Shell’s top LNG trader to head up JERA/EDFT trading operations


LONDON, July 19 (Reuters) – Japan’s JERA Trading (JERAT) has hired Sarah Behbehani, the former head of short-term liquefied natural gas (LNG) trading at Royal Dutch Shell, as the world’s biggest buyer of the fuel bulks up in Asian trading.

Behbehani’s move comes a month after JERA absorbed the LNG trading business of EDF to create JERAT as it looks to break down restrictions on trading cargoes bought under long-term deals.

Industry sources said the trading manager, responsible for a team of eight, resigned from Shell this week and will start her new role in three months.

Shell and JERA declined to comment.
