CMP introduces new Oil business

Brian Kristensen has been appointed General Manager, Oil.

This is a position that involves a lot more than just keeping an eye on the oil terminals in Malmö and Copenhagen, which together comprise the largest terminal for liquid bulk in the Øresund Region. As General Manager for the Oil business, Brian is also responsible for all dry bulk activities in Copenhagen, as well as the development and letting of CMP's areas outside of Frihavnen in the city.

“We have a number of exciting projects ongoing. For example, we will shortly be taking over an area of 180,000 m² at Prøvestenen in Copenhagen, which we will rent from CPH City and Port Development, otherwise known as By og Havn. Together with new and existing customers, we intend to develop this site by adding reception and storage facilities. These will prove useful when major construction projects in the nearby metropolitan area get under way,” says Brian.

Our General Manager, Oil has plenty of previous experience. Like so many others at Copenhagen Malmö Port, Brian Kristensen began his career at sea. He trained as a navigator and naval officer with A.P. Møller, where for a number of years he was involved in the transport of oil and gas. Brian joined Port of Copenhagen in 1996, where he worked in Maritime Service, assuming a variety of roles including Harbour Master at Prøvestenen. For the past ten years he has worked at Frihavnen and been involved in stevedoring; Brian has also been General Manager, Container for the past six years.

“I will now be back working with oil and gas, so really I've come full circle,” he says.
