Arup has announced the appointment of senior LNG specialist, Richard Mortimer.

Mr Mortimer has more than 28 years’ experience developing major projects around the world including the synfuels complex built in South Africa for PetroSA, the Santos GLNG project in Australia, and the Mozambique Gas Development Project for Anadarko.

Based in Hong Kong, his focus will be on the development of LNG liquefaction, regasification and storage facilities worldwide.

Mr Mortimer said: “Arup’s strength in the market is that it has engineers and naval architects as well as business and investor advisors all under one roof. We are able to bring both technical and consulting services to our clients – and see projects through from inception through to operation. I look forward to helping to bring the best of what Arup can deliver for client’s projects worldwide in enhancing value and reducing risk.”

Peter Thompson, East Asia Energy leader at Arup, added: “We’ve experienced considerable success, particularly in the last 12 months in East Asia. We are seeing significant interest in onshore LNG receiving terminals, floating storage regasification unit’s (FSRU’s) and associated onshore infrastructure. As populations develop and economies strengthen, soaring energy demands means that smooth supply is needed. Richard’s wealth of experience will form a key part of our LNG business to meet this continuous growth.”
