HOUSTON, US: Caliche Development Partners LLC has named industry veteran Ronald Baker as new partner and chief commercial officer.

Caliche is a Houston-based company focused on the development, construction, and operation of subsurface hydrocarbon storage assets and related pipelines in North America.

The creation of this position reflects Caliche's broader effort to expand its Coastal Caverns facility in Beaumont, Texas from the operating ethylene storage business into NGL storage using the two wells under construction.  

In his new role, Ron will draw on 35 years of experience in oil and gas specializing in the midstream sector, including two decades with Koch Industries.  He will be based in Houston and report directly to Dave Marchese, Caliche's chief executive officer, alongside sponsor Energy Spectrum Capital.

Ron advanced to vice president during his tenure with Koch, where he led the development of a successful trading business, first in North America and eventually, around the globe.  Prior to that, Ron held several leadership positions in marketing and business development at Sun E&P, Warren Petroleum and NGC/Dynergy.

"Ron's experience and attitude have already positively impacted Caliche and our relationship with customers," said Marchese.  "The team has done an excellent job entering the ethylene market, and welcomes Ron's focus on capital-efficient, customer-centric asset development as we enter the next phase of our growth.  Ron brings an incomparable understanding of the NGL and olefins value chain that will be crucial to our combined commercial success with our customers."
