Merlin Associates was founded in 1983 by founder and President, Charles Yost. Merlin Associates had been the technical consultant to the financing community on most LNG base load grass-roots installations and LNG expansions built since 1983. In 2013, Merlin Associates officially merged into Poten & Partners’ LNG engineering and technical due diligence group. The new entity, now known as Merlin Advisors, was officially established.
The merger of Merlin into Poten brought together two experienced advisors in the LNG business, with both having provided services for more than thirty years. The two companies have an unparalleled depth and breadth of experience across all facets of the business, from technical and shipping through market and commercial. Merlin and Poten had also long-collaborated to produce Cost and Competition, the definitive LNG industry project cost benchmarking product.
Since the merger, Merlin Advisors has grown into a fully staffed company – compiled of leading engineers, technical consultants and advisors with offices throughout the world.
