[post_content] => Teekay LNG Partners’ fleet of ethylene-capable LPG tankers are to join the Lauritzen Kosan ethylene pool, effective 1 March. Together with Lauritzen Kosan’s 11 ethylene carriers, three ethylene carriers supplied by other owners, and Teekay LNG’s seven-strong ethylene fleet, the Lauritzen Kosan pool will become one of the leading suppliers of ethylene carrying capacity in the smaller gas carrier size segment with a total of 21 units. “We are proud to have Teekay LNG, a world leader in energy transportation, joining us in our strategy to service existing and new customers. This is an indication of our strong market position in the gas carrier industry,” says Thomas Wøidemann, CEO of Lauritzen Kosan.
Teekay LNG’s ethylene carriers range in size from 5,500 m³ to 12,000 m³. The three smaller units are also capable of carrying liquid chemicals, while the two 2011-built 12,000-m³ carriers can also handle LNG.
“With Lauritzen Kosan’s close and long-lasting customer relationships, we are confident that we have found the right commercial and operational platform for our fleet of ethylene gas carriers,” says Mark Kremin, president/CEO of Teekay Gas Group Ltd. Teekay’s ethylene carriers were formerly operated in a joint venture with Exmar.
