Höegh LNG’s president and chief executive officer, Sveinung J. S. Støhle, said that with this contract Höegh LNG has full contract coverage for its FSRU fleet of 9 units on the water and under construction.

Commenting on the agreement, Ahmet Caliskan, GEIL’s group CEO said that in addition to the 1.3 mtpa LNG supply deal executed with Qatargas, the company is nearing the signing of an additional 3 mtpa LNG supply deal with two major suppliers.
