Hyundai Heavy, Nigeria to Set up LNG Shipping Firm

Thursday, April 26, 2007
Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., the world's biggest shipbuilder, said on Wednesday it will set up a shipping firm with Nigeria's state-run Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. (NNPC) to deliver liquefied natural gas. Hyundai will own 49 percent stake in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) joint venture shipping company, to be named Nigeria Korea Marine (NIKORMA) Transport Ltd., while NNPC will own 51 percent.

The shipbuilder will eventually deliver crude and oil products after initially focusing on LNG, Hyundai said. Earlier this year, Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. said it will set up a similar shipping firm with NNPC, a joint venture called Nigeria Daewoo Shipping Ltd., which will transport merchant goods, crude oil and petroleum products.
