The President and CEO of Höegh LNG Sveinung J.S. Støhle comments: ”Höegh LNG’s results for Q219 are negatively affected by seasonal variations and dry docking costs. Adjusted for these effects our underlying numbers are in line with previous quarters. I am very pleased to see that the LNG market continues its rapid growth by increasing 16% in the first half of 2019, driven by the continued coal to gas switch and ample LNG supplies available at very competitive prices across the market. This is further reflected by the important progress being made on all FSRU projects where the company is already selected as the FSRU provider or has won exclusivity. In addition, the company is engaged in negotiations and business development activities that aims to see its complete fleet of FSRUs on long-term FSRU contracts by end of 2021.”
