Awilco LNG’s net loss grows

Oslo-based Awilco LNG, the owner of two 156,000-cbm LNG carriers, widened its net loss in the fourth quarter as compared to the same period the year before.

Awilco LNG’s net loss rose to $4.5 million in the fourth quarter, as compared to $2.49 million in the same quarter last year. Compared to the previous quarter, the net loss dropped from $6.79 million.

For the full year of 2017, Awilco LNG posted a net loss of $31.8 million compared to $22.8 million in 2016.

Freight income for the quarter was $9.6 million, up from $5.7 in the quarter before and from $9.09 million in the year before, due to the improving market fundamentals. Awilco LNG said.

Full-year freight income dropped significantly to $20.4 million, compared to $34.8 million in 2016.

The decrease reflects both the weak market rates in the first half of 2017, and the redelivery of WilForce from a three-year time-charter in December 2016, according to Awilco LNG.

Fleet utilisation for the quarter ended at 83 percent, compared to 88 percent in the previous quarter, while in 2017 fleet utilisation was 5 percent down on year to 74 percent.

Both of the company’s vessels have been operating in the spot market in 2017.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
