The FPC Announces Investment by Overseas

Friday, September 08, 2006
The Floating Pipeline Company Incorporated (FPC Inc.) of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada announced an investment by Overseas Shipholding Group, a leader in providing marine energy transportation services. The investment will allow FPC Inc. to complete the development of its Saint John, New Brunswick manufacturing plant, which will manufacture Gas Transport Modules (GTMs) using a patented technology for the transportation of compressed natural gas (CNG) by rail, truck and ship. The plant is expected to be in full production within twelve months.

CNG can be used in the niche market for stranded gas. Stranded gas is defined as any gas that cannot today be economically brought to market using conventional pipeline or liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology. A recent announcement by OSG to form a strategic partnership with TransCanada CNG Technologies Ltd. will facilitate the recovery of natural gas from stranded fields for specific projects.
