John Angelicoussis is upping his gas ties with Qatar via his company Maran Ventures. He and Qatari gas shipping line Nakilat have formed another joint venture to own four more LNG carriers. The new venture is split 60:40 in Nakilat’s favour. The four 173,400 cu m ships are being built in South Korea.
Angelicoussis commented, “Nakilat has been one of our strategic partners for many years and we are pleased to be strengthening our relationship with them. Through this new venture, I am confident that we will continue to provide first-class services together for all our LNG customers around the world and look forward to further collaborations in the future.”
