Former PETRONAS chief named chairman of energy company

Dateline 2013-04-05, The Malaysian Insider:

Former Petronas CEO Tan Sri Hassan Marican has been named as chairman of Pavilion Energy Pte, a new energy company under Singapore’s investment fund Temasek Holdings.

Hassan, who left the national oil company at the beginning of 2010 allegedly due to friction with the government, has been accepting directorships with several foreign firms in the energy sector, including as chairman of Singapore Power Ltd in February last year.

According to a Bloomberg report, Hassan was appointed together with chief executive Seah Moon Ming who joined Temasek in March.

The report pointed out that Pavilion Energy was set up with an initial authorised capital of S$1 billion (RM2.47 billion), to capitalise on the growing demands in Asia, especially on liquefied natural gas (LNG).
