Singapore LNG Corp. Pte Ltd (SLNG) has announced that Tan Soo Koong will officially join the company as its Chief Executive Officer on 2 April.
A 30-year veteran of the energy/petrochemical sector, Mr Tan joins SLNG from Vopak Terminals Singapore, where he oversaw five terminals that together generate a sizeable portion of Vopak’s global revenue. Prior to joining Vopak, his earlier roles included managing the operations and business of Titan Petrochemicals’ olefins and aromatics business unit, and leading the manufacturing function at GE Plastics SEA.
Mr Tan takes over from Mr John Ng, who stepped down in December 2018.
Chairman of SLNG, Tang Kin Fei, said: “Soo Koong brings to SLNG a wealth of operational, technical and commercial experience in terminalling, production and manufacturing. 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.”
