Golar has been contracted by Kuwait National Petroleum Company to provide loating storage and regasification ("FSRU") services to support their LNG import operations at Mina Al Ahmadi.

The contract will be for an initial period of 5 years and comprises the provision of portside FSRU services for an anticipated nine months of the year together with a three month window where the vessel is free to pursue spot carrier and other short term business opportunities. 

Winter scheduling of the three month stand-down period together with favourable positioning mean that the company is optimistic for the vessels trading prospects.   The 170,000cbm newbuild FSRU Golar Igloo which delivers during the fourth quarter of 2013 will service the contract that is set to commence in March 2014.  With a total contract value of approximately USD$213 million covering both capital and operating elements over five years, Golar expects to supplement these earnings with additional hire payments during the winter months each year.

Golar LNG's CEO, Doug Arnell said "Kuwait is an established LNG importer and we look forward to working closely with our new customer.  We are very pleased that an experienced LNG industry player such as KNPC has entrusted Golar with their FSRU services which demonstrates our established reputation as a leading operator of floating midstream LNG assets.   As this is a five year charter the vessel will be offered to Golar LNG Partners L.P. to acquire providing for another potential acquisition with a new and particularly strong counterparty."
