- LNG Research Program Manager ENGIE Lab CRIGEN
Frederic graduated with an Engineering degree from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Ingénieurs en Arts Chimiques et Technologiques (ENSIACET). He began his career in 2008 as a Research Engineer for the SGN and the CEA (French nuclear industries), working on model simulations, the simulation and optimisation of reprocessing of nuclear fuel waste.
Pioneer since the 50’s in the LNG industry, ENGIE R&D has built an expertise which is recognized throughout the world in the fields of LNG behaviour, Safety, Technology and New Equipment. CRIGEN, the ENGIE Research and Innovation Center in Gas and New energies, conducts advanced research on various LNG subjects, most often through partnership projects. It provides mid and long term vision for the business development of the Group and offers a complete range of services, from in-depth studies to on-field tests.
Since 2011, Frederic has worked as a Research Engineer and Project Manager in the LNG department of CRIGEN. In the context of his work, he has contributed to the modelling, the simulation and the techno-economic evaluation of production and gas treatment processes: CO2 capture, biogas production, energy storage. He has been involved in CRIGEN research in the field of gas liquefaction (business models, public acceptance, technical evaluation of processes).
Frederic has worked as a Research Engineer on different aspects of the whole of the liquefied natural gas chain. More precisely, his main achievements include: dealt with process simulation of natural gas liquefaction process; performed exergetic analysis on liquefaction processes; contributed to the development of liquefaction and regasification plant; participated to the development of boil-off gas monitoring system onboard ENGIE LNG carriers and performed LNG supply chain logistics studies.
