Job Description

Golar Management Limited

Job Title: Assistant Financial Analyst


About the Company

We are one of the world’s largest independent owners and operators of marine-based LNG midstream infrastructure – active in the liquefaction, transportation and regasification of natural gas. These are exciting times for Golar with a strategy to expand our footprint across the LNG value chain. We are leaders in emerging FLNG technology, having recently completed the world’s first FLNG vessel conversion, the Hilli Episeyo, which commenced operations in Cameroon in June 2018.  We are also expanding into power generation and usage of LNG through our Golar Power Joint Venture, through which we are currently constructing a 1.5GW natural gas fired power plant in Sergipe, Brazil with local partners.

About the Team
