Belgium’s Exmar, the Nicolas Savery-led shipowner, said it has sold its 138,107-cbm LNG carrier Excel.

The 2003-built carrier has been delivered to its new owners on October 6, Exmar said.

The net proceeds realized by Exmar’s sale of its 50 percent share in the joint venture owning the vessel will be approximately $23 million.

The company operates a fleet of LNG carriers capable of being deployed as LNG shuttle and regasification vessel, or as floating storage regasification units (FSRU).

The Antwerp-based company said that its first-half operating result was impacted by a non-cash impairment of $22.5 million on the LNG carrier Excel as well as costs related to the late delivery of the Caribbean FLNG.

Prior to the sale, Exmar explored several employment alternatives for the vessel which has been employed uninterruptedly from December 2016 to July 2017 for Indonesian account.

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.
