Golar LNG Partners appoints new CEO

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.

Robjohns also stepped down as chief financial officer and deputy CEO of parent company Golar LNG.

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

Staubo has ten years of experience advising and investing in shipping, energy and infrastructure companies from Magni Partners and Clarksons Platou Securities.

During his time with Magni Partners, Staubo has also been working as an advisor to the Golar group in the financing of the company including the proposed $400 million bond financing.

Golar LNG Partners fleet consists of ten vessels out of which four are LNG carriers and six floating storage and regasification units.
