The vessels, each capable of carrying 174,000 m3 of super-cooled gas, will be built exclusively for the PGNiG Group and will enter service in the 1st half of 2024.
Paweł Majewski, PGNiG CEO, said:
- We are consistently developing PGNiG's position on the international LNG market
- Chartering of the tankers is an important step to implement our plans in this area
- It is an optimal solution, ensuring certainty and at the same time flexibility of logistic operations, which are an important element of building competitive advantage
In total, the Polish company has now chartered 4 vessels from Knutsen.
The company said it plans to use these LNG carriers primarily to transport contracted volumes from US liquefaction facilities, contracted by PGNiG in FOB trading formula..
