EXMAR has over 35 years of experience in the transportation of LNG since the long-term time charter of the 131,000 m³ METHANIA was concluded with Belgian natural gas distributor Distrigas NV in the late 1970s. At the time, the METHANIA was the largest LNG carrier in the world.
EXMAR currently operates a wide fleet of LNG carriers which vary in size and technical specifications. Many of the LNG carriers designed by EXMAR can also be deployed as LNG shuttle and regasification vessel, or as floating storage regasification unit (FSRU).
The niche market of small and mid-scale LNG shipping is considered a growth market as it frequently provides a cost-efficient solution to the shipping requirements for the numerous regional LNG export and import projects under development worldwide. In this innovative market EXMAR is well positioned to leverage its longstanding experience in the shipping and handling of liquid gases.
As part of its suite of LNG value chain solutions, EXMAR not only offers LNG shipping solutions, but also provides tailor-made logistical solutions to promote the use of LNG as fuel for ships. LNG as a shipping fuel is an excellent solution for ship owners to meet the various stringent emission regulations that will come into force.
