Golar LNG: Golar LNG Limited Board Changes

In connection with today's Notice of AGM, Shareholders should note certain
changes to the proposed Board.

Chairman, Sir Frank Chapman, has decided not to stand for re-election at the
forthcoming AGM, to release the two days a week he currently commits to Golar
to focus on other interests. In addition Board member Kate Blankenship has
decided not to stand for re-election due to other professional commitments.
Both members have contributed significantly to the rapid expansion which
currently takes place in Golar. Of special importance has been Sir Frank's
deep understanding of the LNG market and his strategic thinking, and Miss
Blankenship's very solid skills within finance and accounting. The Board
wants to thank both members for their very valuable contributions and wish
them the best in the future.

The Board has nominated Dan Rabun to succeed Sir Frank Chapman as Chairman
after the AGM planned for 23 September, 2015. Mr Rabun has a financial and
legal education and was, until May 2015, Chairman of Ensco PLC. He has a
strong energy background from Ensco and as managing partner in Baker
McKenzie's Dallas office. He is currently a Board member in Apache
Corporation.

The Board is further pleased to announce that Niels Stolt Nielsen has accepted
to be nominated as a candidate to become a Board member. Niels Stolt Nielsen
is major owner and Chairman of the world's leading chemical carrier company,
Stolt Nielsen. He is also the Chairman and founding investor of the LPG
Company, Avance Gas. Mr Stolt Nielsen has extensive shipping, customer
relations and logistical experience which will benefit Golar in the years to
come.

Sir Frank says in connection with his departure "It has been a very busy
year for Golar which has seen much progress on strategy, business development
and communications with our shareholders. The growing list of GoFLNG business
development opportunities serve to confirm the very significant potential of
the strategy, where the company currently enjoys an advantaged competitive
position. I wish Golar every future success in its delivery of this high
potential business proposition."

It is the intention of the Golar Board to replace the one vacancy created by
current changes over the coming months.
