Exmar, Golar Mull Possible LNG Merger

Thursday, May 31, 2001
Exmar, the tanker division of Belgian shipping company CMB is reportedly in talks with Norway's Golar LNG to merge their liquified natural gas activities.

It was reported that Exmar director Nicolas Saverys said the new LNG company would have assets worth $500 million.

"We are in detailed negotiations with (John) Frederiksen (Golar LNG's shipping magnate owner) about bringing our LNG activities into a new joint venture," Saverys was quoted as saying.

While no details were given on the shares of the ownership of the new company, he said he hoped the merger would be completed in the next two weeks and lead to a listing of the new company on a U.S. stock exchange.
