Höegh LNG and Mitsui OSK Lines Confirm LNG Re-gasification Vessels

Thursday, March 29, 2007
Höegh LNG and Mitsui OSK Lines, Ltd. (MOL) confirm the signing of long term time charter parties for two Shuttle and Regasification Vessels (SRV) with SUEZ LNG Trading SA. These vessels are specifically designed to service an offshore natural gas import terminal to be built in Massachusetts Bay offshore the city of Boston on the US East Coast. The vessels will be delivered in 2009 and 2010. The SUEZ owned Neptune LNG LLC received the final license issued by MARAD for the construction of the terminal on 23 March. Environmental awareness and safety The LNG re-gasification vessels and the deepwater port installations can meet the most stringent environmental regulations anywhere in the US for such terminal facilities. By placing the terminal services offshore there is no need for land-based terminals that could affect the local environment. The transportation of LNG by ship has an outstanding track record when it comes to safety.
