The National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) announces that its 80% owned subsidiary company National Chemical Carriers Ltd. Co. has decided to cancel a shipbuilding contract for the chemical tanker (NCC Bader) due to the delay in delivery beyond the agreed date in the shipbuilding contract.

According to the contract signed with ShinaSB Yard Co. Ltd. in 2007 and subsequent supplementary agreements signed during 2012, National Chemical Carriers is entitled to cancel the shipbuilding contract if the delay exceeds the period specified in the contract which also reserves the rights for the company to get refunded of total pre-delivery installments paid amounting to (USD 41.6 million). The paid installments are guaranteed by The Export-Import Bank of Korea, including related compensation expected to reach (US$ 7 Million).
