BG Group announced the appointment of Lim Haw-Kuang as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. Mr Lim, 59, fills the vacancy left by Philippe Varin, who stood down from the board in February after almost seven years as a Non-Executive Director with BG Group.
Commenting on the appointment, BG Group Chairman Andrew Gould said: “I am delighted to welcome Haw-Kuang to the BG Group board. He has extensive experience across the international oil and gas industry, including long service as a senior executive in China, the world’s fastest growing energy market.
“This gives him a background highly relevant to BG Group as the Company becomes China’s largest supplier of liquefied natural gas through long-term agreements with CNOOC,” Mr Gould said.
BG Group confirms that there are no details to be disclosed under paragraphs 9.6.13 (2) – (6) of the Listing Rules of the United Kingdom Listing Authority. Other than as noted below, Mr Lim has held no directorships in publicly quoted companies in the past five years.
