Story and Milestones

Founded in 2006, Aragon quickly became KANFA Aragon and a member of the KANFA Group of companies, acting as the centre of excellence for gas processing including full responsibility for LNG and Regasification projects. From 2006 until 2016 KANFA Aragon built our reputation as a pioneer and world leader in Floating LNG, while at the same time executing numerous FPSO topsides and Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) projects for the offshore oil and gas market.

In 2016 we began working with Sembcorp Marine, supporting their FLNG projects which led to Sembcorp Marine acquiring a 50% stake in KANFA Aragon in the summer of 2016 from Sevan Marine ASA.

At this point we left the KANFA Group and once again become simply, Aragon.
