stranded natural gas fields around the world.
Prior to cofounding LONESTAR, Robert spent 30 years designing and managing drilling and development projects in the Gulf of Mexico and UK North Sea. He has been recognized for his patented technologies and practical solutions in many areas of drilling, and development from offshore shallow and deep-waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea and floating LNG.
He began his career with Getty/Texaco E&P where he managed a wide array of Gulf of Mexico drilling projects before moving to the UK to work on North Sea drilling and field development projects. After Texaco he joined ATP Oil & Gas and managed their first deepwater project in the Gulf of Mexico, the Gomez Floating Production Facility. Robert also managed the Telemark Hub development which entailed design and building the MinDOC floating drilling/platform, the first dry-tree capable deepwater production facility built completely within the US.
He began working on floating LNG concepts in 2010 as a means to monetize small, stranded gas fields and has since developed three generations of innovative, proprietary floating LNG technology.
Robert holds a B.S., M. Eng. and D. Eng. degrees in mechanical engineering from Texas A & M University and holds over 30 US patents covering drilling, field development, natural gas and floating liquefaction technologies.
