LNGL has also announced that Nimalan Gnanendran has been appointed to the position of LNGL Technology Manager.

Nimalan has worked for the company since 2010, and during his time has worked extensively on the development of the OSMR process.

Maurice Brand, the LNGL Managing Director and CEO, said: “The appointments of Anthony and John at the corporate level, greatly enhance the depth of the LNGL leadership group and are building blocks towards capitalising on recent announcements on Magnolia LNG, its progress to financial close as well as capturing new value enhancing LNG opportunities. I am very excited about working with Anthony and to continue working with John and his team, which together has done an outstanding job on the delivery of the EPC Contract for Magnolia LNG based on the Company’s OSMR technology and project execution business model. I am also delighted that Nim has accepted the appointment to the new position of LNGL Technology Manager. He will work closely with John in delivering the next phase of the OSMR process technology and development of mid-scale LNG opportunities.”

All three of these appointments will be effective from 1 December 2015.
