New CEO takes helm at India’s Petronet LNG

Akshay Kumar Singh on Monday started his role as managing director and chief executive of India’s Petronet LNG.

He succeeds Prabhat Singh who completed a five-term term at India’s largest LNG importer in September last year.

According to Petronet, Akshay Kumar Singh has more than three decades of experience in the petroleum and natural gas sector.

He previously served as director for pipelines at Indian Oil Corporation but also as an executive director at Gail. Both of these firms hold shares in Petronet.

Petronet operates the 17 mtpa Dahej LNG terminal in Gujarat, India’s first such facility, but also the 5 mtpa Kochi facility that recently received a boost with the inauguration of a long-awaited pipeline.
