Keppel Shipyard Limited (Keppel Shipyard), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M), has secured a firm contract from Golar Gimi Corporation (Golar Gimi), a subsidiary of Golar LNG Limited (Golar LNG), to perform the conversion of a second Moss Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carrier, the GIMI, into a Floating Liquefaction Vessel (FLNGV). The contract, which has become effective, is worth approximately US$705 million.

Mr Michael Chia, Managing Director (Marine & Technology), Keppel O&M, said, "We are happy that Golar LNG is proceeding with their second FLNGV conversion, and would like to thank them for once again entrusting Keppel Shipyard as their lead contractor of choice. This second contract comes just six months after the first contract, and we are encouraged by this positive development. We, together with Golar LNG and our partner Black & Veatch, are confident that FLNGV conversion solutions are indeed the answer to a need to bring small and mid-scale Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) supplies to market in a more timely and cost-efficient manner."

The conversion award of the GIMI marks the exercise of the first of two options, which were part of an earlier firm contract awarded by Golar to Keppel Shipyard for the conversion of another Moss LNG carrier, the HILLI, into an FLNGV.
