Chief Commercial Officer for Coal, LNG and Freight David Finch said the deal is a key step in its strategic vision and also a vehicle to continue to grow its presence in the U.S. coal and electric power markets. “We could not be off to a better start with such key players in the coal and other commodities markets supporting us,” Javelin CEO Peter Bradley added. “The onset of shale gas production has changed the energy landscape in the U.S. and abroad, and we aim to provide services to clients to better manage their business in this dynamic environment.”
