Milaha Buys Remaining Stake in 2 LNG Carriers from Société Générale

Milaha Buys Entire Stake in 2 LNG Carriers

Qatar-based holding company Milaha has through its wholly owned subsidiary – Qatar Shipping Company – acquired the remaining 60% interest in each of the two entities that own the liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, Milaha Ras Laffan and Milaha Qatar, from French banking and financial services company Société Générale.

The vessels are chartered to RasGas under a 25 year long-term fixed time charter agreement. Milaha Ras Laffan and Milaha Qatar have approximately 14 years and 16 years remaining, respectively, under the time charter agreement.

Both vessels were built by Samsung Heavy Industries. Milaha Ras Laffan was built in 2004 with a capacity of 138,273 cbm while Milaha Qatar was built in 2006 with a capacity of 145,602 cbm.

”This transaction reflects our disciplined execution of our long term strategy of investing in core businesses. We have a strong momentum and believe that we can sustain our growth and continue to execute on our strategy,” said Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al Thani, Chairman of Milaha.
