Golar LNG Limited
is announced that its subsidiary, Golar Offshore Toscana Limited
has signed a share purchase agreement with OLT Energy Toscana SpA
for the acquisition of 20% of the shares in OLT Offshore LNG Toscana S.p.A.
The new LNG terminal, which earlier this year was granted a government decree approving or permitting the project, will have a regulated capacity of 3.75 Bcm/year. The terminal will be located 20 km out to sea off the Livorno coast; away from populated areas creating substantial environmental and security benefits and significantly reducing visual impact.
Included in the deal is an intention between the parties to sell the LNG carrier Golar Frost to OLT-O. It is also intended that Golar will have certain rights with respect to regasification capacity and LNG transportation.
