Alfred Sorensen, President and CEO of Pieridae Energy, was pleased to join Hon. Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, and Hon. Edward Fast, Canada’s Minister of International Trade, as part of the Canadian delegation on a trade mission to Germany in March 2014.
Sorensen met with Prime Minister Harper, Minister Fast, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and other government and business leaders to discuss international trade between Canada and Germany.
In June 2013, Pieridae entered into a 20-year sales agreement with German-based E.ON Global Commodities SE, a subsidiary of one of the world’s largest investor-owned power and gas companies, to deliver approximately 5 MTPA of LNG from Goldboro LNG to E.ON.
Sorensen sees Goldboro LNG, North America’s closest mainland LNG export terminal to Europe, as having an important role in the long-term energy solution for Germany and other European nations.
