Gunvor appoints new global co-heads of LNG trading
LONDON, (Reuters) - Energy trader Gunvor Group has appointed two new global co-heads of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) trading division, sources familiar with the matter said.
The moves are the latest personnel changes at Gunvor, one of the world's biggest traders.
Kalpesh Patel, based in Singapore, and Ksenia Alleyne, based in Geneva, will jointly run the LNG trading desk for the Swiss firm.
Stephane Caudron, who has been the global head of LNG since 2009, will take on the role of global head of LNG business development out of Singapore.
Gunvor went through major restructuring last year which included the expansion of its executive board, job losses across the company, a new natural gas trading desk in London and the closure of its Bahamas crude trading office in favour of its Houston base.
The restructuring was also aimed at promoting a new generation at the Geneva-based firm which was founded in 2000.
Some long-time Gunvor executives left, including the global head of crude Jose Orti who retired at the end of 2018. Stephane Dejenne then replaced Orti as the new global head of crude. (Reporting by Julia Payne; writing by Nina Chestney; editing by Susan Fenton)
A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives
By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
