Norway’s floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) giant Höegh LNG said on Thursday that Thomas Thorkildsen has rejoined the company as head of marketing for business development.

Thorkildsen left Höegh LNG in January last year to join Oslo-listed Flex LNG, the shipping company controlled by billionaire John Fredriksen.

Prior to that, Thorkildsen has spent the previous 13 years with Höegh LNG where, as head of business development, he was responsible for the development of the FSRU opportunities.

However, according to a report by Reuters on Thursday, Flex LNG, which had previously planned to develop several FSRU projects, has dropped its interest in operating these types of vessels due to project failures and low return and is now focusing only on LNG carriers.

Flex LNG also announced on Thursday that its current chief executive Jonathan Cook, had stepped down. Cook was founding partner of the US-based FSRU specialist Excelerate Energy.
