Nasdaq-listed Golar LNG Partners has appointed Karl Fredrik Staubo as its interim chief executive officer.

Golar LNG Partners current CEO Graham Robjohns announced in October last year he was to step down on April 30, 2020.

The partnership said in a statement on Friday that Staubo will take up the role as chief executive with immediate effect.
