BW Group Limited and Mitsui & Co. are pleased to announce the formation of a Joint Venture (JV) to jointly own the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) BW Integrity. Mitsui & Co. has purchased a 49% share in BW Integrity, and BW continues to own a 51% share in the vessel. BW will continue to provide commercial and technical management services. BW Integrity is currently in Port Qasim on a 15-year charter to PGP Consortium Limited (PGPC), to provide LNG regasification services at Pakistan’s second LNG import terminal.

BW Group’s CEO Carsten Mortensen said: "BW and Mitsui have a long history of close cooperation in many business areas and having Mitsui as a JV partner is a special relationship on which we hope to build for many years to come. It is our privilege to have such a well-established name in the energy and maritime investment spheres take an interest in one of our vessels.”

BW LNG’s MD Yngvil ?sheim said: “BW Integrity represents BW’s commitment to provide customers with high quality floating solutions for LNG and we are proud to team up with Mitsui to further enhance our delivery. BW Integrity is ready to serve Pakistan’s energy needs for the next 15 years.”

Mitsui & Co.’s Chief Operating Officer of the Integrated Transportation Systems Business Unit II, Takeshi Setozaki said: “Mitsui and BW have enjoyed a good relationship for many years in various shipping areas. The opportunity for us to enter the FSRU business is a very big step forward for our future business strategy. As a LNG receiving/regasification base project is an extension of the LNG shipping business area, it is important to acquire know-how of the FSRU business and to maintain effective relationships with partners like BW. I am convinced that this partnership will also greatly contribute to Mitsui &Co.’s gas sales strategy. I would like to continue to expand this business area firmly in the future.”

BW is a leading international gas shipping company with more than 80 years of maritime energy transportation history, 40 years of operational experience in LNG and a current fleet of 21 LNG carriers and FSRUs including newbuildings. BW’s first FSRU, the BW Singapore, is currently involved in a five-year contract providing LNG regasification and storage services in Sumed, Egypt.
