Höegh LNG has through its 50/50 joint venture company Methane Carriers Ltd. signed an agreement with Gas Natural Aprovisionamientos SDG (Gas Natural) for an extension of the time charter for the 87,000 m(3) LNG carrier Norman Lady at improved commercial terms.

The agreement is for further trading for a period of 1 + 2 years at the Charterer’s option. The 12 month firm period will commence in September 2012 as a direct continuation of the present charter.

HLNG’s share of the EBITDA contribution is expected to be about USD 6.5 million for the 12 month firm period and USD 8.7 million for the optional period, excluding dry docking expenses.

The optional period will have to be exercised 6 months prior to the end of the firm period.

Höegh LNG’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Sveinung Støhle, said in a comment: “We are delighted to have extended the charter period for Norman Lady with Gas Natural, building further on a relationship with one of our valued customers. At the same time we are able to capitalize on the present strong shipping market to continue servicing Gas Natural.”

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
