Golar LNG: Sale of shares in New Fortress Energy


Golar LNG announced that it has sold approximately one third of the 18.6 million New Fortress Energy shares received upon completion of the sale of Hygo Energy Transition to NFE in April 2021.

The sale is expected to raise net proceeds of approximately $250 million which Golar will seek to deploy to FLNG growth projects.

Commenting on the sale, Golar CEO Karl Fredrik Staubo said “Golar is excited about new FLNG growth prospects, including those being pursued by NFE and plans to remain a supportive shareholder for the foreseeable future”.
