According to the statement, Doljanin joined Avenir LNG in August this year as COO. He brings 15 years of LNG trading and commercial experience with PetroChina, Gazprom, EON and BP.
Doljanin said: “This is an exciting time for Avenir LNG, a company which is uniquely placed to provide LNG to small scale LNG customers who were previously unable to access the fuel’s environmental and commercial benefits.”
Doljanin replaces Andrew Pickering, who will retire as CEO of Avenir LNG Ltd on 13 December 2019. Pickering has spent nearly 40 years with Stolt-Nielsen Ltd, the last five years heading the LNG group, which led to the launch of Avenir LNG Ltd in 2018.
Pickering said: “We started with a vision in 2014 and with the commitment of our shareholders built a solid organisation ready for the next phase of LNG distribution. It is with great confidence that I hand over the reins to Milorad.”
Niels G. Stolt-Nielsen, Chairman of Avenir LNG, added: “I would like to thank Andrew for the excellent work he has done in establishing Avenir LNG and look forward to working with Milorad in continuing to develop the many exciting opportunities lying ahead for Avenir LNG.”
