US offshore mooring giant Sofec is appointing a new chief executive just 18 months after the current leader took up post.

Sofec is a subsidiary of Japanese floating production, storage and offloading giant Modec, which announced that Arun Duggal will be promoted to chief executive and president from 30 September 2022.

Duggal is currently Sofec’s chief technology officer and will replace Brent Konstanzer, who had been with the company since 2002 and who was promoted to the chief executive role last March.
