Golar LNG Names Smith as CEO

Golar LNG Ltd said Oscar Spieler would replace Gary Smith as chief executive, as the natural gas shipping company realigns operations, including building up its presence in the Brazilian power generation market.
 
The company said on Tuesday it was in talks with a private equity firm for investments in Golar Power, its unit that holds an interest in a 1.5 gigawatt power station in Sergipe, Brazil.
 
Spieler, who was Golar LNG's chief executive between July 2009 and June 2011, was responsible for the company's first floating liquefied natural gas project.
