Belgian owner Exmar has executed a ten year charter contract with LNG trader Gunvor for the provision of its floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) barge and related services in Bangladesh.
The FSRU barge is currently undergoing site specific modifications at Keppel Shipyard after having been delivered from Wison Offshore and Marine in December 2017, and it is expected to arrive in Bangladesh and start operations in the fourth quarter.
Currently Exmar is in negotiations for the financing of the unit.
Gunvor is keen to support the development of new LNG markets by providing reliable and efficient LNG infrastructure solutions and it believes the floating solution developed and operated by Exmar is going to serve the company’s long term strategy.
Exmar currently owns and operates ten FSRUs.
