Aker Solutions of Norway hired four LNG specialists to bolster its liquefied natural gas capabilities to capitalize on the expected surge in global demand for the fuel.
Demand for gas is expected to outpace oil and coal over the next 20 years, with LNG consumption more than doubling, as the world increasingly moves to low-carbon energy, Aker Solutions said in a statement.
“We’re now in a strong position to develop cost-effective integrated gas solutions from reservoir to market, providing our customers the solutions they need to develop these new and often complex gas projects,” executive vice president Knut Nyborg said.
The additions to Aker Solutions’ LNG and gas processing team strengthen the company’s ability to integrate the various phases of an offshore gas development from early feasibility studies to delivery.
The company is currently involved in a number of LNG projects, including a liquefaction facility in the U.S. and a floating LNG facility in West Africa.
