Avance Gas Adds Two VLGCs to Its Fleet

Stolt-Nielsen Limited announced that Avance Gas, a company owned equally by Sungas Holdings and Stolt-Nielsen Gas, has agreed to acquire two VLGCs-Maran Gas Knossos and Maran Gas Vergina-from Maran Gas Maritime Inc.

The ships are expected to join Avance Gas Limited’s fleet by the end of August 2012, increasing the size of the fleet to seven VLGCs.

Commenting on the transaction, Mr. Niels G. Stolt-Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Stolt-Nielsen Limited, said: “Avance Gas remains focused on its goal of establishing itself as a significant player in the LPG transportation market, where the growth outlook continues to strengthen. These new ships move the company closer to its targeted fleet size, which the company believes will give increased access to spot and contract business with the world’s major shippers of LPG.”

The Avance Gas fleet trades mainly in the spot market, loading in the Middle East for destinations primarily in Asia.

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.
