New York-listed Golar LNG is tackling a looming bond maturity by testing the water with investors for a new issue.

The company also announced new loans of up to $382m.

Investment banks DNB Markets and Pareto Securities have been brought in as global coordinators for the bond deal, while Danske Bank and Nordea Markets are lead arrangers.

They will arrange a series of fixed-income investor calls from 4 October.
