Gas Infrastructure Europe elects Fluxys' chief commercial officer, Arno Büx, as new President of Gas LNG Europe

Arno Büx

Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE) has elected Arno Büx – Chief Commercial Officer at Fluxys – as the new President of the European LNG terminal operators. The General Assembly made up of gas transmission operators, storage system operators and LNG terminal operators appointed Büx for a 2-year term. 

Commenting on his appointment, Arno Büx said: “It is an honour for me to have been elected as Gas LNG Europe new President at this exciting time for LNG in Europe. The Commission`s new gas package is on its way and in 2020 the IMO regulation will come into force. LNG is a flexible and available source of energy, is a promising alternative fuel in heavy transport, can be synthesized from renewable sources worldwide and can hence contribute to the security of supply and a lower carbon future. We want to be part of the future and with LNG we can achieve this.” 

Arno Büx has been Chief Commercial Officer of Fluxys Group and Fluxys Belgium since autumn 2015. He oversees all commercial activities of Fluxys, both regulated and non-regulated as well as its business development in Europe. Büx holds degrees in Engineering and Business Administration. Before joining Fluxys, he has evolved within the ENGIE Group for 20 years, working in Belgium, France and Luxemburg but mostly contributing to the development of the Group’s energy activities in Germany. He held various executive and non-executive management positions in businesses targeting the B2B and B2C commodity markets as well as the gas midstream sector.

Jean-Marc Leroy, Gas Infrastructure Europe President, said: “We’re delighted to have Arno Büx as our new President for the European LNG terminal operators. Having one of Europe’s biggest gas infrastructure operators at the helm of LNG terminal operators, will certainly be a great asset to us. I’d also like to thank Wim Groenendijk for his excellent work over the past 4 years as GLE President. He has been a core voice in GIE Board and instrumental in driving forward GIE`s efforts on making the economic case for LNG terminal operators in Europe and beyond.”

Gas LNG Europe is further strengthened in its activities by the appointment of four Executive Committee members for a 2-year term and is pleased to welcome the following representatives: Jacques Rottenberg (Elengy, France), Francisco de la Flor (Enagas, Spain), Pieter van Aartsen (Gate terminal, the Netherlands) and Łukasz Trzeszczkowski (GAZ-SYSTEM, Poland). Arno Büx, Francisco de la Flor and Pieter van Aartsen are standing for the European LNG terminal operators in the GIE Board.
