Belgium’s Exmar said it has entered into talks to sell its stake in the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) business to Dutch terminals operator Vopak.

Exmar said in its statement on Friday that the outcome of these discussions is currently unknown.

The Nicolas Saverys-led company co-owns and/or operates a fleet of 10 FSRUs and has one FSRU and one FLNG facility under construction.

“Vopak has earmarked storage and handling of LNG/gas as one of its strategic focus areas. Therefore Vopak is looking for strategic opportunities to strengthen its presence as a service provider in the LNG infrastructure market,” the statement said.

Vopak jointly owns and operates two land-based storage and regasification terminals, the Gate terminal in the port of Rotterdam and the TLA terminal in Altamira, Mexico.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

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.
