Seatrium Limited (Seatrium, or the Group) has renewed its long-term Favored Customer Contract (FCC) with GasLog LNG Services Ltd and Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Limited (STASCO) to provide ship repairs, refurbishment and upgrading for their LNG carriers from 2024 to 2029, with an option for further renewal.

This contract marks a collaborative partnership between Seatrium and these two leading maritime companies with whom the Group has established a long history of collaboration.

The contract involves the repairs, refurbishment and upgrading of the two entities’ combined fleet of 43 LNG carriers docking in Southeast Asia to Seatrium Repairs and Upgrades, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Group. It also supports joint planning, information and experience sharing, leveraging complementary resources of the Group to achieve sustainable targets in HSE (Health, Safety and Environment), quality, cost efficiency and timely deliveries.

Mr. Kostas Karathanos, Chief Operating Officer of GasLog LNG Services, said, ”We are delighted to renew our favored customer agreement for another five years. We have enjoyed many years of partnership to refit the majority of our fleet here and trusted Seatrium in the conversion of our Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU). The recent tender we jointly ran with STASCO indicates that Seatrium remains a competitive shipyard offering high quality services. This aligns with our strategic direction of optimizing costs and leveraging our competitiveness. We look forward to strengthening our relationship as we work towards safe, timely and on-budget deliveries for the conversions, repairs and upgrades of our LNG carriers.”

Mr. Alvin Gan, Executive Vice President, Repairs and Upgrades, Seatrium, added, “We are honored and delighted to have our exclusive partnership agreement renewed with both GasLog and STASCO. Partnering with world-class vessel owners increases our market share of LNG repairs and upgrades and enhances our capabilities as a world-class shipyard group. The selection of Seatrium as the LNG refit partner in Singapore is a major boost to Singapore’s status as a major global hub. We thank both GasLog and STASCO for their trust in us and we are confident that our long-term partnership will deliver mutual benefits and continuous improvements to all partners involved.”

Seatrium is the world’s leader for the repairs, upgrades, and conversion of LNG carriers, holding an extensive track record of 11 Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) conversions since 2007. FSRU conversions are highly complex processes that involve extensive modifications to the vessel’s structure, systems and equipment. In addition, Seatrium converted the world’s first Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG), Golar Hili, in 2017. The Group has established a strong presence in the growing LNG market, which is expected to continue to expand in the coming years.
