Singapore LNG Terminal To Be Helmed By Energy/Petrochem Veteran Tan Soo Koong

Mr Tan Soo Koong will officially join Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd (SLNG) on 2 April 2019, as its Chief Executive Officer.

He is also recognised within the industry as being a balanced, visionary and authentic leader. With him at the helm, SLNG will continue to be relentless in driving excellence in our Terminal’s operations to ensure security of LNG supply for Singapore; while at the same time, to be that catalyst to grow the LNG business and establish Singapore as the Regional LNG Hub.”
