BG Group moves LNG, oil trading headquarters to Singapore

April 8, 2014

BG Group has moved its headquarters for global oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG) trading to Singapore from the United Kingdom to be closer to customers in the fast growing Asian region, the company said on April 7, Reuters has reported.

Singapore is emerging as a key location for trading firms that seek to tap in to the booming demand for resources from Asia, which is home to top LNG buyers Japan and South Korea.

"Asia is the world's largest market for LNG and where BG Group already sends the majority of its cargoes," the firm's president for global LNG and oil marketing, Steve Hill, said in a statement. Hill has also relocated to Singapore.
