Hoegh LNG Extends Its Option Agreement with HHI for Delivery of Two FSRUs

Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd has extended its option agreements with Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. (HHI) for the delivery of two FSRUs, that were to expire by mid December 2011 and mid January 2012, respectively.

Both option agreements are now valid into first quarter 2012. The Company’s third and fourth option agreements are not affected by this agreement.

Höegh LNG is a fully integrated floating LNG services company with almost 40 years experience, offering long-term floating production, transportation, regasification and terminal solutions for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) market. The Company operates a fleet of five LNG marine transportation vessels and two shuttle and regasification vessels (SRVs). In addition to transporting LNG, the SRVs act as floating regasification terminals delivering natural gas to the market.

The Hyundai shipyard stretches over four kilometers along the coast of Mipo Bay in Ulsan, Korea. The Shipbuilding Division is capable of building all types of ships to meet various demands from its clients. It has nine large-scale dry docks with seven huge ‘Goliath Cranes’.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
