26 October 2017 , 12:11Neftegaz.RU1395
Torsten Murin, currently Vice President with responsibility for the Nord Stream&Gas Transport division, will serve as Vice President with responsibility for Wintershall in Russia from 1 January 2018, the company reported on October 25, 2017.
He therefore replaces Margarita Hoffmann, who in turn is taking over Murin’s previous position in Kassel.
Hoffmann will therefore be responsible for Wintershall's interests in the gas transport and transit pipelines, including the Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea and their OPAL and NEL onshore extensions.
43-year-old Murin has been with Wintershall since 2002. After joining Wintershall as part of its trainee program and working in Kassel, the financial economist took over various positions as finance manager – 1st in Argentina, later at Wintershall Russia.
He was a Deputy Finance Director for the Yuzhno Russkoye and Achimgaz projects in Russia.
Since 2013 he has managed Wintershall’s natural gas transport and transit pipeline projects in Kassel.
The Severneftegazprom and Achimgaz joint ventures alone produced 30 billion cubic meters of natural gas in 2016 and have thus become pillars of the European natural gas supply.
Currently Wintershall is working with its partner Gazprom on the development of blocks 4 and 5 in the Achimov formation in the Urengoy natural gas field.
Wintershall Russia’s office has been based in St. Petersburg since August 2017.
