Maranhao has since 2015 been supporting Golar in different functions including as chief financial officer of Golar Power/Hygo Energy Transition until its recent sale to New Fortress Energy.

“Both individuals have deep knowledge about our company, they are good leaders, have strong work ethics, dynamic minds and have delivered solid value to the group over the last years,” Golar’s chairman, Tor Olav Troim, said in the statement.

“Together, with the rest of Golar’s management and board, we are convinced that the company has a strong management team ready to stream-line Golar’s existing operations and also explore the opportunities we see in the LNG market today,” he said.
